Storyline

On their way back from a conference, two medical school friends bump into a college cheerleaders contest in Oregon. Party animal Patrick Fisher insists on going until his buddy concedes to 'one beer', but dutiful Steve Hillman is the one who gets seduced by local Amber. Alas it's a trap; he gets robbed and her lover, Bo Cooper, beats him up and abuses him. Disgusted with himself Bo shoots himself - his father is the local sheriff. He has a terrible corrupt hold over the town and sets the boys up as wanted 'killers'. Only Steve's girlfriend and local paranoid civil rights-obsessed loner Olie Parks will still help them to contact the already suspicious FBI. Written by KGF Vissers

31 May 2004 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Pressure is hugely enjoyable. This film is entertaining and thrilling as the pace is relentless and after 90 minutes you are sorry that it is over. Great direction, good editing and timing, great dialogues, 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree fun and black humour. Actors who obviously had a lot of fun during the production. Some comments criticized the stereotyping of characters, but hey that's the point: the film rides on clichés. I gave it a 10/10 because it is an Indy which is so much better than most blockbusters. Of course it's not the best film ever, the story is not in the nobel price league, but that doesn't matter, it's not meant to be. I only was sorry that the German distribution DVD did not include "making of" and other extras.
