"Normal," middle-class Dan Swift watches his life fall apart in less than a month.
10 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This was an excellent film. Great work by new writer/director Jesse Bean. The film provides provocative insight into the unexplainable violence that seems to appear out of nowhere. Bean's directing and acting accurately represent the sometimes surreal mind of Dan Swift, a man who initially appears to have the perfect life. Although "Under the Gun" shares territory with the Michael Douglas film, "Falling Down," Bean's film is faster paced and more engaging. The film makes a powerful statement on the unforgiving world of business, where one mistake can totally destroy a life. "Under the Gun" has a powerful impact.

I'd recommend this film for employers who need a little sensitivity.
