Project X has no plot. None. Project X has no name actors at all. Project X only has one star and that is "The Party." And that's what saves the film.
People are going to be divided on this film. Some could pass it off as a high school fantastical wet dream that amounts to nothing at all but 1 hour and 28 minutes of people getting drunk. Others will find pure entertainment in Project X and go in wanting to see people getting fucked up and get into crazy situations. I fall in the latter.
I have to applaud the film for using the "found footage" filming technique to good use. Unlike Chronicle, the filming was a tad bit more believable (except when it started catching private moments) and it really helped bring that serial feeling which made you feel like you were invited V.I.P.
One of the things I can say against the film is the storyline between the main character, Thomas, and his hot female best friend. It felt like a forced storyline that the filmmakers felt needed to be put into the film to have some sort of a plot. They were trying to develop the romance between the 2 people and the whole time I was thinking, Why? There's a huge party going on and we have to take 10 minutes to worry about these two irrelevant characters? I can understand what they were trying to do, but for me, it fell flat.
This film is a trip. Not the best film of the year but def. the most entertaining.
This is Corey Delaney. Project X is loosely based on a party he threw in 2008 where he invited 500 people. As you can see he's a dick.
