Set entirely in one location, the film follows four strangers who become trapped in the elevator of St. Julian-a decrepit, inner-city building. An assassin, a religious zealot, a mother, and a thief...just moments after being confined, it becomes clear that one of them is mortally wounded. As the minutes tick by, a battle for survival ensues where each of them is forced to examine their sordid ties to St. Julian-the building, as well as the legacy of the religious figure. Written by
I suppose you don't get much for $100,000 in the movie business, but I'm sure I could do better than this. The writing is very weak, the acting abysmal - bordering on funny - and there is no tension or mystery to keep you hooked.
If you're going to shoot an entire movie in an elevator then you need a lot more than is on offer here. One has to wonder why they bothered making it, or indeed how anybody was persuaded to finance it.
There are hundreds of thousands of films and most have something more to offer. Unless you happen to be related to one of the 'sctors' (I use the term loosely) I really wouldn't waste your time on this one.
