A fast-paced, high concept thriller following a 20 something layabout, who over the course of a day, is forced to make his way across an increasingly strange and sinister London, in order to save his kidnapped girlfriend.
MATT and ANNA are a young couple living in London. Anna is starting her career and knows what she wants, whilst Matt is still struggling to find his purpose in life. On the surface they are happy but tensions are beginning to mount. Then one morning masked thugs break into the flat and kidnap Anna before assaulting Matt, locking him into a mysterious vest and leaving him a mobile phone. Matt is told the vest contains a package which he must deliver by following instructions issued to him via the mobile phone. If he fails, tries to seek help, or deviates from their instructions, they will kill Anna. Over the course of one day Matt has to make his way across London in a desperate bid to save his girlfriend as a host of characters attempt to derail him from his mission.
Or is it? Some would argue, life is a game, so I guess it's up to you to decide that. This is a low budget movie, so take that in to account. If not you will be very disappointed. It's not a very good movie overall, but it does have suspension and it is intriguing in its own way, if you like that sort of thing.
I wouldn't want to judge the acting, since this is really fast paced and does not really rely on that. There have been other movies with similar themes, that one could argue are better of course, but this is a nice little movie. You can see it as a snack, as something different. If you can see it that way, with low expectations, you may have some entertaining ahead of you ...
