Getting the “birds eye view” can be very advantageous in certain situations. When photographing a panoramic view for instance, or mapping out an area. Being chased, or trying to ensure that you stay ahead in some sort of distance race, this rule certainly applies. Or in this film, all these circumstances collide and prove the point perfectly:
What I love most about this film comes in three parts:
- I love the color contrast. Everything is a shade of orange, grey and dark grey and it all seems to meld together, yet contrast so beautifully that you have to wonder how much of it is planned and how much of it is natural surroundings.
- I love the movement of the camera. Something like this could be very stagnant even though the car is moving but the movement of both the camera and the car gives the audience the feel of being part of the chase.
- I love the graphics. They move as vividly as the rest of the film and tie in with the story well, taking it further than the final shot of the driver looking down over the cliff. Very “James Bond”.
Makes me want to go out and see a action film. A classy action film.
