Storyline

Using charts and medical history, actuary Wes Riemann can statistically predict how many years someone has to live. But it's only a prediction. When he discovers the life insurance firm he works for has been canceling policies weeks, sometimes days before the policy holder dies in order to avoid costly payouts, he comes to grip with the impossible - that somehow, they know the exact date when someone will die. In order to prevent the firm from destroying anymore lives, including his own, Wes will risk it all to discover an unbelievable secret.

Engaging Thriller
30 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was privileged to attend a recent screening of Assumption of Risk and throughly enjoyed it! I was completely engaged in the story line and keeping up with its twists and turns all the way from first scene to the end. The plot is an interesting mix of suspense, science fiction and thriller. Wade Balance did a great job writing the screen play. The cast Is convincing and believable. Mark Kochanowicz cleverly directed the story on a very limited budget, with few resources. The only downside is a few of the transitions were abrupt and therefore seemed a little choppy.

Wade and Mark make a great team. I look forward to seeing more movies by them in the future.
