This has a faith based feel to it, but doesn't shy away from the ugly side of trafficking pushing it right up to the edge of storytelling.
In full disclosure I know this filmmaker, I don't generally write reviews on films for people I know because they can be received as bias by everyone else. This film was worth the review and my honest take of the project since I know that the filmmaker would want nothing less from me.
I can honestly say this is worth the watch. Yes you can see there was a limit to how far you can stretch a budget when the need for post production VFX come into play. but the talent of the acting and storytelling overshadows that one area. This totally comes down to the visionary storytelling of Micah and joey. the story works on every level for me, it kept me engaged and moving with the action. I loved the opening scene establishing the relationship of Ryan (Micah Lyons) and Zoe (Netty Leach). However, ultimately Jason Peter Kennedy as Kooter stole the show for me personally.
This is a good movie, directed by a duo of talented filmmakers (Micah Lyons and Joey Loomis), written by a very talented writer (Micah Lyons) and there is a lot other filmmakers like myself can take from this film, I rented it to watch but will be buying the film so i can watch and take some notes on how I can improve from watching this film.
congrats to the cast and crew on a job well done.
