Stars Kerr Smith, Lochlyn Munro, Angela Featherstone, Michelle Harrison, Adrien Dorval, Donnelly Rhodes, David Neale, John B.Destry Even if the brewskie is yelling your name from inside, don't enter desolate small-town bars just one of the many messages Director Richard Gale is trying to convey through Indy thriller `Pressure'. A crossbreed permutation of polished road thriller and Richard Kimble intrigues, `Pressure' tells the tale of two med students, Steve (Kerr Smith) and Patrick (Lochlyn Munro), who discard the aforementioned advice, and on the way back to the land of the living, decide to stop off at an uninhabited bar. Realising that a cheerleading convention is in full swing, it looks like the boy's night at the bar will be a memorable one until Amber (Angela Featherstone) decides to chat up the ostensibly unavailable' Steve. Tempted into a possible one-night fling with the mystery woman, Steve follows her outside. But just as soon as he falls back on his offer to play around with her, the woman's unforseen associate hits him from behind. Seems she and Bo Cooper (Adrien Dorval) have set-up their latest prey. When Bo inadvertently shots himself in his manhood', Steve panics, especially when he hears the man identified on his radio as a Cop'. Knowing exactly what will happen to him if he is found in the obdurate situation, Steve darts back to the bar grabs Patrick and they hit the road in a never-ending chase. Within hours, the state's police squad lead by the corrupt, relentless Sheriff Cooper, also the shot man's father- and the FBI have imprinted the hunt one of the biggest of the times. With routes blocked right, left and centre, Steve must harden up and outmanoeuvre his indomitable antagonist, ultimately getting himself out of the mess. Though conventional, `Pressure' is a solid thriller, with some great performances, slick camera-work, tense music score and exceptional use of locale. Gale delivers a movie that doesn't let up for a minute, barely missing a beat over its 90 minutes. Kerr Smith proves he is more than one of Dawson's Creek's teeny cronies, turning in a forceful, notable performance as the innocent on the run. Lochlyn Munro (Scary Movie) adds weighty support as his friend and fellow target, Patrick. Where `Pressure' scores its points chiefly is in the production. This slick, impressive-looking thriller was shot in just 19 days. And for a film shot in that time, with little to no budget or fanfare, this is an enthralling crackerjack thriller proving good things come in small packages.
