Fear, Siege and a Hero.
Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (Cooties) bring us a shock film that throws you into an urban nightmare, where death and survival vie for supremacy.
Lucy (Brittany Snow, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2) and her boyfriend Jose (Arturo Castro, Snatched) alight the tube-train to find the Bushwick platform strangely empty and quiet, they head for the exit when suddenly a man runs down the concourse entirely on fire.
Sounds emanate from the exit and Jose rushes up to see what is going on. Before Lucy can stop him, his broken body flies down the stairs from an explosion. There is gunfire, helicopters and smoke, chaos reins. She rushes out and takes cover as bullets rain down from rooftops and people dressed like S.W.A.T. teams rush in and out of buildings shooting anyone that resists.
Making her way down back alleys and dodging bullets, she attracts the attention of two men who take a fancy to what Lucy may have to offer, she hides in what appears to be an abandoned home. But it belongs to Stupe (Dave Bautista, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spectre) a war veteran down on his luck, who quickly dispatches the two would-be rapists. Lucy manages to persuade him to help her get across the district and get her to her grandmother’s house, while he wants to save his family in Hoboken.
With chaos on the streets they have to work together to get their lives back on track as Stupe teaches Lucy field surgery and how to shoot a gun and when they find out what is actually going on it is a fight to save the district.
Plenty of bangs for your bucks.
A good one to add to your Dave Bautista shelf.
