Solid Indie Thriller
Slick and smarmy Jeremy Stanton (Dean Cain) is lost in the Mojave desert, surrounded by foreign wilderness and clueless as to where he is. Things are made steadily worse when the mysterious Archer (Danny Trejo) starts hunting Jeremy down. What does Archer want, and why is he chasing Jeremy?
A very solid, mysterious and engaging thriller from first-time director Darren Lemke. Direction is dead-on and the audience is consistently interested in Jeremy Stanton's plight. Writing is exceptional and photography is the same.
Lost almost being a one-man show, Dean Cain leads the film with ease. We slowly like him as he grows more and more desperate to survive. Trejo only appears fully at the end, but his presence is felt. The rest of the cast is just as good.
A solid indie thriller that I really recommend.
