Introduction

A man wakes up after seemingly having a car accident, but mysterious things start happening to people around him. Fighting amnesia while trying to find the truth, but who was he?

 

BreakDown

Right off the bat, I will tell you that this movie does have some language, and while there is a lot of death in the film, there is only one graphic death (See the Spoilers further down). This Film only has 3 main characters, everyone else is a side character. This movie believably uses the Amnesia mechanic. The main character Liam is trying to figure out who he is after he wakes up from a wreck. While some movies use the Amnesia mechanic as lazy writing, this movie uses it as a focus to help drive the story. Liam is going from point to point trying to recover memories, but it's not the "I used to be a super spy" (looking at you Borne movies) They show real interactions, real moments of a real person's life. On his journey, he runs into a woman that claims to be connected to him and joins him on his journey of self-discovery. It is a good hour and a half journey that when all is said and done feels complete. 

 

Spoilers

The Main Characters Liam and Jane were in the car together, and Liam actually stopped Jane from committing suicide on the anniversary of her sister's disappearance. I won't spoil the rest because the ending is amazing that you will enjoy. 

 

Final Thoughts

I would give this film an 8/10, the characters are very real and feel almost tangible. The music fits extraordinarily well. The effects were on point and the storytelling was organic. I would give this movie a watch
