THIEVES

THIEVES
(14minute short)

USA, 2011/2012
Director: J.G. Barnes

5/10










"Thieves", the debut-short from director J.G. Barnes, is an interesting and well-made, but ultimately pretty unsatisfying dialogue-heavy science-fiction story.

The plot is quite cool, the camera work is superb, the electronic soundtrack is awesome, the colorful credits look terrific and the lead performances from Sheldon Simmons & Kelly Kirstein are top notch.
Unfortunately, the whole movie drags and drags, there's absolutely no suspense or tension and IMO all the pseudo-futuristic settings look plain ugly.


Could have been way more entertaining with a better script, a better direction
and better-looking settings.
