Trivia

During the Police Station "escape scene", green smoke canisters were used to mimic gas bombs. The scene involved Police officers to run out from the smoked out building and open fire on the "escapees" The entire front of the building was glass windows with one glass door. The smoke was so dense that during the take the first "Police Officer" ran directly into the glass windows mistaking it for the door. He was so disoriented that when he finally emerged he did not know which direction to face. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits are in reverse to the usual direction. i.e. they scroll from top of the screen down not up from the bottom of the screen. See more »

A surprisingly good little thriller
6 July 2015 | by (Nelson, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Two thing's come to mind with the movie '88'. Quentin Tarantino and 'Memento'. Director April Mullen has done her best to show us what it would have been like if Tarantino had made 'Memento', instead of Christopher Nolan. The result? Not all that bad. The film doesn't reach the intellectual capacities of 'Memento', but focuses more on the style. And while it doesn't come off in every scene, the overall result is pretty good.

The interweaving time lines are handled well. Thing's can get very confusing in these types of films but Mullen does a good job of keeping things easy enough to follow along with. Katharine Isabelle was excellent in the lead role, particularly in the flashback storyline. The rest of the cast were admittedly not great (Ironside and Lloyd were passable) but that is forgivable in a low-budget film like this. While the film never reaches anywhere near the potential a Tarantino or Nolan is capable of, it still isn't half bad. Worth giving a chance.
