Don’t get me wrong, it’s not American Beauty, but it’s also not trying to be.
Would I pay $16 to see it in theaters? No. But if you’re a fan of shows like CSI or Law and Order, or like the Saw movies (with less/no gore), this will be worth your 90 minutes.
Bruce Davison always adds to whatever project he is in. Sorbo is great (but not in it as much as you would think since he’s trapped in a box). The other lead, Patrick Barnitt, does a great job (especially for an actor without a lot of credits). I didn’t really buy the villain. Just thought it was a bit over the top. I understand maybe he was compensating for size or age, but I agree with the other user, it comes across as a bad impression of Heath Ledger’s joker. The rest of the supporting cast does a good job at making even the small roles memorable.
Again, it might not be for everyone, but if you like crime periodicals or thrillers with a twist, this is a fun little movie.
