20 Ft Below and Brick Mansions Have Similarities
Verified purchase
20 Ft Below is similar to Brick Mansions in plot. Poor people and ruthless gangs used and controlled by government. Brick Mansions depiction of Detroit is nothing but a shallow, self-righteous attempt to rewrite history and to fool the audience on why people are who they are. 20 Ft Below’s message was more internal and focused on the intestinal fortitude of characters overcoming their plight. Both have lead characters who have lost a wife. However, Brick Mansions has a single protagonist who leads the story, while 20 Ft Below is more an ensemble. Ensemble pieces are difficult to write; the writer did not bring out the best in the story. But the story is there. The Skeeter character was fun to watch. Sound and lighting were very nice for an ultra low budget film. Low budget films can jump start careers. I hope to see some of these actors in bigger budget films.

If you liked Machete, Bad Ass, or even Dead in Tuscon... you will HATE this. The story is trite, the sets are crummy, and the dialog is inane, or illogical, or both. Do not waste your money on it. I have watched some bad direct to DVD movies but this one is the worst. I turned it off after 25 minutes of torture.
I guess I'll put it in my next yard sale and hope that the buyer doesn't ask any questions. (I'd hate to lie to them, but if I tell the truth, they won't buy it.)

Really enjoyed this movie

Loved this movie. It was pretty well done considering it was a low budget film. It starts out with a young female photojournalist, investigating a rumor of numerous people living underground in abandoned subway tunnels.(from the number of shows based on that premise, there must be a lot of abandoned subway tunnels.) She is particularly interested in tracking down the leader of the cult, named "Angel" (Mr. Trejo). She first connects with a young man who lives down there who appears to be somewhat delusional and perhaps schizophrenic and plays the part very well, but soon connects with an ex-policeman who went to the tunnels to deal with the grief of losing his wife leaving the world behind. He and a few other underground characters become her guardians and guides as they explore the tunnels. Soon they encounter "Angel" (the majestic Mr Trejo) who plays the cult leader, poised to emerge from the tunnels to stage a revolution. The acting is very good, with the Majestic Mr. Trejo being delightful evil and dressed in his sleeveless top displaying his impressive upper arms. This one is a keeper for my Trejo collection!

Not a bad movie, just not great.

It would have helped if there had been a bit more character development. Flesh them out a bit more so to speak.

I have over 1500 dvds and this is clearly one of the worse. There is a moral component to this movie but it moves very slowly and the acting is poor.

Not much of a story line here. Danny Trejo has done much better movies. Unless you just like strange, this movie is not worth the time to watch.
