Storyline

On poor terms with his sister, Angela since their father's death, Lucas Chance is hesitant to believe that she has been taken against her will until he learns their mother suffers from the same strange dreams of her abduction that Lucas himself has been having. Unsure of the meaning of it all, Lucas enlists the help of Angela's ex boyfriend, Dennis, and the two set out to poke around the strip club she worked at. The trail leads them to a drug manufacturing plant where Lucas witnesses the murder of a chemist, and accidentally comes in contact with the substance the chemist was manufacturing. Lucas soon comes to realize that the drug has given him newfound telekinetic abilities which he struggles to control as he searches for his sister in an ever-changing web of human trafficking and experimentation.

A genuinely enjoyable and exciting sci-fi action film
2 September 2017 | by stuartandrew86See all my reviews

The plot of Patient 62 is fairly straightforward: Boy has sister………..boy doesn't like sister working in a strip club………. girl disappears ………boy has freaky dreams about sister……… boy learns sister has been nabbed by a chemist messing around with genes ………….. things don't quite go so well for one of them……….. boy develops telekinetic powers and kicks some bad guy ass. Ahhh, we've all been there……..

This is a film that in some ways took me by surprise as it takes a real-world hot topic such as genetic manipulation and wraps it up in a story of relatable family strife and all fused with a tasty action sci-fi adventure. All too often these types of films serve only to spoil the experience by being overly unrealistic and fantastical way beyond the productions limited means, thankfully this film doesn't fall into that trap.

An undoubted strength of the movie are the central performances of Reece Wagner (Lucas) and Andrew Valdez (Dennis). If you add to that a strong supporting cast taken from the local theatre committee the makers have avoided something that occasionally detracts from an indie film such as this poorly acted set-pieces. I have to admit that the role of the primary bad-guy (Glenn LaPoint) is exactly how a bad guy should be played – full of controlled (and sometimes uncontrolled) aggression and menace, well-played sir.

Here we have a well acted production with no real weak acting links. If you add to that a fine pacy script with a number of witty exchanges of dialogue throughout, plus some inspired special effects, lighting and editing which belies the films low-budget you have a package that should not fail. I'm sure it won't.

If all that wasn't enough then I could add that there are a number of gorgeous sexy women inhabiting the aforementioned strip club – however I'm far too much of a gentleman to mention that……….
