100 Days to Live ★★★½

I'll be honest: I was ready to turn this off after 15 minutes. Every component of this production is a little too cheap for its scope and ambition. It's a little too slow for the first half, but the tone takes a shift midway and this turns into a really interesting thriller.

The characters are believable because of some very good mid-budget acting talent and good character development. As a result, the climax is satisfying. What a pleasant surprise.
