Certainly some of the clearest expressions of these meanings to the binding of Isaac are found in the rabbinic literature that was penned after the destruction of Jerusalem. But the earlier delineations of these interpretations are seen as early as the second century b.
But there was just something about the movie's cover with the tentacle that was alluring and interesting, and that made me actually sit down to watch this horror movie.
Naturally I didn't have much of any expectations to the movie, because I had never heard about it prior to actually finding the movie.
So there is action from almost the very beginning of the movie.
And there was no need to establish that, because you don't need to be particularly attached to the characters in the movie for it to work properly. The special effects and CGI in the movie were serving their purposes well enough, although you can clearly see that it is computer animated. Some of the CGI was actually downright laughable to witness.
But still, it does look adequate enough, and it is much better than the special effects in many other horror movies. They actually had some fair acting talents in the movie. And I must admit that I wasn't familiar with anyone in the movie aside from Jamie Kennedy.
Now, I can't claim to be a fan of Jamie Kennedy in any way, but he was actually cut out for this particular character. It should be said that people in the movie were actually doing good jobs with their given roles and characters.
Writers Alex Greenfield and Ben Powell actually came up with an interesting concept for the plot and script. And I will say that the storyline was original, so that was a nice and fresh approach.
The most disappointing aspect to the movie, aside from the questionable CGI effects, was that you had to wait almost to the very end of the movie before tentacles started to emerge from the sand. Up to that point it was small wriggling tendrils that emerged from the sand.
I had expected more tentacle action from the movie, especially given the movie's cover. However, I will say that the fluorescent tentacle was really worth the wait, because that was cool and looked good.
The atmosphere of the movie was good, and there was a real sense of dread and endangerment to the young people marooned on the beach. All in all, then I actually found "The Sand" to be an adequately entertaining movie, though it is hardly the type of movie that you will watch more than a single time - provided that you actually manage to sit through it the first time.
My rating for "The Sand" is a mediocre five stars out of ten. Was this review helpful to you?A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin penned this story about the crew of a highly advanced, artificially intelligent spaceship on a mission to rendezvous with a mysterious alien.
