Very innovative storytelling technique.
2 March 2014 | by jason-938-634249See all my reviews

Just saw it in the theater last night. I was impressed that they managed to tell such a complex story on such a tiny budget. The set was limited to just two locations. The special effects were all in your head with the cameras cutting away at just the right moment to avoid the high cost of gunshots and explosions. As the climax approached, I realized they were doing this all with just actors, writers and cameras, so I was anxious to see how they were going to pull off the epic battle scene. Without giving away any spoilers, I have to say I was impressed by the way they did it. Theater of the mind in the theater! Bravo to these nascent filmmakers! I can't wait to see what they do with a multimillion-dollar budget.
