The Comic Critic Reviews Breakfast on Pluto

Growing up in religiously and politically divided Ireland has enough troubles of its own and has been used as a setting for a number of movie. Now add into that movie the hero as a boy orphaned as a baby. That’s not enough? Go ahead and make the boy transgendered. You think that would be enough for the writers of Breakfast on Pluto, but no. I’m not against writers adding in lots of details, but don’t focus those details on character development when the character is formed twenty minutes into the film. I can see the effort placed into Breakfast on Pluto, but I found some of that effort to be misdirected. The soundtrack was likeable, but I didn’t attach the soundtrack to the film since I wasn’t emotionally attached to any of the scenes.

p.s. For Dr. Who fans: There are no 'real' Daleks in this movie - just fanboys. Didn't I say in the first panel that this was not Sci-Fi?
