Y I K E S (in a good way)
16 August 2018 | by jonspenstSee all my reviews

As I was watching Calibre, I found myself growing both impressed with the setup and desperate in my hope that it would not stumble into the same pitfall that most thrillers do, which is the eye-rolling plot convenience of characters making dumb decisions. Thankfully, as you can probably tell by rating, this movie pleasantly surprised me! The characters act realistically, and every single nail-biting moment feels earned within the context of the story. Writer/director Matt Palmer deserves high amounts of praise for his attention to detail and tight storytelling. The thematic content in this movie is pretty heavy, but it doesn't feel excessive or exploitative in any way. In simpler terms, this movie takes an incredibly solid story setup and never once fumbles with the follow-through. My only gripe keeping it from a perfect score is that I didn't necessarily feel anything special in regards to the cinematography or the score (although I will note that the lack of music in certain scenes was an inspired choice). Overall, it's a tense movie with sobering content that will most likely leave you questioning what you might have done differently in such a scenario but wholly satisfied with what you saw.
