Great effects and visual focus. Perfect steam-punk display.
5 October 2010 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

This movie was a perfect example of a steam-punk sci-fi film. The background music was amazing. I was left setting on the edge of my seat, just waiting for what was next to come. I would like to see a full-length feature film come from this short. Eslinger Films filmed old west steam-punk as it was meant to be filmed. Nominated for several film festivals, this film is a film to be reckoned with. Several actors were filming for the first time, but did great jobs. Sometimes, great things come in small packages and this film is proof positive. Jeremey Snowden (Sheriff) made his debut in this film. He's a natural and hope to see more from him. Amanda Bailey was awesome as the mother of Jack, and Anastasia. Great Job Nickel Children.
