An impressive first full-length feature indie B film.

Ignore the clearly blatant and bogus high reviews, as well as the tools who gave this film one's and two's, as this film deserves neither. What this is, is a great first full length feature film as writer, director (only a handful of prior short films), producer and first-time actor co/star for Seth McTigue.

His directing was surprisingly spot-on, and the cinematography near perfect, with an impressive tension-filled score that was fitting and captivating - especially for a B film.

Casting and performances were on point, and the production values quite impressive. The story was great conceptually and executed cohesively, although some tweaking by a seasoned writer would've complimented the screenplay greatly. There were some character developments that lacked clarity and needed more depth, that otherwise felt like filler; e.g. Why/what's the deal with the Bonsai tree?

There were some plot issues, and although I get the last act, it could've been better played out. The film also needed more substance and dramatics, and less convoluted and unnecessary filler that made it lack the depth and scope one would expect in this genre.

The pacing was a little slow, but the comfortable 82 min runtime with constant suspenseful twists and the excellent score, will keep you engaged throughout.

Nevertheless, I applaud this newb filmmaker/actor, because he still created a little gem, rookie mistakes and all. It's a solid 7-8/10, but only gets a 6 from me for the blatant high reviews of which I can't stand.

I want back the red envelope

Robert Chang (Sam Song Li) inherits a large corporation from his father and his brother William (Roy Huang). William hires some real life criminals to kidnap his brother as a gag for his birthday and then let loose for a surprise party. The criminals have some plans of their own.

The characters were not developed well enough to care about them. I was confused as to who was the good guys, the guys being robbed or the robbers. The robbers were a group of misfits.

Guide: No F-word, sex or nudity.

I find the remarkably high imdb rating and the 0 review a bit suspect.
