Brilliant Short, a Must See
7 November 2017 | by pidstrSee all my reviews

This is one of those Short Films where everything was just done 'right'. Perfect cast, good storytelling,.. camera, lighting, sound, sfx and editing all spot on, and all to blockbuster standards. Reason for missing 2 more stars - it should be a feature, and there's a single time/duration issue in the final act, which would take a spoiler to describe, and this film should be reviewed spoiler-free.
