Ink is one weird movie, hard to explain, even harder to appreciate once it’s over because the plot is so trite. But you don’t really see the plot until the end. The way it’s structured you’re more or less constantly trying to figure out what’s going on.

The visuals, however, are stunning, especially the appearance of the, what? The evil ones? With their glass-pane faces and glowing goggled eyes? Director/writer Jamin Winans has a weird mind. But he’s produced a captivating story. Right up until the very end when you realize it was rather pedestrian all along.

I did like the fact that I was able to watch it on my Amazon Fire tablet, avoiding the house of the sticky floors. How many stars on the Stanleymeter? Three. Try the trailer first. It sucked me in. You might like the movie more than I did.
