Bryan Brown stars in this action thriller as a special effects expert who gets in over his head after being hired to stage a fake assassination.
It’s got a great story, with lots of twists and turns throughout that made everything unpredictable and fresh, although at times it feels a little too convoluted. The effects themselves are really cleverly done, and add a lot to the story, especially in the climax. Brown and Brian Dennehy really help to ground the film, making their characters feel realistic and likeable.
Although it stretches credibility at times, and could have explored some aspects more fully, I really enjoyed F/X; it had some really clever, interesting ideas that put a fresh spin on the “man on the run” genre.
