"The Channel" - movie review

"THE CHANNEL: A Bullet-Riddled Action Spectacle Lacking Depth"

The Channel, directed by Willam Kaufman and starring Clayne Crawford and Max Martini, delivers an all-out shoot-out fest that prioritizes firepower over substance. While it's hard not to appreciate the adrenaline rush from a 20-minute shootout scene, the film's weakening storyline becomes glaringly obvious.

One of the major drawbacks of The Channel is that it didn't matter how most of the cast fared in the film. They were either killed off too soon for us to get to know them or portrayed as meek characters, making it difficult to invest emotionally in their journeys. As a result, the film lacks the necessary character development to make us truly care about their fates.

The Channel proudly embraces its loud and explosive nature, catering to an audience that relishes action-packed sequences. It's not a film for those who are sensitive to discussions surrounding gun rights, as NRA fans will undoubtedly find themselves drawn to the intense firearms display throughout.

One commendable aspect of the film is the way it showcases the great choreography, particularly in how it distinguishes between the levels of the assailants. Watching army rangers execute bank heists with impressive precision is an engaging visual spectacle, regardless of the story's overall depth.

In the end, The Channel falls short of delivering a well-rounded experience. While it undoubtedly excels in showcasing big guns and shoot-up scenes, there is a noticeable lack of substance in between. The film receives a rating of 2 out of 5, primarily for its high-octane action and impressive display of firepower.
