Brimming with Potential
16 September 2018 | by timstokes-55732See all my reviews

A short sharp little film, worth a watch as well filmed and played.

Clearly a tiny budget but it left me wanting to know what happens next.

Give this man more money, a longer piece of screen time and keep the main character, cool and kickass and you've got a quality film in the making.
