Body Cam (2020)
Meh. Just meh. I probably could have, should have, ended my review right there, because how else do you sum up a “mystery, thriller, and horror” movie that is entirely watchable, but offers little to no mystery, thrills, or horror? It felt like there was something “there” in the story, which is probably what kept me watching, and hoping it would eventually coalesce into a good movie. It doesn’t. Unfortunately, the plotting, scenes, and characters aren’t ever adequately developed to the point where you feel like you can connect with the film, It feels somehow distant as you’re watching. The dialog and performances are lackluster as well, but when all is said and done, you have to pin the disappointment with this film squarely on a screenplay that let down and otherwise interesting premise.
