Action/Adventure, Drama, Suspense/Thriller
This no-budget local production recalls the video remakes of Hollywood blockbusters in Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind; it appears to have been shot across several city blocks and a couple of public parks. Likely modeled on the 90s action flicks of Sylvester Stallone and Jean-Claude Van Damme, it concerns an Iraq War veteran whose son gets hold of a top-secret computer disc, which forces them to flee a bunch of armed thugs. The story doesn’t make much sense, the performers regularly flub their lines, and the fights look like they were choreographed by grade schoolers, but the participants seem to be having so much fun that you might find this endearing as a home movie. Sidney Mansa Winters directed.
