Storyline

MATT and ANNA are a young couple living in London. Anna is starting her career and knows what she wants, whilst Matt is still struggling to find his purpose in life. On the surface they are happy but tensions are beginning to mount. Then one morning masked thugs break into the flat and kidnap Anna before assaulting Matt, locking him into a mysterious vest and leaving him a mobile phone. Matt is told the vest contains a package which he must deliver by following instructions issued to him via the mobile phone. If he fails, tries to seek help, or deviates from their instructions, they will kill Anna. Over the course of one day Matt has to make his way across London in a desperate bid to save his girlfriend as a host of characters attempt to derail him from his mission.

6-7/10 The Game (1997) meets Run Lola Run (1998) etc
17 September 2016 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

In short: This is "The Game (1997)" adapted to the society we live in now (1984) with some extra (read; unnecessary) layers that makes it feel a little as inception. It tries to be several things, and it does quite a decent job at it. This is not a bad movie and for me it is a strong 6.

In long: The lighting is good, the editing is alright and you can't fault the soundscore and it only misses a binding soundtrack and using one would negate the feel of reality of the movie (though urgency can be expressed with music quite well - Run Lola Run 1998, which is likely to be another movie that has inspired this movie).

The downside is that it has a somewhat weak ending (where the several layers come in and a badly hid undertone about who's surveilling the ones doing the surveillance in the first place) - which is out of place even though it is in line with the message - question what the reality is and how you affect it).

Pro's • Cast (unknown which is in line with the plot line) • Action sequences (and not forcing it on the movie every time possible) • Rationality is alright and better depicting the notion of what manipulation of actions has the potential to do.

Con's • Messy ending • Could build tension better • Acting performances aren't top notch ALL the time (which is important in building tension and urgency)

End notes: Not top notch but overall a solid watch.
