Competent kidnap drama on a minuscule budget

A film maker who succeeds in holding our attention firmly for the entire length of his movie and causing us to empathize with the characters, is doing something right. If he's done this on a clearly minuscule budget, all the more credit is deserved..

Richard Shepherd's does all this with "Mercy". While it's not unlike many other kidnap dramas, it's executed with a sure hand and nicely played by all. John Rubinstein, not usually a lead actor, does very well in the part.

Sam Rockwell is (yet again!) an incompetent small time criminal and all the other supporting parts are well portrayed.

While extremely competent, ultimately there is not enough here to get too excited about, but Shepherd is a writer/director to watch out for.
