The ride "The Shift" takes you on, is one that leaves you gasping for air. The movie gave me great respect for the people that save our lives every day and don't get much credit for it. It also led to a lot of questions as to what's right and wrong with the life and death decisions these professionals make daily. When you leave the theater I'm sure you will have plenty to talk about! I found myself trying to figure out what was right and wrong, and really never came up with the answer..
Leo Oliva, Casey Fitzgerald, Danny Glover and the rest of the cast really make you forget that you are watching a movie, their acting was genuine and extremely emotional. It was also shot in a way where you felt like you are there observing, which is quite emotional for the viewer when your put in rooms of patients who might not make it to the next scene.
I think the great acting and story telling in this movie really show what Director Lee Cipolla can do. He did a great job making the script written by Leo Oliva come to life in a way I have not seen in many movies. He did an exceptional job making me care for the characters. Once you care for the characters you are sucked in and all else around you doesn't matter.
Great movie, but I'd live the younger kids at home. The mature content could be a but much. Look forward to seeing more work from the cast of this film.
