Storyline

Growing up in the shadow of Sin City Alex Mackendrick lives a pretty ordinary life devoid of excitement. Alex has never had the power to stand up for himself. Since the death of his mother, he has been floating through life letting people take advantage of him, clinging to the hope that one day he will find his calling in the world. Lately he has been seeking that calling in the way of church with his mentor Father Bruce. He desperately wants to do something great and he knows stocking the shelves at the local warehouse store is not it. Written by Anonymous

Deadbeat film
21 May 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

This is a zero-budget sci-fi thriller about a put-upon kid who comes into possession of a powerful glove that gives him the power of telekinesis. By utilising this he is able to go through his life and take revenge on everybody who's been oppressing him in his mundane existence.

This is an el cheapo production, shot in Las Vegas and with a no-name cast and crew. The plot bears a few superficial similarities to previous 'glove' themed films (like THE GLOVE) and stories I've read, but the terrible execution means that it's a near-unwatchable piece of entertainment. Yep, you guessed it: non-existent characterisation, bad acting, poor production values.

This boring production is filled with small talk and not much else. There's very little in the way of action staging or indeed incident so the budget for this independent film must have been very low indeed. The resultant film is one which no movie-goer in his right mind could enjoy.
