Thoughts on Caught in Time

ThoughtsCaught in Time is a slick action thriller following the deadly cat-n-mouse trying to track down the criminals behind a string of deadly bank robberies. Caught in Time does give each sequences a relentless feel, as we see both sides of what is going on, without painting the criminals as misguided, only greedy. It shows how they are looking to commit the string of robberies, while the police are trying to get one step ahead of them, without too much success. Each will offer up a closer battle, which will see both sides paying to consequences of the actions.
