A good film with absolutely brilliant actors, this is sadly a really unknown movie.
8 April 2017 | by nzswannySee all my reviews

This film deserves a lot more publicity and praise than it has. A well paced, perfectly acted film that knows how to build up suspense and emotion, making it well worth your time and money. I wasn't expecting much starting the film, but I must say, this film has passed my small expectations and has crafted a really well-made film. Tom Hildreth, Maggie Elizabeth Jones and Ted Levine have all proved to be really good, underrated actors and I'm glad that they got to star in this film to show people their talent in acting. The acting was so good, that I think I'm going to watch out for the main casts future work.

The direction of this is superb. Ian McCrudden, a director I had never heard of until now, directed this film with talent, knowing what to do with his script and how to keep it stable. The film flows as one should, which is a very big achievement, because a lot of films sometimes lose that sort of smooth flow in films and feel a bit bumpy and jumpy on the way. Mr McCrudden knows how to capture the tone and theme of a film, and that is a very rare gift that cannot be made even by some of the greats, so I applaud him for that, and I cannot wait to watch some of his older work.

Now, these positive things I'm about to say are small things, but they are really important things to contribute to the experience of a film. This film has good sound and good camera quality, making the film feel non-low-budget. A lot of low-budget films have bad sound design and poor camera work, however this film , despite the small budget, triumphs and still succeeds in quality despite not being funded fifty million dollars. In fact, I'd say that the quality of this film's sound design and camera work is on par with modern blockbusters.

The music in this was a bit over-the-top (if you've read my other reviews, you'll know how much I hate this), however it didn't really bother me much in this film because of how well this film was handled. It ruined the experience a bit for sure, but barely, and I am actually a little surprised myself that I didn't despise the over-the-top music as much as I usually would of. So, there's a flaw and a pro.

The reason why I'm afraid I'll have to give this a 7/10 instead of an 8/10 is because of an unfortunate thing called cliché. There was a bit too much of that in this film, and because of those I felt myself occasionally twiddle my fingers in my seat. But otherwise, it's a good film that deserves a lot more publicity, and I give it a 7.2/10.
