It is done well and I enjoyed it.

It has a steady but slow pace.

This film captures the summer at the Jersey Shore in a verbal and visually compelling way.

Anyway, Low Tide is a numbing, languid drama/thriller that marks the directing debut of one Kevin McMullin (his only previous credit was a short called First Prize).

Very realistic and exciting.

His editor (Ed Yonaitis) shapes the film in slow, tight cuts which favor the actor's rhythms.

The story and the twists and turns kept me interested throughout and the ending was most unexpected.

super entertaining drama / thriller .

For me, "Tide" at eighty-six drawn-out minutes, is like a mixture of The Outsiders, 2001's Bully, Stand by Me, and Hot Summer Nights.

Engaging and Impressive .

THAT was creative, different, and exciting!

Even the soundtrack of this movie sounds like the sort of soundtrack all these movies have - all sombre cellos and slow strings.

And the ending clearly shows there was no compromise on the part of the creators of this movie, but not because the plot ending is in itself unexpected: it is the tone which is unexpected (and as such will leave a more lasting impression).

Waste of time.

Despite the generally fascinating acting and the beautiful images presented in this film, there are a few shortcomings in this movie.

The characters are grounded and well performed, the cinematography is gorgeous, and the story is compelling and has great dramatic turns.
