Two kidnappers are preparing to carry through with the threat to kill a hostage but they are not alone in the forest. The Reckoner is written, produced, shot, edited and directed by Stephen Oxborrow. It´s a short film with a running time of 12 minutes. The acting is pretty good, it´s nicely shot and edited. The soundtrack is good. The concept is very cool, the pacing is nice and the Reckoner is suitably ruthless and efficient. I hope that Stephen Oxborrow will continue to expand and develop the concept as it as huge potential and is sure to appeal to fans of vigilante flicks worldwide. There is some brief but realistic gore and it done with practical make-up fx. There is no T & A in this.
This review is based upon a online screener provided by Stephen Oxborrow.
Rating: 5½ out of 7. I enjoyed this. I look forward to Stephen Oxborrow´s next project, it would be very interesting to see what he can do with a bigger budget.
