I'm not very good at reviewing so here's a quick rating from me. I was actually rather surprised at how good this short film was! The acting was great, the script was great and the whole picture was awesome! I loved the Indiana Jones-esque theme running throughout. One small nit-pick here, and I know it was only 20 minutes long, but I would liked to have seen more of the characters who were tied up from the beginning of the film- Bucky and the french bloke (I'm sorry, I don't remember his name), because they seemed really interesting and likable. Overall, an unexpectedly great short film from these students and I give the film a score of 8 out of 10.
