STICK MAN (Television Release United Kingdom 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì 

Stick Man—short film—has a main character as a stick man that seems to stand in front of its story rather than being a part of its story. The constant repetition of its reminder that it is a stick man is annoying and detracts from the overall likability of the film. The short film lacks enough storyline to make it interesting.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. This short film may work for children, but adults would prefer the short film, Piper, instead.
