Good Aussie crime thriller with a twist.
2 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was a little cautious about John Soto's new film The Reckoning. I think the 'found footage' genre is over saturated. However, The Reckoning doesn't quite play out that way, in fact it's an intriguing mix of found footage and the police procedural. I feel that there is enough of a twist on the genres that it actually becomes quite engaging.

The story develops nicely, and the two arcs of characters are molded together well. I think that Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Alex Williams, playing the two runaway teens, really shone in this film. That's not to say Jonathan LaPaglia and Viva Bianca were bad, they were good as their roles, but Lawrence and Williams were a driving force in the film.

I feel like The Reckoning is a great Aussie film, I took particular joy in seeing Perth on the big screen, and after watching it I really want to see Soto's other films Crush and Needle.
