I pledge...
3 January 2013 | by (nyc) – See all my reviews

This is a small budget independent film that delivers a meaningful storyline and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. The plot is believable and the main characters, while simple, have an interesting back-story.

The soundtrack is especially solid and helps the film to build intensity. Additionally, it seems the director chose a monochromatic color/hue which gives the film a unique sense of reality (void of lots of distracting colors...not sure how else to explain it).

If you are interested in watching films with substance and need a change from the big Hollywood blockbusters, I suggest giving Allegiance a try.
