I’ve said before how I enjoy a swift 90 minute film. So to see Slaxx, with it’s amusing central idea of killer jeans, come in at an ultra-lean 77 minutes? How could I say no!
With much stronger production values than I thought it may have, it was a pretty good 77 minutes too.
Of course you have to buy into the main conceit of sentient trousers first. Pick at the threads and it unravels.
A game cast, clever effects, and a message on consumerism add up into something that isn’t going to change your world, but should prove an amusingly unique watch.
