In a future America, citizens have finally remembered that the reason they are allowed to bear arms is to be able to take them up against those that would seek to oppress them or rob them of their liberty. As a result mass uprisings have begun and the Government has responded in kind. Any sort of rebellion, whether it be with arms or information, is struck down and it is one such striking that we see as we join a journalist held in prison, tortured and ultimately being processed for state execution.

Muscular editing.
20 April 2014 | by (New York, London and LA) – See all my reviews

The Exit Room introduces us to Joseph, incarcerated in the not so distant future at a government run facility. What kind of government we don't know and are never told as Todd Wiseman throws us into the deep end within the minute when Joseph is mercilessly herded out of a cell and viciously chained far, interesting. However, the story does not kick in here instead as the film continues we are taken through a run of the mill sequence with a couple of added elements for shock value but not story value. The lack of a story hurts this film and makes for a unsatisfactory ending. Christopher Abbot is certainly watch-able and has a cinematic presence however is let down by the material. What makes much of it worth watching is the editing, which is muscular and in parts clever even though there are a couple of points where the edit is unable sell the viewer on his/her suspension of disbelief. It's a 6 out of 10 for me because of Abbot and the editing.
