Editorial Reviews

The serenity of a morning AA meeting is suddenly broken when vicious bank robber Arie Verveen (Sin City), and his guilt-ridden cohort Kurt Caceres (World Trade Center), barge in - taking it hostage! LAPD quickly block off the dead-end street in search of the armed and deadly duo - creating a taut, sobering situation. With the clock ticking, each member must overcome past demons while fighting to stay alive. But in order to do that, the fractured group must first learn to bond together, if they're to survive. The electrifying ensemble is led by John Savage (Deer Hunter) and Jack McGee (Crash). The 2008 San Fernando Valley International Film Festival Best Feature Film Winner was written and directed by Paul T. Murray (Very Mean Men). Boiler Maker, the intense riveting drama, laced with black comedy, like the drink, packs a walloping punch!

I felt the tension all the way through.

This is a terrific film for anyone who has ever attended an A.A. meeting, although it certainly appeals to mainstream audiences as well.

Bottom line: Great little film that you won't regret watching.

Great Independent film with solid performances and a few stand outs worth mentioning. Remember the name Arie Verveen. He plays a bad guy that you love to hate. He should be a household name soon.
First time director Paul Murray does a great job keeping the edginess and tension going throughout this film. Very believable ensemble cast, and I enjoyed seeing the great John Savage again.
The audience feels like they're in the room with the hostages especially when the tension heats up in the small room they're being held in. Actor Joey Diaz stands out and provides just enough comic relief to break the ice for all in the room. Nice score throughout and two great songs over the opening and closing credits.

The tag line for the movie says it all. "Two Bank Robbers Take An AA Meeting Hostage... BIG MISTAKE"
There's a few times during the film that you don't know who to feel more sorry for - The hostages or the bank robbers. I can't image how hard it would be to locked in a room with a bunch of recovering addicts! The 90 minute running time makes this a quick one, which is never a bad thing.

Bottom line: Great little film that you won't regret watching.

Boiler Maker takes the serene setting of a Southern California Alcholics Anonymous meeting, and mixes it up with a couple of bank robbers on the run to create a truly unique situation that really works. Granted, some of the dialogue and references might fly over the heads of those that have not experienced a substance abuse support group. But the suspense and tension is universally understood and that's what makes Boiler Maker such a lovely little discovery. Check it out!

This is a terrific film for anyone who has ever attended an A.A. meeting, although it certainly appeals to mainstream audiences as well. The dialogue is right out of the big-book and A.A. practices, which sets an ironic mood when disrupted by fugitives from a police dragnet. Clearly, writer-director Paul Murray knows his stuff, both from a story-teller's standpoint as well as one who apparently has put in some time at such meetings. I was a big fan of Dog Day Afternoon, so it hit me while watching Boiler Maker what a great idea is it set a bank-robbers-hostage crisis in a controlled situation, like an Alcoholic's Anonymous meeting! I have purchased my copy, as I know I'll enjoy seeing Boiler Maker in the future... especially with friends of mine that might need a little nudge towards considering attendance at a meeting for "the program" that forms the setting of this film!

I can't add much to the above reviews, except to confirm their sentiments on it. Sometimes the lower budget films deliver the most. The over reliance on advanced technology, lush and over-done film sets, unecessary periphernalia and so on won't be found in this film, but you'll be dragged along throughout by the emotion that is well portrayed here. You'll sense that you're right in the room with the characters themselves, uncertain whether you'll live or die. Definitely worth getting your copy.
