simply wow.
30 January 2014 | by (New York City, United States) – See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this film at a private screening last year in Times Square... All I can say is, make sure you witness this movie and most importantly watch it with the lights off and until the end.... It's a film that's part of a dying breed of movies that has powerful storytelling and tangible characters. It grips you right from the beginning and while it starts with a soft pace it spurs deeper into darkness quickly and takes you along for a gripping ride. The acting from everyone and especially the lead Russ Russo left me holding my breath at times, plus it's always nice to see Doug E. Doug from Cool Runnings playing someone completely opposite of his usual character and killing it. Overall I gave it a 10 here because of what happened at the end of the screening.

P.S. I found out that the director was 21 at the time of filming and this was his first feature film... I wanted to crap myself. The fact that this is a directorial debut by a phenomenal filmmaker who has likely 70 more years of storytelling in him left should be the sole reason you stop reading, hit play now and enjoy the drama.
