In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Follows the plight of a young beauty as she flees from a mysterious pursuer through the halls of an abandoned building. As she is trapped at a dead end inside of a freight elevator, all hope seems lost until fate places two rescuers in the pursuer's path. A fight ensues, but who will win? And is our damsel in distress any safer if the other guys win? The Chase is the result of a self-imposed challenge by the filmmakers to produce a silent, yet compelling martial-arts driven story in an enclosed environment - a live-action Anime. Using the same location and scenario, a film version was shot by film purist Robert Banks for the purpose of comparison between style and medium. Written by
Like an amateur version of THE MATRIX and TERMINATOR
This film was recently posted on IMDb as in the United States you can now view some films, TV shows and shorts. Due to licensing issues, I have no idea when or if it will be available elsewhere.
This film is odd, because in many ways it looks very, very amateurish. However, at other times (particularly when you see how they did everything in the credits), it is rather exciting to watch. The film is much like a Terminator or Matrix film but the problem is that there really is no plot to speak of--just lots and lots of stunts with no context for what is occurring. Hopefully in subsequent films they'll work all this out and focus more on the narrative, as a film can't just be special effects and fighting.
