Storyline

Two Down is the first theatrical feature from Fizz and Ginger Films, whom Screen International (UK), picked for their 'Stars of Tomorrow' edition in 2013. Set in modern day London, Two Down is nevertheless inspired by films of the 1970's, which gives this clever little thriller an interesting spin in the look, the dialogue and the sound. After surviving an explosion in Iraq, Mr. Thomas leaves the infuriating desk job the army had created for him and enters the underground world of the contract killer. His brother, Sam, had been caught selling on army secrets to the highest bidder and is now working for the illusive Harry Montagu. They use Mr. Thomas as a very effective way of eliminating problems they encounter in their business. That is until Mr. Thomas begins to question whom these problems are that he is removing, and why they deserve this fate. We start the film with Mr. Thomas following a target, a young woman. All is not as it seems as she manages to fight him off long enough ... Written by Fizz and Ginger Films

Excellent Piece of Filmmaking
1 March 2016 | by michaellyntonSee all my reviews

I was part of a jury for a film festival and this film came to us from the U.K a while ago and I was thrilled to watch it. As a jury member you have to watch a lot of films. A lot of films. Most which are OK, but a lot which are not so OK. So when something like this comes along, low budget debut feature, it restores my faith in emerging filmmakers.

The film is 'about' a hit-man who has been injured on a job and makes for a safe house only to find a young woman now living there. She's no damsel in distress, she can look after herself and from the off you wonder if there is something else going on with her. They are then joined by a take out guy, and they spend the evening together getting to know the hit-man and trying to figure out why the job went wrong. I can't say much about the story without giving away huge spoilers as the way the film is done any mention of what's or who's or why's will spoil it for you and that is certainly something I don't want.

The script is excellent, slick, intelligent, funny and really gives the brilliant actors something to work with. It is very well crafted by the director and the storytelling is clear, clever and accomplished without bringing too much attention to itself like so many films do these days. The story and characters are the thing here and he has done everything to make sure it stays that way. A true director.

I read somewhere for the festival that the whole film was shot in 12 days. Once you see the result you will agree with me that that is extraordinary. Lots of indie films are shot quickly due to lack of budget, but they don't come out looking like this.

It is a huge feat the team have pulled off and I urge everyone to see it if they can. Yes it has its flaws, all films do, and I'm sure with more time and money they would have been able to smooth them over, but if this is what is coming out of the UK after a 12 day shoot, we should start taking notice.
