The main problem here is Sam Neil's turn to madness because he lacks any build or pushing point to transform. This is sad since the concept here is exceptionally fun and the loose debates regarding reality and the extent of gods, particularly how a god is formed, are constructed well. Rather than transforming effectively as the reality of the world does however, Neil decides to yell and scream in nearly every scene and then colors his face with a black crayon. Thus, the special effects and altering reality, which aren't as exceptional as the ideas they boast, overshadow most everything including the weak acting.
