Terminal DVD Review

RLJE Films; NOT RATED; 95 mins; Amazon

Recently released to DVD & Blu-ray from RLJE Films is the thriller Terminal. Directed by Vaughn Stein, the film stars Margot Robbie (who is also a co-producer), Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, Max Irons, and Mike Meyers. The film received a limited theatrical run in United States earlier this year.

In this bizarre film noir, Terminal tells two different tales  about two hired killers (played by Dexter Fletcher and Max Irons) on an assassin job and a dying teacher (played by Simon Pegg) who starts a strange and brief friendship with a strange so-called waitress (played by Margot Robbie). Both stories are cleverly intertwined together at the "Terminal," where everything is never what it seems to be.

It turns out that the "waitress" is an assassin as well, who has deadly plans for everyone at the "Terminal"

Special Features on the DVD include: The Cast of Terminal, Building The World of Terminal, and From Concept To Creation.

Final Thoughts

I'm a bit surprised Terminal received mostly negative reviews from mainstream critics. Yes, there a few slow parts, but I actually like the film, well, most of it anyway. The movie has a weird look to it, as if the story was based on a graphic novel. The plot is all over the place, but it kept me guessing what would happened next. The acting is great, especially from Margot Robbie and Mike Meyers. The cinematography is excellent for a low-budget film.

Overall, Terminal is an intriguing noir-thriller with a great cast and a really twisted ending, which I didn't see coming!
