Excellent short that ended too soon
13 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastic short from beginning to end. The characters played well off of one another and had many great one-liners. I don't think you could have put together a better group of actors for this film. The comedic aspect was not over-the-top and some of the funniest moments came from the subtleties. The music was great and kept the film moving along and the scene setup and cinematography were top notch. My biggest problem with this film was that it seemed like the pacing was a little fast but I think this was due to the time restraints and the entertaining nature of the film. It definitely left me wanting more and I am hoping there is a Sudden Death! feature on the horizon.
