Predictable but with some qualities
6 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I accidentally watched this little flick. It deserves a little higher rating, so I gave 6 stars. Though there is little to nothing revealed about the background of the escaped prisoners (psychopaths ? Hannibal Lecters even ?), it is pretty foreseeable what happens.

I'll make it short for once, pros are: Good camera, proper score, decent directing, reasonable cut, OK acting, has atmosphere. No Zombies (quite often in debuts). Cons are: Predictable, weak book, weak plot, weak dialogs, no character development, some hasty scene management (I saw parts of equipment in one scene), too long and too often women screaming or crying in desperate fear (I found that especially annoying).

After about 15 minutes you know how the movie will continue. It manages (with some quality) you to keep at it, but in the end you are left disappointed. That often occurs with movies where the author is the director too. It's a matter of being blind in one eye about the flaws in your writing, even if you are a good director - it seems that Mr. Abell is one.

Neveretheless the movie is not 4-stars bad. It definitely has some substance, mostly by saying some things not, or saying them allusively, which is quite common in the Indy scene. For that, in turn, it's a simple standard pattern we've seen a fifty times.
