Storyline

For reasons unknown, a young man, tied, gagged and beaten to death, finds himself trapped in a dark and confined space. As the doomed man slowly regains consciousness, in a desperate attempt to escape, he summons up his remaining strength to break free, only to realise that he is inside a speeding car's trunk, on a rugged stretch of road. His name is Lucky. Is this a euphemism or is he really going to get out of this mess? Written by Nick Riganas

Not really worth waiting for the punchline...
1 July 2006 | by Different_VoicesSee all my reviews

LUCKY came third in the Sony Tropfest film competition a few years ago - quite undeservedly so.

Although the film was well made it was ultimately rather pointless. The plot went nowhere - basically 'Lucky', the film's protagonist, tries to escape a moving car. And that's it. The whole storyline.

Need I say more?

It's a shame to think what Lucky's success means in the greater shape of things. Tropfest clearly chose this film for its technical capabilities and stunts as opposed to real story-telling.

That alone seems to go against everything the festival stands for.
