Eagle vs Shark (2007) Film Review


Lily (Loren Horsley) is an odd girl who works in a fast food store in a city in New Zealand and has a huge crush on Jarrod (Germaine Clement), an equally odd character. After proving herself a worthy competitor on a computer game, they end up dating. Jarrod takes Lily back to his home town, but things don’t go as smoothly as she hoped.

It’s quirky and weird, and the characters are all a little strange, but not enough to grab me. Really, I didn’t mind it, but I did get a bit bored. The story kind of didn’t really go anywhere, and I had little investment. Some of the odd storylines, such as Jarrod wanting to fight the guy who had bullied him at school, weren’t bad, but were dragged out too long to keep my interest. Plus, there were funny parts, but nothing that truly made me laugh.
