Evil Twin (2013), Producer/Director: Christian Pfeil, Actors: Cha-Lee Yoon, Can Aydin, Phong Giang. http://epicmanproduction.com/eviltwin/index.html
“The film begins at the end of a robbery. The main characters, the up-market criminals, are old friends and also two sets of brothers. In the job they just completed, teleportation technology was stolen and this brought out the worst in one of them. The Evil Twin begins a fight that catapults them back and forth through time and space; nobody knows which way this fight will go or the next place the devices will send them…
Who will be the winner in this brotherly battle and have the control of the teleportation and the gang?”
What do you mostly want to see in a good action one-on-one combat short? Brilliantly choreographed fight scenes, check. Beautiful camera angles and shots, check. Brutal realistic one on one combat, check.
I love the play and the fights between the characters. I think it’s a fun idea to use some sort of portal to transport you (and most times, unfortunately, your opponent too) to a new terrain. Especially if you think you can’t win in the current one. It’s quite fun to see them fight on a bridge, in the rain, on top of a tank, bare hands, guns, … and a cameo from the director? ;).
It’s a crazy all out indie sort of an action flick. Somehow reminded me of The Raid. Perhaps this is the direction the director will be going for in producing a full length movie? I hope so. I think it’ll be great.
I wish there’s more story to it though, just so I’d have more emotional attachment to the characters and I’d root more for one of them ;). And, I know this is more of a men-flick, but I’d love to see either more female characters (not just a stripper!) or none at all.
EVIL TWIN is on its way!
