DELGO (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.1|5.0 Starsì

Delgo is one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a long time. It vies with Battle for Terra for lowest star rating achievement. The film has no strong storyline. Character development waivers. Cameramen cut scenes before they’re complete (i.e., the opening of the chest scene) and leave the viewer with no expectation, no bridge for the next scenes. Delgo’s best friend is a ‘goofy jerk’, but the ‘jerk’ makes too many mistakes so that the comedic element is lost. Those scenes need serious editing for ultimate effect. It’s obvious that much time, care, and money went into the making of this film; but, unfortunately, the end result is poor.

Storyline

The Lokni permit the Nohrin to settle in Jhamora, but the Nohrin become land greedy. Their greed causes conflict that results in war. Delgo, a Nohrin, experiences the death of his father and mother and becomes vengeful.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Directors Marc F. Adler and Jason Maurer for directing efforts. Thank you to Producer Marc F. Adler for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. Despite the well-chosen and well-known character voices, Delgo is pretty much a waste of time.
