      Audience Member pretty cool, filmed in dallas so i gotta show support Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member First off someone really really really needs to change the poster. The movie doesnt even have a black kid in it for gods sakes!!! This movie was a complete thrill ride with plenty of twists and human emotions. beautifly directed and esquiste storytelling. SEE IT. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A low-budget thriller that's better than it has any right to be. Truman is a low-level flunkie who finds himself face-to-face with a professional assassin named Rains (from Claude Rains, who played the Invisible Man). At a criminal enterprise gone wrong, he and Rains go toe-to-toe in a brutal onscreen fight, with Rains coming out ahead. Rains takes an unhealthy interest in Truman, seeing him as his successor and protege. This is also equally unhealthy for Truman’s friends as Rains does everything in his power to goad Truman into going over the edge. Directed by nobody you know, starring nobody you know, the plot is solid (it doesn't answer every question it raises, but most seldom do), the fight choreography is top-notch and graphic, and it held my interest. Can’t ask for more than that, really. Woodchuck sez, "Worth a look." Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member i like this movie full of action and worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I can't believe this came out of Dallas. But I think they meant to name it The Protege. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Well this film may of had a low Budget as it may be, it wasn't all that bad. Though some of the dramatic dialog was clogged up a little and the overall plot at the end of the movie was a little confusing.
