Storyline

focused, compact and cleverly written
8 February 2014 | by mjfhhhSee all my reviews

Seemingly unrelated people wake up on a plane. Very soon they discover that US is under attack. When a dead body is discovered paranoia kicks in. Could these random people work together to survive? And why were they taken on the first place?

The market these days is flooded with low budget horror movies and most of them have nothing on offer but cheap thrills and weak CGI. CHARIOT is not one of those films. It is focused, compact and cleverly written. You can start watching it out of curiosity and will stay with it until the credits' roll. It has some descent acting and characters you genuinely care about. On the negative side - it is hard to finish the movie like this. The writers put themselves into a corner because every possible ending would ruin the story told so far. So they have chosen the only option available. It is frustrating in a way, but a satisfying one all the same.

It is interesting to see how little money may be required to tell a good story. With the similar premise Liam Neeson movie NON-STOP hitting theaters soon it is interesting to see if the big budget flick can pull a better rabbit out of the same hat!
