+1 (2013) Movie Review
Synopsis:Set in the golden era of Grand Prix Racing '1' tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives during Formula 1's deadliest period, and the men who stood up and changed the sport forever. |
Dennis Iliadis (The Last House on the Left, Hardcore, Proini ptosi) did a great job directing this movie and writing the story. I am not sure if Dennis was aiming for a Sci-Fi, horror or a drama movie because this movie does not fit any one category, maybe it was all. He is known as an actor, writer and producer that knows how to make events stand out can captivates its viewers.
+1 contains nude and sexual content, gore, violence, bad language, alcohol drinking and not much suspense or frightening scenes.
+1 is about three college friends who goes to a party that turns out to be fatal in more than one way. While everyone is having an amazing time, a meteor hits the earth and causes an electrical disturbance which makes a doppelganger of everyone (that’s where the title comes from) that attended Angad’s (Rohan Kymal - Newlyweeds, Fish Will Bite) party. It was crazy that everyone continued on with the party after all that is happening. What happens to the doppelgangers - watch and see.
The acting was exceptional and so was the cinematography, value of the movie quality compared to the budget and the overall atmosphere of the movie. The movie could have elaborated a bit more as I was asking myself, why didn’t everyone just leave the party after all the drama and violence started happening. I really think this movie could have received a seven or eight if the ending did not seem so scattered and disorganized as though it was rushed.
