About the Movie
Cutting edge technology spawns an enterprise of unimaginable greed which manipulates life and death as the ultimate profit-making tools.
An intriguing and original story with solid characters.
An original idea well told with solid acting. Although the film occasionally shows signs of its limited budget constraints, the filmmakers got the most out of their mostly newcomer- cast yarning an intriguing tale of mystery with a twist of a science fiction. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few faces from "The Wire" pop up through the movie. This indie film will make you think long after watching it and may even be worth a repeated viewing to fully appreciate this diamond in the rough.
Good flick if you like indie thrillers
Having gone to alot of indie film fests, I had the same feeling watching this movie. Even though it seems to be on the lower end of the budget scale, there are a lot of locations. I hate when I see an indie and it's set in just a house or a bar.
There are some good actors in it. Most notably are Frankie Faison from Silence of the Lambs and The Wire, as well as some other actors from The Wire. I'm guessing the Director has some connections with the show. The lead seems to be a relative unknown, but pulls off a convincing performance.
It's an interesting plot - SPOILER - a life insurance company that can predict when someone will die. I couldn't help but think how this would have been if it had been a $10M production. There are some good moments that make you think and there are some sci-fi elements sprinkled throughout.
Some of the scenes could have benefited from some more camera angles or a different edit, but overall it kept my attention and the plot kept moving.
I would have given this a lower star rating if I was comparing it to the latest Hollywood offering, but as a low-budget independent thriller, I think it's worth watching.
Amazing Film and Plot. Not to miss!
I cannot express enough how incredible this film is. I was at the edge of my seat through out almost the entire film. I loved the different personalities and emotions of the characters. And especially the high action sequences, sent my heart racing. If you are a fan of indie films and suspense thrillers, then this film is for you! Great directing!
