Although I missed this timeless masterpiece in first run and was only able to catch it on video, I was blown away by craftsmanship that went into every aspect of this film. From the inspired acting to the startlingly realistic special effects, this movie had me riveted to my seat from opening to closing credits. Under the guidance of Jeb Wilson this film combined striking cinematography with a score that stays with you right to the closing rock anthem written by Adam Waite. If you don't find this one at your local video store, pack up the kids and all your stuff into a U-Haul and get to a town where you CAN find it in the video store, because it is worth moving just to see this film.
This film is an incredibly artful masterpiece of cinematics. I have followed the long, graceful, classy career of cinematographer Ben Gamble ever since I knew him back in Grove City, Ohio. We all used to love Ben's movies. We used to say, "If it's a Gamble, you don't have to gamble!" Ha ha! This is just another one of his wonderful pictures, but I have to say I have always admired his strong hands (on a camcorder) and his deep, soul-searching eyes (when he's framing a good scene). I'd also like to commend Ben for his role as "that one Russian guy." That was totally great.
There is only one movie within living memory than is visually more appealing than OC2. I can't think of it. OC2 is that good. The story (linking Russians and Irish terrorists) was a stroke of genius. The scoring was brilliant and was composed by up and coming Adam Waite. This man has a future in movies. The rest of the cast delivers inspired performances and the camera work can only be compared to Cool Hand Luke or Out of Courage 1. Remember folks, "Kick Ass on your first date!"
A lot of people gave their heart and soul to this project. The goal of the film was to create something to stand for all ages as a true testament to hard work, grueling hours, and unbelievable feats of teamwork. Upon viewing the final product I'm sure each and every viewer will not find it hard to see the incredible amalgam of talents that collaborated on this project. The hope is that it will serve as a benchmark for student films for years to come as an example of how film can be used to unify an entire university, an entire country, and an entire planet. Ladies and gentleman I say with great pride... THIS FILM KICKS ASS!
While it is odd that it's listed in the IMDB, this student film does deserve some notice. There is an obvious influence by feature films, so it's not too original, but the dedication by the filmmakers certainly shows through. It's unlikely, however, than anyone will see this film.
Although a smaller and lesser known film, "Out of Courage 2", or "OC2: Out for Vengeance", is a true masterpiece of action, and suspense. The non-stop pacing of the film gives it an energy that pulses on the screen. The performances are all top-notch, and the quality production makes it a contender for all sorts of awards. If you haven't seen this one, check it out. "Kick ass on your first date!"
