Violent little Canadian indie
18 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Avery Paul (Glen Gould) is a street fighter and an ex-con. One day, he's approach by Ava. She hires him to abduct drug-addicted Jan (Amanda Crew) for $20k from her criminal gang and deliver her back to her family. When he takes her, he demands more money but then there is more to her story.

This is definitely a small Canadian indie with the prerequisite lack of budget. That's not that big of a deal. It actually works well with the gritty drug scene. Glen Gould is not a notable name nor does he have a big screen presence. However he does have a little bit of Bronson in him, and this has a bit of that grimy low-life Death Wish vibe. Then the movie gets more violent after the turn. That's when a more experienced director could get better looking shots. Michael Melski doesn't have the skills yet or the style. However there is an edginess to this low budget indie.
