[Fantasia 2020] Audio Review: Alone (2020)
Director John Hyams (whose filmography includes Universal Soldier: Regeneration (2009), Dragon Eyes (2012) and Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning (2012) and a bunch of TV work) brings a film that takes a very simple premise (based on the 2011 film Gone), with two main leads and crafts an intense game of cat and mouse. Alone (2020) is a slow burn yet compelling ride, giving us a story that is all about survival in the most dire of circumstances.
The following review of the film is in an audio format. Enjoy!
