User Review

Could have been so much better

Rating: 6/10

Considering how great this movie was in the beginning I was stunned why
I had never heard of it or why it only got a rating of 6.0 on IMDb. It
had to have something to do with how the story unfolded. Turns out,
that this is indeed the problem. The first 45 minutes of "The I Inside"
are really a blast. The story sucks you in immediately and unfolds
beautifully until a certain point is reached where the writer lost
control and messed up what had been set up so well. All of a sudden the
story's getting way over the top, apparently for no other reason than
to keep the viewer puzzled. That wouldn't have been necessary. They
could have taken the story anywhere as intriguing as it started.
Unfortunately, the plot becomes uneven when the "rules" of the movie
are adapted arbitrarily. The final solution doesn't really come as a
surprise anymore. Worse still, it's not good enough to explain
everything. It's obvious that there are mistakes and flaws throughout
the script and it's a shame, because, as I've said, unlike a lot of
other movies where the story is already set up for an impossible,
unbelievable ending, "The I Inside" had a more than promising start.
Anyway, although the movie isn't completely satisfying and kind of
stumbles over its own feet, it's still very entertaining to watch. It
has an atmospheric stage play-like atmosphere (in fact, the story has
been adapted from a play called "Point Of Death") and there are some
really creative suspense scenes. Summing up, "The I Inside" isn't the
masterpiece it could have been, but it's a nice way to spend 90
