My review for Union Bound
12 May 2016 | by arturodv1996See all my reviews

Two reasons why I went to go see this: one, my cousin Dane worked on the music, and two, I like history.

So what did I think? Time for the review! The story takes place during the Civil War. Two Union soldiers are captured by the Confederates. They are taken to a prison camp and escape shortly after. This is where I will leave off.

The story is based on a true event that was written by the main character, in his diary.

The characters are interesting, especially one that is humorous.

This is a low budget film, so I knew going in that it wouldn't be like the quality of a Marvel film. But the acting was decent, and some scenes did hit you with emotion and humor.

One of my only complaints is that when we watched it in the theater, the dialogue volume was kinda low, so it was hard to hear what they were saying at points.

My Final Thoughts: For a low budget film, it wasn't bad. Dane did a great job with the music, which really did impact the moments of a scene and show the Southern part of America; it fits. The action was decent and the story was good.
