For some reason I had little hope for this one, but once I started I just had to watch the whole thing.
There no need for a big budget when you know when you are doing and you write up a good script.
No fillers, no fluff, no vacuous metaphors, ...
Enought for you to understand the characters and to make you care about them.
Yeah, it leans on some stereotypes. And that's ok. That's what stereotypes exist for.
The action is also well done as well, by the way. Nothing flashy, just effective stuff that they let you clearly see.
Perfectly well done and perfectly enjoyable.
They could have used more money to get more famous actors and more flashy unrealistic action... but to be honest it doesn't it it; I'd say that it'd even make it more showbusiness-y and less storytelling-y.
Congrats to the team. Well done you.

I was suprised when I first saw the initial 7.5 ratings, bad b list actors, very rage baity premise and a title with very little imagination. This ought to be a below average thriller flick direct to tv and I was right.
It is about a group of people hostage to a violent young thug who is trying to convince them to stay quiet about his violent theft of a winning lottery ticket. The premise is actually intruiging at first as you see the hostages being swayed by the promise of millions of dollars in lottery winnings. A lot of happens in the middle of the movie and the ending is very lazy, expected social messaging. It's that kind of movie, a movie with the premise as a hook and nothing to show for it. It is supposed to be, you would assume, a study on human nature and how morality goes out the window if the stakes are high. Very little of that, the actors wouldn't have been able to pull it off anyway, still what we get is cheap action instead. What a waste. What a bad movie.

Excellent movie to watch. It had excitement, drama, plot twist and violence. I don't often write reviews, but I had to let everyone know this is a good movie to watch. The roller coaster ride kept you on your toes, guessing all throughout the movie. Now that I think about it, as I'm writing this writing this review they really did pack a lot into this movie. It was intellectual, violent, an absolute page turner. You literally anticipated every moment of the movie. Oh, and then I mentioned it was violent. Like some Quentin Tarantino film noir. It is not for the faint of heart. All that said, I'll give this Movie a solid 10. And like I said, I don't usually write reviews but this movie was really fun and enjoyable to watch.
