It's 1993. Seven years after it happened. But Steven Down can't let it go. He's a paranoid, troubled, mess of a man. A U.S. Army vet searching for the truth. The truth about a person he believes tortured him years earlier in the jungles of Nicaragua. But is this the man? Or is Down just another paranoid bloodbath waiting to happen? Only time will tell... and, maybe a few bullets. Written by
In 1986, the U.S. Marine Steven Down (Matthew Tompkins) is assigned to stay in a farm in Nicaragua as observer of the contras. One day, a paramilitary group invades the land and executes everybody but Steven, who is tortured by a cruel military.
Seven years later, Steven is a troubled and paranoid man, separated from his wife Angela (Natalie Raitano) that lives with their only daughter and with one only friend, Dylan (Oliver Tull). Steven is invited to participate in the security team of the powerful executive of the Maya Corporation, Oscar Peres (Julio Cedillo), in a boat trip with his bodyguard Rachel (Sheree J. Wilson). When Steven sees Oscar Peres, he is sure that he is his torturer. But is he correct or is it paranoia?
"Killing Down" is a low-budget action movie with a predictable story and nothing special. The annoying music score is awful and the budget restraint makes the movie very poor. Steven Down misses basically all his shoots and it is funny when he breaks in Maya Corporation his preference for a crossbow. The conclusion is corny. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "A Hora da Vingança" ("The Time for Revenge")
