Great Suspense Thriller!
23 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie, but enjoyed the inter-dispersing of comic relief and a totally unexpected ending. Don't let your friends tell you the ending. The acting is very professional and fast paced. I am so impressed that it was accepted into the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and await the results. The production company, Uptone Pictures, has also released other must-see movies, "Destiny Road" and "A Long Way Off", among others. They are currently working on a movie about two Civil War Union soldiers' escape from a Confederate prison camp, and the help they received from slaves to find their way back to Union lines. Look for the release of this movie, "Union Bound", in 2015.
