In the end when Robert carradine tries to escape from the underground garage in a car, we clearly see that the (stunt) driver is on the right side of the car in half of the shots, then when they show the closeup of carradine again he's back on the left or driver's side. See more »
Surprisingly Undramatic And Even A Bit Silly At Times
The basics seemed right. New York City gets hit with a huge power outage, and in the midst of it four very violent criminals escape from custody, get into a high rise apartment building and terrorize the tenants, all the while being pursued by a lone cop. It sounds like it should be a pretty decent actioner, but from the very beginning it just didn't seem to work very well. It began with a far too long introduction to what was happening, and when the "action" did start it just came in dribs and drabs, but there was nothing sustained to it. Then to an overall dull-ish feel, you have to add a few rather silly elements in the plot. Let's see. There's the woman who gets raped and is obviously traumatized by the experience but ends up within a few minutes as the cop's partner searching the building. Then, the cop is telling everyone he meets (including a couple of unaccompanied kids) to go to the lobby (but what if they meet up with the gang on the way?) but then tells an elderly couple to stay in their half burned and smoke-filled apartment after one of the bad guys turned pyromaniac. Does any of that make any sense? We were never told what happened to the man whose ventilator was turned off (presumably he died while his wife who was tied up watched, but that was never tied up) and then one of the bad guys turns on another because the latter one hits a kid - after everything else (murder, rape, arson) we suddenly get "you don't hit a kid" and two crooks end up killing each other over it? I also wasn't taken with the performances, which seemed pretty dry to me most of the way through. The movie also had a very low-budget feel most of the way through. Some good scenes of looting appeared throughout the movie as a reminder of the ugliness of human nature, because we know that really does happen in such circumstances, and the closing car chase through the underground parking lot was pretty decent. Aside from those points though there's not much to recommend this. 2/10
