Zoe Bell - best known for her long running collaborations with Quentin Tarantino - is Avery Taggert, an acclaimed photojournalist looking to put some distance between herself and her own dark history when she takes a job in the remote jungles of Colombia. Her subject? A revolutionary group - led by TIMECRIMES helmer Nacho Vigalondo - with their own hidden agenda. It should be a fairly straightforward job, but when Taggert snaps a photo of something she wasn't meant to see, things go very dark very quickly and she ends up running for her life through the hostile jungle.
Director Josh Waller reunites with his RAZE leading lady for an adrenaline-pumping action adventure through hostile territory, packed with familiar faces including festival mainstays Vigalondo and Francisco Barriero (HERE COMES THE DEVIL; WE ARE WHAT WE ARE). Waller's no-nonsense style delivers a lean, to-the-bone approach, with Bell proving once again - as though she's got anything left to prove at this stage - that her physical skill and fearlessness is matched by an on-screen charisma that should have thrust her into the spotlight long before now. And Vigalondo? When someone gave the manic Spaniard license to chew a bit of scenery as a charismatic villain, any festival regulars should have no problem figuring out what will be the result. For the uninitiated, the answer is big time fun
