5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing and brilliant thriller - a totally unexpected gem, 12 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Storage [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
This reminds me of the first time I saw Dead Calm. I was blown away by the exceptional entertainment, acting and direction. This is yet another example of astoundingly good Aussie cinema. Beginning with a sweet moment between 'Jimmy' (Matthew Scully) and his Dad, it swiftly moves into a traumatically violent mugging and Jimmy finds himself moving in with his uncle Leonard, a kindly 'good bloke' and ex-soldier who runs a storage facility where customers can leave all their junk or secrets locked away safely.
With pretty but rebellious colleague Zia his only distraction, it's not long before Jimmy's curiosity gets the better of him and he chances across a customer he's convinced is hiding evidence of a murder. But how can he get around the rules that prohibit him from looking in the storage unit? And how can he convince anyone, including his Uncle, that he's not imagining things?
Storage benefits from very likeable and natural performances that help enhance the credibility of everything in the screenplay, and main actor Matthew Scully looks like a likeable cross between 'Final Destination' star Devon Sawa, and James McAvoy. It's also filmed with a terrific flare for tension, and the Writer/Director Micahel Craft is an expert at unexpected sudden shocks, and even turning expected situations into really nerve-shredding tension. The film also had far more shocks and twists and surprises than I was expecting, and a huge amount of effort and care had clearly been lavished on the story and the screenplay to make it a brilliant and nerve-wringing thriller.
Far superior to what it's genre and low profile might suggest. Hugely worth your time. I can easily recommend this without a second of hesitation.
