Wicked Plans Short Film Review

Film Review By #MatthewSawyer

4/5

Wicked plans, written and directed by Lee Chambers presents a unique take on the typical terrorist plot by setting it on Halloween. The story follows a foreign extremist from Amadajiya as he plans to enact a moment of terror on a senator and his family. We never find out exactly why, but the film isn’t interested in the why’s as its sole purpose is to give the viewer a good laugh. 

 

This is a visually striking film that is expertly directed. The film’s cinematography is top-notch, capturing the festive atmosphere of Halloween while also creating a sense of unease and tension as the terrorist’s plan unfolds. The use of lighting and colour is particularly noteworthy, with the bright and cheerful hues of Halloween decorations contrasting sharply with the dark and shadowy scenes.

The film is also well-acted, with strong performances from the cast. The three younger people our terrorist meets along the way are particular standouts. Their sharp wit and sarcasm work brilliantly in the film. The lead actor, Dayne, also does an excellent job, except for maybe a few slips in the accent, all the cast do a great.

 

The director Chambers has a unique approach to the tone of the film, and he executes it flawlessly. He sets a particular tone and sticks with it throughout the film, making sure that the audience is able to understand the style and the message that he wants to convey. The humour in the film is a reflection of this tone, and it is not for everyone. However, for those who appreciate this type of humour, the film is an absolute delight. The film is not only enjoyable, but it also leaves a lasting impression on the audience. Overall, Chambers has created a film that is not only entertaining but also thought-provoking, which is a rare combination.
