Storyline

Dressed in his business attire and carrying an expensive briefcase, a marketing executive named Murray is taking a shortcut through an urban park in Toronto. Lost in a secluded area of the park, he gets into an altercation with a teen-aged punk, who unknown to Murray is only one of five - four guys and a girl - in a gang. Running to get away from the gang, Murray has the idea that he will climb up a large tree to hide out until the punks leave. Unfortunately for Murray, they find him in the tree. Initially, Murray believes he has no other alternative but to do what they say. But Murray and the punks soon realize that Murray has some leverage being where he is. This altercation soon becomes a standoff and a test of wills to see who can outlast the other, the standoff which includes both physical and emotional torment on both sides, the latter as each learns more about the other.

Murray: You think you're in charge? You think you're just gonna walk away? Well, fuck you, Sharkly! How long before someone comes through here, huh? I mean, we're not on a desert island, right? I say dawn, seven a.m. at the latest, there'll be joggers. It's a park. It's a public fucking park! I'm gonna hunt you down, you little psycho. You and your whole Manson family: Kelly, Dwayne, K fucking C! Oh yeah. I haven't just been sitting up here, jerking off. How long do you think it's gonna take the police...

8/10 Hidden gem. Solid acting by leads, moves well, fair script.
10 November 2004 | by yak-yakSee all my reviews

This is really one of those hidden gems of a movie. The plot is so simple: An executive type gets trapped in a tree by a group of young hoods. It's all psychological stuff, virtually zero dollars spent on set design and such, because it's just a park. The acting by all of the main characters is quite solid, especially that of the group leader. A bit of excess drama at one point with scary people doing scary things, but it wasn't too overdone. They got the point across anyway.

This is really worth renting. It's not action-packed, but it's going to keep you watching until it's over.

8/10
