Unfortunately, this Australian dystopia n film is no Mad Max. Rohan
Michael Hoole's debut film begins with a strong concept but falls
into the trap of many Aussie films and unfortunately becomes
The story follows Hunter and Holden, two killers for hire with a
difference: they never actually harm their targets, rather they
manipulate the target's weaknesses, to get them to commit suicide.
This concept and the setting are never explored to a satisfying
level. The film is a charter piece, based around four people how
seem to criss-cross each other and cautiously interact. However
film's characterization fails because the characters are bland; The
momentum is lost as the dialog descends into soap opera territory.
This film is full of potential, yet sadly never eventuated., as
neither the characters nor the environment draws the audience in
you are left wanting. However if you are a fan of the Midnight
Juggernauts, the score will satisfy you.
