Clever little effects-driven fan film
18 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A woman wakes up in a locked room with no way out and no contact with anyone. However, the discovery of a very odd gun changes that situation dramatically.

Fans of the Portal video games will not need to be told too much more about the plot to know what this "odd gun" is as this fan film takes the mechanics of the game and makes it into an escape attempt that is exciting and cleverly done. Beyond that there isn't really a plot so much as an idea and a dramatic punch line at the end. The effects are very good whether it be the realism of the gun, the editing of the portals or moving the character through them. At 5 minutes long it fills the time easily even if there is a lot of build-up before we get into the action. The ending of the film is clever and made for a punchy way to close.

The only cast of note is Danielle Rayne who does really well. Despite not saying a word, she has the physical presence to hold the attention while in her cell and also pull off the action later. Of course the lack of other speaking characters from the game is a little bit disappointing at first, but the more dramatic film would probably not have suited the more comedic input. Overall, No Escape is a great little short film that is driven by effects and atmosphere; it will of course play best to those that love the games and bring this with them to the film because the lack of story-telling does mean you need to know the scenario before you start.
