With five shorts added to his repertoire, DUST OF WAR denote the component presentation of author/chief Andrew Kightlinger, who sadly might need to stay away from the long shape until he facilitate hones his filmmaking discernment. or if nothing else gathers more assets. Since here, working under an expected million dollar spending plan, this purported “activity” motion picture is to a great extent dispossessed of anything warranting the term. Rather what we have is a drowsy one-note story that is extremely genuine for its own great, punctuated by crazy moderate mo shots and long spells of lead characters meandering through a desolate area with little to do.
In the event that I needed to make a correlation, I’d say the purpose of the film would lay some place between VALHALLA RISING and THE BOOK OF ELI, yet the execution of said aim is never at any point remotely satisfyingly figured it out. Completely, DUST OF WAR feels awkward and novice in verging on each perspective.
