Based on the chilling true story of 'Kick' a Canadian who operated as a sniper for the CIA in Vietnam, and his personal post-war mission to expose the Canadian government's covert involvement in the war, and the 40,000 Canadians who secretly served there. Written by
A riveting film giving the viewer an experience of being a Canadian Viet Nam Vet - a chilling adventure and expose!
SPOOK offers an absorbing, chilling, and suspenseful story line with powerful acting, particularly by Barry Levy but well supported by other character actors. Although filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, the film used well spaced flashbacks to give the experience of the Viet Nam jungle as well as historical memories of the various characters. Interspersed with a very cryptic script, these flashbacks added to the suspenseful telling of the story and in some instances were illustrated with shocking, haunting, almost mystical visual effects. Watching this film was like watching jigsaw puzzle pieces slowly evolve into a picture that had been left off the cover of the box. I was riveted to the screen until the credits rolled. SPOOK presented new & shocking information revealing Canada's role in Viet Nam. I left with a changed opinion and a new slant on the Vietnam war. I recommend this to any conscious thinking adult with an open mind.
