He's a Mean Mother Trucker.
You got a kick ass visual style with the action scenes. I really enjoyed the last six minutes of the film.
I'm confused by the opening montage(s), and I don't see our hero (Black cop) in any of the first scenes, unless I missed him.
We need to see more of him so we understand this is about him and his personal vendetta right now. His partner getting killed only adds fuel to the fire, and we need to probably see how he knows where to follow the Killer into the mountain area.
I'm also a little fuzzy on the whole quick scenes of our hero turning in his badge to his officer, and then throwing it back at the Killer towards the end. Don't get those few parts.
Otherwise, great job!

Overall, there was way too much talking, nothing really going on that moved me, and stock characters that didn't do anything for this material. A huge disappointment. I couldn't get over your heavy-handedness of this argument here. Let... read

    I wanted to watch this short because the synopsis seemed eerily similar to a script I'm working on. Having said that, I think this is a neat little short. I liked all of the shots as it kept me intrigued as to what the mystery here was. The acting was all good, and this is a very well made piece from a technical standpoint. Now I think there might be one too many lines devoted... read
