Mary Beth Evans,
This movie looks and feels like a big budget Hollywood movie. The visuals, cinematography, effects, and sound mix are impressive as hell! The story-line and plot do "feel" indie, and you can tell that the movie was made by a first time director / screenwriter. But the editing makes the whole thing flow smoothly, the movie goes by very quickly and doesn't overstay its welcome.
Some plot elements are a bit weak and some of the characters are cheesy, the one element in this film that screams "low budget" is its expositional animated sequence, I don't want to give anything away - but it was my least favorite part of this film, I think the movie would have been better had they found another medium to tell that part of the story. However, for a $350,000 price-tag - I'm amazed that they had the ability to produce 5% of what went on screen. This movie has gunfire, action, comedy, special effects and beautiful visuals that make it look like it came right out of the mind of Quentin Tarantino, especially their use of music.
It's violent, but humorous, dark, but FUN! and overall - as a single piece, Pickings works! And it works well. It's not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to seeing what Usher Morgan, Elyse Price and their rest of their team does next.
