With the help of God and some newfound friends, Cody sets out to do just that, but they encounter trouble along the way from those who want to silence them forever.
Production Quality (0 points)
Creed of Gold is supposed to be some serious action adventure epic, but it’s just not. Unfortunately, Crystal Creek Media still doesn’t have production quality down. From poor lighting to dizzying camera angles to cheap special effects and CGI, this one is a real doozy. With clearly no boom mic to speak of nearly all of the dialogue is voiced over in post, and it’s very obvious that they are voiceovers. Any audio that is not voiced over is very poor, and the ‘action’ soundtrack is very loud and annoying. In short, if you don’t have the resources to make a good action production, please don’t make one at all.
Plot and Storyline Quality (0 points)
What is this plot? From the confusing prologue to the silly unrealistic premise of a bunch of college students trying to hack the Federal Reserve, there is no sense or continuity here. Random things just happen for no reason, subplots jump all over the place, and leaps in logic are constantly used to drive the plot. Despite the constant in-your-face anti-Fed propaganda and many long and drawn out conversations about isolating topics, the plot is still extremely complicated and offers no explanation as to how characters go from point A to point B. Due to the droning conversations, the characters are extremely one-dimensional and the villains are very cheesy. Creed of Gold just feels like an idea that never figured out what it was supposed to be.
Acting Quality (0 points)
Unfortunately, there is nothing good to say here either. The acting is very wooden and robotic. Little emotion is demonstrated from this cast, and there are too many obviously fake accents. I wish there was something good to say, but there’s just not.
We think the Crystal Creek Media team means well, but they have been short on delivery. Since Creed of Gold is almost a National Treasure knockoff, we strongly suggest they reconsider what types of plots they are writing. Also, until more resources are available for better production quality, action adventure films are probably not the way to go. We believe they have potential, they just need some direction and better backing. Perhaps they will improve in the future.
