[Review] TIFF ’11: ‘The Incident’ Both Unpleasant and Not Scary

Mixing rock stars and a prison riot sounded like a good idea, but unfortunately word out of the Toronto International Film Festival premiere was that French filmmaker Alexandre Courtes’s The Incident is completely lackluster. Fred Topel reviews.

What keeps the film from being any fun is the pace is so slow that a small burst of energy isn’t enough to recover. The atmosphere is just unpleasant, not scary, so the kills aren’t glorious.
