Rebecca is a disgraced scientists carrying out illegal experiments to confirm the existence and begin travel between parallel universes.She accidentally cracks the problem. Her counterparts in neighboring universes are also working on the same problem but they but they have their own agendas and things get out of hand.Written by
Seduced by the cover art showing the lead female brandishing a shotgun, one could be fooled into thinking this would be about a British 'Nikita' laying waste to hordes of foes on her way to killing three targets. Unfortunately, 'Triple Hit' turned out to be a dull sci-fi tale about three female scientists (all played by the same actress Abigail Tarttelin) in three alternate universes and the incidents they encounter as they travel from one to another. The main problem as the previous reviewer had noted is the lead role would have been demanding, even for skilled actress. Consequently with the lead in the hands of the uncharismatic and utterly unconvincing Abigail Tarttelin, the film falls flat before it even really gets started. According to her IMDb page, Ms Tarttelin may have done very well in her school examinations, but on this showing she must have got an 'F' for drama! The other actors in the movie are also cursed with the same deadpan wooden delivery of their lines, so despite the decent visual effects, 'Triple Hit' feels like a bad episode of 'Dr Who' without the Doctor. What really does annoy is the praise that has been heaped on this rather undistinguished movie on several British based sci-fi sites. It is good to promote British movies, but trying to pass off such a poor film as one worthy of attention does the industry no favours. The director does show promise, but he and his screenwriters need to take note that no amount of plot twists and pseudo-scientific claptrap will hide a weak story and uninspired acting.
