Idle Hands review

Truth be told, Idle Hands isn't a bad movie. In many ways, it's enjoyable. But it's a bit silly for me, and while I can enjoy a comedic horror film, I prefer the silliness notched down. Idle Hands didn't get the memo.

As I said, though, it's not a bad film. The cast is damn good, actually - Devon Sawa did a great job as the main character, Seth Green and Elden Henson (who I recognized immediately from the NetFlix Daredevil series - he plays Foggy Nelson) were both pretty good, and Jessica Alba looked particularly attractive as the film's vixen. The acting, while oft over-exaggerated, works fine. We even get some okay gore in a few scenes.

I've not seen this movie in a long time (and by a long time, I mean since elementary school - I'm 22 now), and I remembered some of the scenes that spooked me the most, mainly the scene in which Anton cuts his hand off, and the scene in the vents. Both are quite effective. Not as effective though, in my opinion, is much of the beginning - before Anton cuts his hand off, I wasn't terribly interested. It's after the maiming in which things really pick up, which I'm grateful for (though I do think the guardian angels portion at the end is rather stupid). Idle Hands is a perfectly fine movie, really. It's just not really my type of thing. Solid actors, though.
