I wasn't expecting much going into this B-grade film with actors I've never heard of, and also noticed it was a Toronto Canada B-grade production by newb writers and director Reza Sholeh and Ant Horasanli.
Yes it was a mishmash of a lot of films we've seen before, and it was a little cliched, but to be able to take the fun and decent parts of those films, and use the cliches as humor, it ends up being a decent, fun and entertaining story.
The 91 min runtime and pacing were spot on. The score was decent, especially for a B-grade film, and the music awesome for the most part, although not necessary in so many scenes. The acting was surprisingly good for novice actors I've never seen or heard of, especially Sean Rey, Francesco Filice and Hannah Gordon, who were very convincing in their roles. I wasn't that impressed with Alex Loubert as Sammy - not sure if it was his character and/or his acting. The directing, cinematography and editing seemed very professional - you'd think seasoned filmmakers were involved.
Rev is a fun and mature film with cool ngst-ngst Techno music, decent pacing, cool and chic Toronto locales, and a showcase of some fine exotic cars. I thoroughly and surprisingly enjoyed it.
I feel this film is undeservingly rated too low, considering it's a novice B-grade film that's better than most I've seen, even better than some Hollywood productions that have come out lately. It's a solid 8/10 from me. To see how I professionally review and rate my 900+ reviews and 1000+ ratings, click on my username.
