I was drawn to this because of the cast, I tend to like the work of B movie twins the Londons and it goes without saying that Robert Englund is worth taking the time for. Telling the story of a security guard given the task of protecting a single room but he isn't allowed in it. He has to watch the security footage of this pitch black room and gets to live rent free in the same building. Easiest job ever right? But doubts begin to arise as strange things begin to happen and his shady employers retain their secrets. The movie starts off strong, it gives you a mystery and baits you making you desire to know the answers but when the answers come out they really aren't that good. Nice concept, weak delivery but still not the worst out there. Passable feature saved by some nice ideas and a decent cast. The Good: Decent cast Nice idea The Bad: One actors accent repeatedly shifts Story feels a bit incomplete Things I Learnt From This Movie: Jason London has the worlds hairiest nipples If the world hangs in the balance if something isn't protected then just hire one single security guard and don't tell him anything
I liked the theme and still believe that the story had the potential to deliver a blockbuster movie but the film fell apart due to sloppy direction, script and time constraints. Half explained story and hurriedly completed scenes made this an average film. The acting was OK but really handicapped by the how the film evolved. First half was fairly enjoyable but the second half was rushed and left too many gaps.In short, This film needed a better director and script writer.
I agree with a number of other reviews of this film: it started off really well. The acting was good, the premise strong, and the direction was deliberate and moody. However, where it should have kicked into high gear, it actually sort of fell apart. The last act could have stood at least one more good pass at the script, and the low budget really didn't help there either. Overall I would say that you should know that the ending won't be as satisfying as you might like, and armed with that information you might enjoy it more. Unfortunately the movie must be thought of as a lost opportunity.
The story in general is interesting, and the setting perfect - but there is something missing in this film - or some things. First is the acting. Why they chose Jason London to play the main character I really don't know. He just isn't a very convincing actor in this role (not that I remember ever hearing of him before) which means the character became unbelievable. The other actors were fine with good performances. The second thing is either the script or editing. Some of the reactions and things that happen in the film are just so unbelievable and unnatural that they break the flow of the story to such an extent that it becomes annoying to watch. Such a shame for a film that had potential.
While this is not the best movie by any means it is pretty good. Better than I thought it would be, at least. The best part is the mystery of the weird building. It reminded me of the Peter Clines novel 14, in that it involves a mysterious apartment where not everything is as it seems. The ending and explanation are pretty good. I was somehow expecting to feel let down by the reveal and that wasn't the case. The acting is pretty good, or maybe I should say its really good for this type of movie. The characters seemed nuanced and not just 2D cutouts are can be often found in these lower budget movies. Plus I liked that the setting was somewhere other than the US, that added a little bit of extra charm to the movie. Recommended, honestly this movie is better than I thought it would be and I was entertained for the whole 1.5 hours it took to watch.
