This film follows around a few people trying to bail out during a ZPAW event from a mythical City of Houston populated only by white people and with sparse traffic. The only event portrayed is the actual bail out.

It looks like they spent several hundred dollars making it or even slightly more. The camera work is bad, the special gory effects are awful, the editing is poor... and yet....

There is a story there. The writing is not terrible, the pacing is solid and while it lacks the action of a film with an actual budget they do a lot with what they do have. This is more than the normal hack and slash for low budget films with less hacking and slashing. It is blessedly short and the pacing isn't bad so if you find yourself with an hour filler time and can get this one for free, there are plenty of worse choices.

Don't have the hour filler time yet, but wanted to get your general take before committing an hour. Do you feel that there was anything to learn from this film? Did the characters do anything particularly good or bad that can be used as a takeaway (i.e., 'don't do this when bailing away from white people in sparse traffic'?) Do you feel there was anything new, or perhaps a unique take on a common plotpoint? Anything particularly memorable at all? (don't have to give away the plot, just looking for some descriptions)

Thanks!

The whole movie is a foot/ vehicle bailout. I didn't see any new ground covered here.
