Typical no-plot short
7 December 2017 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

Yet another zero-script, no-story short posted... why? Four minutes of fight scene, yet another "Black Widow flip-around-the-head" move choreography stunt, mandatory F-bomb, says-nothing ending.

I wouldn't mind these so much if the people who post them on IMDb told us they're a "college project" or "experiment in graphics" etc. Something to let us know to expect nothing more. Then we could decide if we want to spend time watching an incomplete college experiment.

On the positive side, the two lead characters are well-played and somewhat interesting. The CGI character at the end holds some promise, then fails to deliver... and after all it's just another CGI character.

Overall typical "everything here has been done before". If they want a better review, give us a better story. Advertising agencies can provide a moving story in 30 to 60 seconds. Surely any writer / director worth his/her salt can do so in 5 minutes.

I honestly am starting to wonder if IMDb should increase the restrictions on their posting guidelines. Otherwise they're soon going to have listings here for everything posted on YouTube.
