Ok so I saw this movie today. THE COVENANT: BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL or CANES as it is also called with Edward Furlong and Michael Madsen. Now as we all know Ed Furlong was great in Terminator 2. No questions asked. Hats off to the boy who dared to stand up against The Guvernator like that and also drive an 80cc motorbike with at least 20 gears!
But today Edward FUCKING Furlong screwed up bad. And by bad I mean BAD! This piece of shit movie wasted approx. 1,5h of my valuable time. Time that I will not get back. EVER!
There was nothing good with this movie at all. Mostly I am very lenient when it comes to bad movies and I do my best to try and find something good in every movie. If I weren't so pissed off I would have found at least a few things that I would acknowledge as average. Maybe I would say that the moving monster canes and tree spirits (both 3D of course) were ok or that there were at least a few hot girls in the movie but no. No sir there was not. Nothing but bad fitted suits on this drunken blast from the past and the lousiest script/dialogue I have ever seen or heard if you will.
And Michael Madsen did not do anything to help out with the situation at all. We all know Michael from classic movies such as Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Species to name but a few. But this is most likely a new low for him. His character in this movie is an American speaking blind German Nazi officer with some form of eternal life or what ever that get's a hold of this super cane that can cure his blindness but also make him super evil. WTF!
And yes obviously Ed get's blinded. Blinded by this graffiti painting car thief and later get's contacted by the Covenant who tells him that they can cure his blindness but he need to make dirty deeds for them. Any takers. Of course there was. So he also get's cured from his blindness and yes you guessed it becomes evil.
Ok maybe I'm a bit harsh. We have been talking about this movie quite a lot this past day so. Maybe, just maybe it has a purpose but I couldn't say what it is.
Please do not see this movie. Or actually you should see it just to understand where I'm coming from.
