Nice setup and satisfying delivery
17 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A young couple are walking through the night streets having a playful argument about the realism of the movie they just watched. A trio of street thugs are also walking the same streets, one of them quoting from Szu Tzu's Art of War as he goes, excited about the meaning of the passages in relation to their low level criminal activities. The two groups will meet.

This is a simple little film which does a good job of setting up a dramatic and tense situation and then paying it off really well. The couple are pretty nice and you will like them while at the same time the criminal group do well to have banter between them but also have a lot of menace so we are pretty sure what is going to happen. When the two groups do meet it is suitably tense with a steady build and threat; Oeding (a stuntman by trade) gets the lighting just right in the street so it is well lit but still grays and steely blues so that it sets the mood.

The payoff comes off the tension well and makes for a satisfyingly brutal and well choreographed sequence which you will be invested in because of the time spent with either group at the top of the film. It is a basic film in regards what it does, but it does do it well. Bohen leads the short well, playing nerdy well at the start (but not over doing it) while he and Chiu have a nice chemistry which is important early on. Giannone, Luke and Ward also have a chemistry that made me feel like they were a real group and they do give out menace with their body and words. A nice short film from Oeding, not an amazing story but a nice setup and an even nicer delivery.
