Remember Judgement Night? This film compares itself to that movie, as it’s about a group of filmmakers who find themselves on the run from a violent gang after watching them execute someone. Except there’s one problem — they escape the building that they’ve been filming at, so they rely on their moviemaking skills.
That means that the stuntmen must use their martial arts for real, the special effects guys start making real explosives and even the sound crew start making traps.
Can they survive the night?
The film is heavily influenced by films director and writer Marc Price grew up with, including Alien, Day of the Dead and The Goonies. He even looked to the lighting of Michael Mann and the way Jackie Chan’s 80s films created their action scenes.
Jean-Paul Ly, who plays Donnie the stuntman, is the kind of action star I didn’t think we had any longer. His fights are amazing and he has charisma as well. I’m excited to see him in more movies after this.
If you’re looking for a tense thriller that has great hand to hand combat and characters you care about, this is your movie.
