One of the most realistically conceived post 9/11 disaster flicks shot to date
Quite the solid independent disaster flick, Right at Your Door is a stellar example of making a limited budget work in your favor by effecting us more with two fine actor's insinuations then with huge, mass-extras-driven scenes. Chris Gorak, who has been involved behind the scenes with some modern day classics such as Fight Club and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, makes an impressively tense debut at the helm with this fast-paced, very realistic terrorism scenario executed over Los Angeles one day.
From the outset Gorak infuses his survival drama with a tremendously brisk pace, highlighting the confusing and paralyzing fear which would engulf nearly everyone presented with the same scenario. Many parallels can obviously be made to the September 11th attacks as well as Gorak's not-so-subtle criticism of government rescue operations ala Katrina, but everything seems exploited in just the right way as to make the fear actually feel viable as we watch from the safety of our chairs.
The third act does wind things down possibly a little too slowly compared to the full-throttle assault that was the first thirty minutes, although despite lapses in logic now and then I felt the movie represented an honest scenario the best it could up until a poetic, but underdeveloped and gimmicky ending.
