Outstanding unexpected thriller
31 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

3 Holes and a Smoking Gun was outstanding. Not only did all of the actors give a strong performance but the cinematic techniques used in this film were done really well. This film could easily pass as a high budget film. I applaud the crew and actors for their time and dedication into making this film so great.

The storyline was spectacular. There are a lot of films out there that are similar to one another but, I can honestly say I have never seen anything quite like this. The writer carefully thought out each event, leading to the next. The creativity put into this film is above and beyond.

I highly recommend seeing this film, whether you are in the mood to feel inspired or if you are a filmmaker yourself.
