Storyline

The heroes of the film decided to commit a crime - to rob a bank. They thought of all the details, decided who and what part would play and calculated everything. There shouldn't be a misfire. They succeeded to fulfill the plan. It seemed that the most difficult part of the work was already left behind, but the dangerous adventures did not end. Six criminals, the goal is common but it seems like someone on their team has their own plans. And now the truth will open, creating a lot of problems for the gang. Will the former accomplices be able to agree, given the new circumstances?

Abysmal

Watched on Amazon Prime.

Having watched Orion's first feature film Despair, I was curious to see if he had improved. Despair wasn't good but it was at least a little bit ambitious and original than this awful film.

After robbing a bank (Which we don't see and are only told this, no budget), a group of criminals are trapped in a room by an unknown party and told to wait. Yup. Wait. There's so little story it's insane that this film was stretched to 80 minutes, pacing is horribly slow and the dialogue is bad, really bad. When the characters aren't repeating the same lines of dialogue (What is this? What do we do now? What's going on?), the rest consists of swearing. I have absolutely no problem with swearing, but when it's overused to such an extent it just becomes utterly boring.

On a technical side, the film struggles. Visually the film looks better than Despair, but most of the shots start to look the same after a while and it becomes uninteresting. The sound quality is utterly atrocious, filming in a big open warehouse for the whole film was not a good idea, the dialogue suffers from severe reverb and is hard to hear at times. In some scenes it sounded like the filmmakers tried to used some sort of anti reverb filter but it just sounded worse.

Setting your whole film in one room is an interesting experiment and it can work if executed well. This film is thin, boring and painful to watch/listen to. Avoid.
