Main Cast: Dominiquie Vandenberg plays Andre, an ex-soldier with raw-nerve sensitivity and misplaced anger. Eric Etebari plays Junior Lopez, a wealthy criminal with animalistic charisma. Sarah Bowen plays Janie, the woman they both want for very different reasons.
Mr. Vandenberg and Mr. Etebari are excellent cast choices to play antagonists. Andre attracts the audience with his vulnerability, while Junior seduces the audience with his fierce charm.
Storyline: Honorable combines many elements into the main story; the after effects of war on a soldier, the mortality and motivations of a criminal, and the manipulations of a young naïve woman. Well-placed characters move the story forward with humor, and without losing sight of the underlying tension between the antagonists. The storyline shows many perspectives of the same situation, which all lead to the climatic ending.
Director: Jesse Johnson did an excellent job with this movie. LA provided a wonderful backdrop to complement the grittiness and complexity of the story. Interesting location shots and camera angles balanced the acting styles of his cast.
Overall: This is not your typical movie! With a surprise ending, talented cast, solid storyline and wonderful direction, it's a must see for all independent genre fans!
