Tense and gripping short thriller
20 February 2011 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

As a last request, a hit-man (a smooth and convincing performance by Andrew Roth) agrees to have lunch in a restaurant with his intended target (finely played with edgy intensity by Roberto Lombardi). However, things aren't as cut and dried as they might seem as both guys have a lot more at stake than meets the eye. Writer/director Chris R. Notarile ably milks plenty of nerve-wracking suspense from the clever and absorbing story and really keeps the viewers on their toes as said story unfolds towards a shattering and unexpected conclusion which packs one hell of a powerful punch. Roth and Lombardi both effortlessly carry the picture with their top-notch work in the lead roles, Liana Werner-Grey does well as sunny waitress Jenny, and Notarile movie regular Kim Santiago briefly pops up as a lady cop. Kudos are also in order for Notarile's polished cinematography and spot-on rattling score. However, it's the crafty way Notarile presents the emotional consequences of both men's actions that gives this short an extra potent and resonant sting (the target's casual acceptance of his possible dismal fate in particular is genuinely chilling). A very strong and impressive nail-biter.
