much better than expected
felt compelled to review given the only other review to date is utterly unbalanced. and on the subject of that review ..there are spoilers, and then there's writing the entire plot out - just stupid.
2.5/10 (currently) - it certainly deserves a much higher rating. i found this film very watchable indeed and having not expected it to be given the cursory glance at it's IMDb rating, the fact that i wanted to read up on the actor and director having seen it, in my mind speaks volumes.
i like the plot. the fact it has a plot puts it above a lot of the mainstream rubbish that Hollywood releases. it may be a little predictable, but it's not all obvious at all. i like the balance of cut scenes, and forwards and backwards, and i really like the acting ..not once did i think, 'cheese', or 'he wouldn't say that'. the main character has depth, the scenes where i feel he waits to say something really added to my overall impression of good quality directing.
only negative thing i can really think of, was the camera work when in pursuit, just too jerky ..i know it was supposed to be, but it was just slightly too much a mon avis.
overall, having looked at this page now, i'm gobsmacked that this was so low budget. i can't imagine what this guy could do with a couple of million. thanks for the experience!
