Nice Try

Set in a post apocalyptic world,the parents of sisters Matti and Joslyn are murdered by an intruder in their home.Younger sister Matti finds 5 shotgun shells next to the body of her father.Picking up a shotgun from their loft,Matti and her sister set out to search for their Grandma's house.Along the way,Matti will find herself in situations where she will need to use the 5 shells in the title. Matti is hopeful that in finding Grandma's house,the world there will be a better place.Indeed she has dreams of walking the "Yellow Brick Road",hoping to find Grandma there.Many references are made to The Wizard Of Oz throughout this movie.

This is obviously a low budget flick.But it is also obvious that a real effort has been made to pull off a reasonable story with the money they had.

Good use is made of locations to give the viewer a real sense of a world fallen into decay,but the use of some of the music seemed a bit over the top for some of the situations.

The acting isn't great although a real stand out in this movie was Chad Brummett as shady character Frank.Everyone else is OK to mediocre but at least they made an effort.

I have stated in a review of a different movie that if you want to put yourself in front of a camera and entertain,at least make an effort,and here they did just that.And after all,these being actors I haven't seen or heard of before,you've gotta start somewhere right?

On the whole,this is a bleak and sometimes depressing movie to watch.But then maybe that's the point.Movies of this genre aren't really supposed to portray joy and happiness and all things bright and breezy.In that sense,this film hits the mark.

To sum up,there are better movies out there of this genre,but bear in mind the low budget constraints. This isn't the best of it's type,but it's very far from being the worst.Just don't expect anything particularly exciting. All in all.........good effort.
