Pawn is a low budget crime thriller set in a diner which is robbed. But
the robbers have bitten off a little bit more than they can chew and
events quickly spiral out of control as it turns out the diner they
have robbed is owned by a mafia guy.
That's all I can tell you without spoiling the plot and that's the best
way to go into this movie - knowing as little as possible.
The opening sequence sets the movie up nicely for what later unfolds to
be a highly entertaining watch full of deception, conspiracy and twists
aplenty. It's tense and keeps you hooked right through until the
The best part of this film is the fact that just when you think you're
getting to grips with what's happening, you're hit with another twist.
The cast is strong with quite a few recognizable faces putting in good
performances to contribute to a solid and well constructed script. The
majority of the movie takes place inside the diner but there is enough
going on within those walls to mask this fact.
Overall, I enjoyed this film. I went in knowing very little and came
out very impressed. I was entertained from start to finish which is all
you can really ask for.
Pawn will not win any awards, but if a good entertaining thriller is
your thing then you will not be disappointed 3.5/5
