Beta Test Science Fiction Thriller Hits Home(Available Now)October Coast

                              Now available on DVD & VOD

Beta Test is a  decent action film with a small similarity to that of Tron(1982)just that a person from our world is trapped in the gamer's world and has to do their bidding.

Story Synopsis:
 Champion gamer Max Troy discovers events in a new video game are being mirrored in the real world, and must join forces with the game's protagonist, Orson Creed, to unravel the conspiracy before the game's sinister plot overwhelms the city.

 What we have here is Max as stated above is testing a new game where what happens in the game , happens in real life. Many are comparing this to Gamer with Gerard Butler,  I feel however this is a far better film.
Convincing actors able to pull of a film that is not original but with the effort of the entire group this makes for a good thrill ride and the fight scenes are really well choreographed near the end of the film.
 Also the images of the game play are good as well(above)our "hero" in the film Orson Creed is being controlled by a chip planted at the base of his neck (see below)
The story deepens as the men responsible for making Orson play out their wishes in the game, have a pawn if you will -they have his wife and if he does not do their bidding they will kill his wife.
Yes I know seen this so many times but this is a good action film , I really enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I may.
Action films are only as good as their villains are said a wiseman(Gene Siskel) and he was right. I have seen so many action films where the rest of the film was fine but missing that really good villain --there is one here in Kinkaid(Linden Ashby-left)
A decent story and good character development are key here and even though the payoff is what I expected I was still thrilled to see how it all turned out.

Thank you for reading this
