Among Them 2018: The Action Thriller Film From Kevin James Barry
Two bank robbers take their unwanted hostage into a seedy coastal motel in the dead of winter. When their boss doesn’t show up and their tickets to freedom go missing. The three of them must battle through their deteriorating mental state and find a way out before they turn on each other.
Among Them (Vu Cuop Sieu Dang) with a 90 page script written in 2 days, with the most basic equipment and finances this is a very well made and acted movie.
Its a robbery gone wrong, and they need to hide away, ending up in an offseason coast town at a motel, where strange things starts to evolve, and what seems to me as a ptsd psychosis, starts to rumble the minds of the two culprits.
This is a action film (phim hanh dong), with a story that entangles more than one level of human existence. And the two main actors gives a very reliable performance. Though the end of the story are in a blur. Its somehow interpretable through the way its built up.
The grumpy old man gives a 6, acknowledging the score for the extra suspence, and recommends.
This is the type of film that makes you think and keeps you wondering about the characters and the story. A lot is left intentionally unexplained, letting you come to your own conclusion. Many shots in critical action scenes are also intentionally left out, causing you to fill in the blanks with your own imagination. Among Them will challenge your mind. So It was excellent.
