The gimmick of this isn't intriguing and has been done multiple times. A film shot entirely on a cell phone? This is old news. Why should I be impressed that they intend to put it in theaters?

And I must say, the acting is horrible in the 5 minute preview they show. These are amateurs with a cell phone and some editing gear.

To get inspired, check out the many impressive usages of cell phone only shorts and films on Vimeo. You can find countless examples

These are amateurs hoping to pocket some money with a low-rent idea and no creative edge. Not impressed.
