Five men wake up in a locked-down warehouse with no memory of who they are or why they are there. They are forced to figure out who is good and who is bad to stay alive. Jim Caviezel(Jesus), Greg Kinnear(Little Miss Sunsine), Joe Pantoliano(Matrix, Memento), Barry Pepper(Saving Private Ryan), Peter Stormare(Constantine, Minority Report), and Bridget Moynahan(I, Robot) all star in this low ball independent film.
The acting is basically all this film has to stand on. Barry Pepper was the king of the beaten down castle of a film with Prince Jim pulling up in second. Everyone else was just stupidly annoying(especially Joe and Greg).
Although...Kinnear's death was pretty sweet. Oops! I hope I didn't ruin it for ya.
The plot was a nice idea but not well told. The director's shaky hand and unsure decisions are felt throughout. There just seemed to be no style to the film. Add some spices and it might have had a bit more taste.
The best part was watching Caviezel and Pepper. It did my heart good to see the favorite sniper from Private Ryan pick himself up with a bit of acting confidence and take control of the film stealing it from Jim. I still think Caviezel did his best post Jesus role in "Deja Vu".
Dry and dirty, this film introduces some up and coming big names to life in the low budget. Dry and dirty...that seems to describe it best.
