This is an uneven piece. The lighting, sound and camera work were fine. Mocking the ultimate-fighter millieu with a gun duel was imaginative, a good mocumentary take on the inane gabble fighters engage in. Unfortunately your actors weren't up to the task. Especially Rick "the hammer." For me, it would have helped if Rick's back story were more interesting, so I think the script/story should have gotten more attention. And the actual duel felt anticlimactic. After such a build up, it was over too quickly, I think.

    After 137 reviews, I doubt much can be added that hasn't been said. But since it was assigned, here goes. As for formatting or misspellings or bad grammar, I couldn't care less as long as they don't make the script unreadable. As a writer, you'll either correct them or you won't. CONCEPT: Two "damaged" people meet and repair each other's damage. Not a new concept. That... read
