A Triumph!

The Keyman is a triumph in independent film-making. It manages to keep your attention from start to finish without losing sight of the bigger picture.

The performances are top notch from the three main characters, with my special praise going to Adam Baldwin and Tom Wright, who really stand out.

The film never felt overly long because the pacing seems to have been timed in Switzerland!

Sure the film, like every other, has it flaws. The character that Ellen Locy plays maybe could have used something more and you feel that Tom Wright's Popeye may at any moment come out with "I ain't getting' on no plane fool!", but these things pale into the background when faced with the films question of what would happen to you if a similar tragedy had happened.

And, you know that every has that one scene that you'll remember it for. Well here it simply has to be Adam Baldwin's performance when we finally see what happened to his baby in flashback and his present day "redemption" if you will. Stunning.
