Canadian Sci-fi/thriller Prisoner X (2015), Directed by Gaurav
Seth, is a solid concept that isn't quite where it needs to be as a
screenplay or as a film. Inspired by Primer (2004) and a
little Inception (2010), the film is based on a short novella
named Truth by Robert Reed and has enough political messages
and twists and turns, but is maybe a bit too long winded for its own
good. All that aside, it's decently well made with some interesting
performances and decent production design.
film stars Julian Richings, Michelle Nolden, Damon Runyan, Romano
Orzari, and Nigel Bennett to name a few.
the world rages in war and civil strife, a CIA agent arrives at a
secret underground prison to interrogate a time-traveling terrorist.
Once she realizes how deadly he is, she soon how powerful he is and
his deadly connection to the world's impending fall.
in standard definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a
lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds standard for
DVD. The score by Patric Gaird is pretty strong and sounds good
matched with the decent cinematography of the film.
