Holes   April 21st, 2010

Originally Written 04/23/03

When I first saw the trailer for Holes, it looked like a really interesting film. It held up to its promise and was thoroughly enjoyable. The story had one of the more complex plots I’ve seen in a family movie, weaving together the destinies of the the three central charcters’ family lines. While it was a little predictable how things were utlimately going to work out, the story was still quite intelligent, and entertaining.

The narrative of the film flowed nicely, using flashbacks to flesh out the backstory. It combined comedy and drama with mythos and the friendship of a buddy story. It was a delight to watch and a nice change from the standard fare. The book it’s based on has gotten great reviews too.
