WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
In exchange for an early release, a group of juvenile delinquents are forced to do community service by cleaning up an abandoned

Ah, screw it: A big mean dude kills some teenagers.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
As far as crappy slasher movies go, SEE NO EVIL isnt the worst Ive ever seen, which is what I was expecting when the first words on the screen were WWE Films Presents. Its fast paced and there are a few good kills, even though the whole eye gouging thing gets stale pretty quickly. (See no evil...get it?) I dont watch wrestling so Im not familiar with this Kane fella, but he fits the killer role fine; physically imposing, mean-looking and only has to say one line of dialogue.

By normal movie standards though, SEE NO EVIL is as terrible as youd expect. The abrasive editing alone made me want to turn it off after ten minutes. And with the focus split over so many different characters, you know jack and squat about each. That made things interesting in the sense that, with no obvious protagonist, it wasnt easy predicting who gets killed. But as far as caring about any of the characters, no sir. In fact, the only person who gets any real background is the killer, whose flashbacks make you sympathize with him more than any of the victims.

Of course you dont go in to a movie like SEE NO EVIL expecting the second rubric, but even for a trashy horror movie its nothing new, just a retread on the insane religious freak killing sinful teenagers genre. Perhaps its biggest crime is setting up a hot prison-lesbian romance and then not delivering.
THE EXTRAS
You get your standard extras:

Commentary by writer Dan Madigan and director Gregory Dark: A little too serious and straightforward for a movie like this. I didnt hear one laugh the entire time. If you actually care about how they made this movie, or if you fancy repeated witticisms like Thats a nice shot. I like that then you might enjoy this.

Commentary by Kane and producer Jed Blaugrund: Another serious, laugh-free commentary. I dont think Kane has ever seen a movie before, since he points out insider trivia like, That scene took hours to film because we had to get different angles! or When you see that filter, its from the killers point of view!

Do You See The Sin: The Making of SEE NO EVIL (13:01): A little bit of everythingcasting Kane, prosthetics and filming, post production effects, and [gulp] potential sequels.

Kane: Journey in to Darkness (2:58): A compilation of Kanes best moments in the WWE. As I said before Im not a wrestling fan (although it was funny seeing him body slam a bride on her wedding day).

Storyboard-to-Film Comparison (1:20): See one of the better kills (involving the PETA chick) in various formats.

WWE Promotional Spots: Ten minute-long commercials that I assume were aired during a wrestling show.

Also, Theatrical and Teaser Trailers.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I can only imagine somebody paying money to see this movie if they were a big fan of the WWE or Kane. Otherwise, if its ever on cable late at night and youre too lazy to change the channelat least you know what youre in for.

Extra Tidbit: Gregory Dark is a former adult film director, whose credits include WHITE BUNBUSTERS, DR. PENETRATION, BETWEEN THE CHEEKS and an Xzibit music video.
