Boss Level

Description: A former special forces agent is stuck in a time loop and relives his death over and over again. To avoid a dire situation, he must track down those responsible and stop them. However, not everything here is simple, from the first moments of every day, our hero is constantly attacked by multi-colored killers whose purpose remains a mystery for a long time...

The end comes very unexpectedly, or rather the film tells its story completely, but you just think that there will be something more. The characters aren't too complex either, but what's here is enough to get the general picture. Probably the biggest disappointment was the beginning, but only because the movie uses the aesthetics of old video games, and you really think that it will be something more related to that. And although the movie will "tie" games to this story, I was really hoping to see video game tactics or tropes, or at least something more than "doesn't this remind me of a video game".

The movie clearly has one idea that it wants to show what if you were stuck in the same day only to have tons of people try to kill you every time. The entire film revolves around what the character would try to do, how he would try to get out of it, and what is behind it all. And there's full pedal to the action, from car chases to sword fights, you'll find it all here, and most of it is really well done. And the actors themselves give their full 100% to their role, so when you see a cigar-smoking bad guy whose appearance just screams "Hey, I'm a bad guy" you understand that the film here was made just for a fun idea.

But it's not all about explosions and pew pew, the film stops quite often to show more about what the characters felt. Well, maybe it's even more of a story about one person and what he lost in life, going round and round and realizing what he really wanted. Don't expect too much of an emotional arc for the characters, but overall the film felt quite sincere and not overdone.

Overall - 8/10
