Shhh!
4 September 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

With an effective opening, we find ourselves in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, with soldiers alert for any hint of the enemy. What is the actual conflict, what countries are they from, and is that really Cillian Murphy? In the end, the answers do not make a difference(albeit with that last one, you can find out), because we're so drawn in, and there's no sense of sides taken.

With a running time of 6 and a half minutes(or 7 if you include end credits), it's impressive that this gets so far, and doesn't feel like it's rushing to get there. The atmosphere is rich, effectively built and maintained. Aiding it are great FX, distant shots that increase the scope, and impressive production design.

Everything in this feels real, worn. The acting is convincing. Character development is smooth - with subtle hints, we realize who these people are, and it pays off so quickly that you don't even have time to consciously note that something was setup. This feels like part of a bigger story, leaving us wanting more - without us finding it incomplete.

There is a lot of disturbing content and some brutal bloody violence in this. I recommend this to any fan of sci-fi and anti-war fiction. 7/10
