Familiar story beautifully done
5 September 2018 | by rwaller-688-593340See all my reviews

Okay, you won't experience any big surprises in this one-set piece of a battered psychologist trying to save a brilliant and dangerously-powerful little girl from vivisection by the military in 80 minutes. But if you're okay watching a good, if familiar, story with mostly very good characters, you will be caught up in the elegantly paced drama that unfolds with tautness and grace. Richard Neil is very likable as Dr. Fonda, a certain project leader's choice for Last Resort, and young Savannah Liles is electrifying as the "sociopathic killer" with the scary powers who dares him to do what no one else could do. It's a stock situation but a lot of thought and care has gone into this treatment, and if it falls somewhat short of being deeply moving, it doesn't fall far short. Well worth your time.
