Started off interesting, then the amateur writing started showing
7 December 2019 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

I'm a fan of neo-noir thrillers, and since the trailer sold me, I decided to give this B-grade film a chance. What started off surprisingly interesting and suspenseful, turned bland after the fist half.

Novice director Stephen S. Campanelli was great behind the camera, and ok directing his cast. But the screenplay by amateur writers Iver William Jallah and Rich Ronat, needed a seasoned writer to look it over and make some major edits. I get this is a low budget B-grade film, but what started off so good, could've easily ended just as good or even great. Sadly, once it sets up its naughty and wild formulaic plot, it stops delivering.

Casting was decent with Kelsey Grammer, KaDee Strickland and the lovely Zulay Henao, but as a long-time fan of Cage's, I wanted more "Cage-iness". Cinematography and production sets were on point, as was the score.

For a B-grade low budget film, I've seen much worse, and still enjoyed the most part of the film. It's a generous 7/10 from me.
