Review

When I heard that the independent film, Kill Zone was attempting to make its mark as an action/modern spaghetti western, I was skeptical. First of all, most of those westerns (after Clint s first) had known-name actors and ever-increasing budgets. Kill Zone was filmed in 2003, and reportedly underwent a 4 year post-production phase. One of the producers said that this was a necessary wait time to keep the low budget production alive and on budget, and that the main reason it took so long was that the production kept gaining ground and having more volunteers as it went! It sounded like the normal argument that most producers make for films that sit on the shelves forever. But recently I was able to screen the final cut of the film, which had just been delivered to Unistar Pictures, the distributor. The first thing I noticed about Kill Zone was the visual quality. Director/DP Vitor Santos created a brilliant look, not usually found in DVCAM or HD, but exhibited throughout the 110 minute picture. Kill Zone is the story of a wanted man named Prescott Roeh (Brandon Chase) who is almost apprehended at the start of the film by Bounty Hunters, Brock Hadley (Ryan Michael Jones) and Rahul (Troy Davidson). A strange Priest (Chris Carberg, who played Moose in Sydney White ) wanders in and a gunfight ensues, with Roeh getting away. Prescott ends up in a small town called Braxton, a place where he had grown up. Ironically enough, Brock Hadley is also from Braxton, and both men return home as the hunt continues. Prescott receives safe harbor from a rancher named Christina, and Brock shacks up at a local motel run by a strange proprietor and his tart daughter. The story continues as the men each have to deal with the sins of their past, and it all culminates in an extremely intricate action sequence in an old schoolhouse. Kill Zone is a disturbingly good action/thriller and a throwback to the old school action movies of Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah, and John Woo. I was also very impressed by the score, a haunting and powerful creation in the vein of Ennio Morricone, but with unpredictability that gives it its own name. Vitor Santos made what s likely an UNDER $100,000 film that looks like more than a million. The performances are strong, the editing is sharp, and it s a fun ride. While it s not a 100 million dollar movie, it s a neat little film that deserves to see the light of day. --IndieFilmReview

Kill Zone was an unexpected find. Advertised as "disturbingly great", I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent photography, interesting story line, and the great shoot out in the old Fellsmere school house. Vitor Santos (a young man at the time the movie was shot), did an excellent job as cinematographer, writer, director and man behind the scenes. Chris Carberg (another young unknown actor)played the part of the Priest to scaringly perfection. Don't look for an oscar award for this, but if you like thoughtful action thrillers, and want to see scenes from the cities of Sebastian and Fellsmere Florida - this one is for you. Good job and thanks for the memories.

Received in good conditon in a timely manner. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. The only redeeming value was it was filmed a few miles from where I lived which made it interesting. One of my friends has a speaking role in it.

I loved Kill Zone! It was a cool modern western and for what it was made for was a seriously impressive feat! The Director has a good eye and I really enjoyed the action scenes. Very cool.

bad acting, bad dialog, "intense" "bad-@$$" idiotic characters, totaly unrealistic scenerios. What childish mind created this nonsense. Unless everyone involved with this project is in kindergarten, I am not impressed. I want my money back.
