Brian And Charles (2022) (a film mini-review by Mark R. Leeper).
Brian and Charles is expanded from a 2017 12-minute film, and serves as evidence that some shorts do not expand well.
The plot has almost nothing to do with the premise (an eccentric character builds a robot), which has become more of a MacGuffin. The plot could just as easily have centered around an eccentric character and a younger brother.
There are some inconsistencies that were introduced in the expansion. For example, why is all the introductory material being filmed as a documentary? Are we to believe it is all a documentary or is that aspect dropped early on? It seemed a promising idea, but was very disappointing.
Released theatrically 17th June 2022.
Rating: 0 (-4 to +4) or 4/10.
