Thoughts on Inhumanity

 

Characters – Jessa is the latest victim of serial killer Six Pack Sam, she survives in a coma, waking up to learn her father has committed suicide. She isn’t willing to accept this and sets of to investigate the truth. While she is a victim we don’t see enough about how she wants the truth and she never feels like she is doing the leg work. Dr Campbell is the one operating the experiments on Six Pack Sam, she goes against the people who want her search to make sure her idea could change the world. Sergio is a friend of Jessa’s father, the one who uses his connection to help her learn the truth, he has his addiction which could cause problems between the two. Six Pack Sam is the serial rapist and murderer, stronger than most men, he just doesn’t hold back when it comes to committing his crimes, now he is being experimented on as we learn about his motivation.

PerformancesDarcel Danielle is the leading role is good as the victim and woman that wants to know the truth, she isn’t just a woman on a mission which makes her performance need to be more withdrawn at times. Diana Rose is good as the idealistic woman believing she can change. Ford Austin is good as the investigator trying to get to the bottom of everything. Leviticus Wolfe is an imposing threat as the serial killer and rapist which makes him the standout performer in this film.

StoryThe story here follows one woman that awakes from a coma after a sexual assault to learn that her father has killed himself and must try to figure out just what really happened to her father. This would have been enough for a conspiracy riddle thriller, though we get more with a doctor trying to cure a serial killer of his ways which with balance could have work too. The problems with the story come from the overcomplication of characters involved in the conspiracy which only ends up giving us an extended run time with less time with the characters we need to be following. If you do like watching films that go around with large numbers, this will be one that could be enjoyed.

Action/HorrorThe action is a mix of different fights, with the assassin like guy chasing down Jessa as the highlight of them, the horror in the film comes from just where and how brutal the kills going on.

SettingsThe film takes place in a city, one we don’t know which has the serial killer in it and shows us just how everything can end up being in this one city.


Scene of the Movie –
Chainsaw time.

That Moment That Annoyed Me One or two too many characters introduced.

Final ThoughtsThis is an action thriller with a pinch of horror that is ambitious with the pure number of characters we are introduced too. We get a slow build up to the big conclusion which will be remembered.

 

Overall: Action thriller that is slightly too long.
