Review: Condemned

Condemned moves with beats and tone that is accelerated to the max. It’s a film that hits the ground running, and thrusts its characters into an infested fight for their lives. It’s also a very uneven and character development-lite approach. We see our protagonists go through hell in a single location, but we never get to really know who those said characters really are.

When Maya (Dylan Penn) is in the middle of a massive argument between her verbally abusive parents, her boyfriend, Dante (Some Kind Of Hate star Ronen Rubinstein) has the answer: come stay with him. When Maya arrives at Dante’s place, she discovers that it’s a condemned building, and each room is inhabited with people who are off their rocker, to say the least.
