“ 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.
