Rubinrot (2013) – review

WEBdl – german audio track with italian subtitles

Long story short: a girl prepared herself to be the next time traveller, to just discover that she’s not the chosen one.

Another teenager movie, but this time it does not involves vampires or werewolves (strange, uh?) but “only” time travels… but, again, like Vampire Academy, anybody talks A LOT!

I expected some more action… indeed, there are some, but the action scenes are few, and the ending is left completely open… I discovered after that the story is taken from the first of three book series; I agree that it should be left open, but not in that way!

Even Eragon – not one of the most successful movie of the last years, even if I liked it – had a “real” end, but left something open for an eventual sequel; but it was a complete product. In this case, you are awaiting for something that never happened!

I strongly hope thay will find the budget to make the second and third film in the franchise, not because I liked it, but because I’m curious to see what will happen – and I’m too lazy to read the books…

Acting is not bad, but locations are a bit inadequate, in particular the family home, where the lodge was quite interesting; music was almost not present – and, if it was there, I didn’t hear that because people talk almost always!

Reccomended in particular to any teenager that liked Twilight and want to experience a new story not based on supernatural “usual” characters.

My vote: 5/10
