Quotes

Trip: So grab your gun shot car thief and hop in your stolen automobile and live happily ever after. Or you could just grab your wanted bank robber and hit the road. Either way, I don't think you're gonna get very far.

Sympathy is also a good example of how a low budget doesn't necessarily mean a bad movie.
15 January 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This was a really low-budget indie, with just 3 actors and one set - a motel room. But Sympathy is also a good example of how a low budget doesn't necessarily mean a bad movie.

I was quite surprised to like this movie, since it started off kinda shrieky annoying. It's about a guy who takes a girl hostage while on the lam from some bank robbery job, and who in turn gets also taken hostage when an escaped convict happens upon the both of them. Or so it began, before secrets unraveled and it turned out that nothing was as it seemed.

So the movie's kind of a psychological thriller, and the actors, though unknown, are all pretty good. I like how the characters were developed, and I thought them and the story pretty plausible too. And the ending's a doozy.
