Impressive and Smart Bank Heist Film From a First Time Director
24 August 2018 | by et_moiSee all my reviews

Where to begin?!? The Midnighters immediately grabs you from the first sounds of the opening credits against a black screen and doesn't let go until the totally shocker twist of an ending! Julian Fort is a first time feature filmmaker, but you wouldn't know it from the impressive job he did directing veteran actors. The performances are stellar, it's cool to see old character actor Leon Russom get his moment in the limelight as a wounded and sensitive but still badass old school bank robber try to navigate the modern world. The writing is stellar and moves the story along at a quick pace. The cinematography is gorgeous, the camera work is not showy and is a quiet observer rather than the ever popular (and annoying) over the top zooms, pans and edits that are done as a cheap trick and nothing more. If you like bank heist movies, take a chance on this little ambitious film. Their budget may have been tiny, but their heart is huge and it shows in the final product. I'm super impressed. Julian Fort has a future ahead of him that shows a lot of promise and I look forward to seeing more from this writer/director!!!
