Superb Non-Hollywood Filmmaking
25 December 2012 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

It's hard to say why I liked this story so much. The Isaiah Washington's understated but natural performance really stood out for me. Perhaps some elements in editing this story fall short of the Hollywood quick-fix treatment, but they made this the kind of movie that draws you in without throwing everything at you point-blank so you won't miss it.

I am very gratified that the ending was not slick, however, the music cues, I think, were a little cheesy and rather made this too sensational for such a poignant ending. I know the music tried to make the point of that being a climactic ending, somehow, it is probably the only thing that missed the mark for me in this beautiful effort.

I congratulate everyone involved in putting this story out, especially with so much crap being spewed out by filmmakers these days.

I recommend this to any fan of science fiction who appreciates the out of the ordinary development of a story, and an abduction story that might have been produced by Hollywood types that like to give us slick and vapid movies in the guise of entertainment-in-a-bottle.
