Review: The Guardian (2009)

First I´d like to thank Andrea Ricca for contacting me. The Guardian is shot, edited written and directed by Andrea Ricca who also created the plentiful computered gendered fx in this two and half minute long short film which shows strong influences from Ray Harryhausen and the Indiana Jones films but it´s shot on a zero budget. The pacing is extremely high (not surprising considering the short running time). The viewer shouldn´t expect to much acting, instead this is a actionpacked fx showcase. The camerawork and editing is pretty good. The cgi rendered skeleton warrior is pretty effective. No T & A or gore in this.
This review is based upon a online source and The Guardian can be viewed here .
Remember to check out Andrea Ricca´s website for more of his short films, see link
Rating: 5 out of 7. A entertaining fantasy short and in my opinion you can´t go wrong with a warrior skeletons.  =) It would be interesting to see what Andrea Ricca could do if he had a a proper budget.
