There is a very 80s vibe to the film, initially, like it is a throwback or a lost film from the age of SNL in its prime, or the original DIE HARD. But this film is grounded in a more realistic approach than John McClain’s quipping Superman, Zoie Palmer’s quietly and beautifully performed Frances, just a low on the totem pole rookie cop, that finds herself guarding a jewel thief and suspected murderer.
And from these humble beginnings the film goes places and to degrees I did not expect.
All in all an impressive effort by cast, crew and director Jason Lapeyre. Grade: Strongly Recommended!
