Trivia

The role of Max was never intended for name talent but when Tom Sizemore read the script and said that was the role he wanted it was a simple call for Wallen as he got his very difficult casting of a "noir anti-hero". See more »

Good Watch during Lockdown.
8 May 2020 | by najeeb6061See all my reviews

Abstruse is a crime thriller that will keep you guessing what will happen next. The plot grows slowly leading into an intense thrill ride that keeps your attention locked on the action. Whoever liked Eternal Code would also like Abstruse cause it's a worthy follow-up. This is a lower-budgeted affair through and through, and there are no car chases, high kicks and punches but it contains some good camerawork.
