Expo (2019)

With only three days to prove his innocence, a struggling ex-soldier (Derek Davenport) is forced to take one last job and save his sister (Amelia Haberman, who was in not one, but two Krampus-themed films) or go to jail for a crime he did not commit.

This comes from writer/director Joseph Mbah, who was also behind Krampus Origins and the upcoming Battlefield 2025.

Richard (Davenport) is dealing with the memories of his military past while struggling to make ends meet as a Uber-style driver while also looking after his sister Sarah (Haberman). On a day that he’s running late to pick her up, a man named Chris (Richard Lippert) kidnaps a co-worker’s daughter and Richard gets blamed for the crime.

When Chris takes Sarah as well, that’s when this all gets even more personal. There’s also Detective Moro (Michael C. Alvarez), who thinks Richard had something to do with the crime.

I don’t know what the deal with the wound and bruise makeup was in this movie, but it’s so dark that it’s borderline distracting in parts. Also, the PR for this film compares it to Commando, which is a pretty high bar for it to reach. Amazingly, this movie ends with a total science fiction twist that seems to set up for a sequel, then hits you with over ten minutes of credits that pad its hour-ish run time to eighty-five minutes.

Expo is available on digital on demand from Green Apple Entertainment.

DISCLAIMER: We were sent this movie by its PR team, but that has no impact on our review.
