If now came the masterpiece of beginning at least was a series of just worthy films, the creation of the Commonwealth of great Britain with South Africa, I wouldn't noticed. Just because it is absolutely not filed: name already where it was, the actors hardly at the hearing, the poster like someone's avatar, abstract boring, I never saw a on the page KP and Director no list of "best films". Yes, the rating at the film 6;with pennies that in most cases is a boundary line between full UniLine and something more or less. You know, the groundwork for success well are very meager.

But when there is nothing to look at the aid as these "6 of a penny". In this time I lost. Because in the film there is one very curious feature, with which, on my view, the team managed.

The trick lies in that one same event plays out in parallel as would two dimensions: in one the hero goes to the left, into another one just in the same the time is right. And us (sometimes even in the split-screen) simultaneously demonstrate at this advance preparing to the upcoming intersection of two paths. Task, agree, complex. Fail it, due to a mediocre cast and neimenityh Director, was simple. But did it! And it was very interesting to watch up to the end!

Of course, such basis is unremarkable and their costs. Actors no flashed, quite a large number of clichés and predictable moves, no innovations, revelations, special techniques or something like that. It's pretty mediocre, but the dynamics of narrative music gives.

In short, under beer in the evening, if you want to see "something" will go great! Yeah and just for variety, you can.

Loved the Thai actor Sheridan in the movie "Joe" and"mud", and I have seen then the Hollywood star, now he is such is not, but it has all the chance he slowly walks to it. Actually actors are the best part of the movie "the Bypass" which I have looked. Let those in order

The plot is very unusual, and it still one of the pros of the film. for by an unusual montage and narration, the whole meaning is understood only within the end of the film. There are unexpected plot twists, he actually the end is a little disappointing, so as soon as the viewer realizes that happened, the main character, has their own truth...

Beat very thoroughly the situation in the film. Only what is all led...

The end can not be called good or bad, although much of bad, but this is life, it is different.

The camera work is very good, it seemed that the operator was made by himself Maestro Lubezki.

A lot about this film is hard to say. The most important thing that it is a good Thriller that shows the cruelty of life, and how easy to make a mistake, making the wrong decision.

Hidden meaning in the film is a lot you can find. And what people blame each other for not even being know in that people take serious decisions not all things considered how the trail well and most importantly, that do not communicate, do not tell each other about their problems. This film is definitely worth viewing

The mother and stepfather of Harper, the main character of the film, got in a car accident. On stepfather neither a scratch, and mother of the boy in a deep coma lying in the hospital. The situation is severe and tragic, that and speak, but all compounded by the suspicions of the young man that his step-father can be dirty hand and the crash is to be so and random. One night, diligently pouring his sorrows in alcohol, Harper meets certain johnny and in the course of drunken revelations hires someone for the murder of his stepfather. For Harper these the conversations were just idle chatter, but here to johnny, who urgently need money, all turned out to be extremely serious about what it and tells the young man, appearing in his threshold following morning.

After a small prologue "Bypass" takes place in the quarry, offering the viewer a rather unusual move: in front of Harper are going to have to make a difficult choice, and the narrative is divided into two stories — one guy agreed to kill his stepfather, and in the second, johnny was refused. Visually it's played with the most banal split-screen, but sometimes looks quite good, especially in the moments when the Director tries to fit vidshot only half of the screen. Yeah and anyway, narrative point of view, this technique is also quite interesting, though sometimes at the same time to watch two scenes a little difficult, especially with regard to their of detail.

This, in fact, is the main problem "Bypass" — the film is too overwrought, and no devil in them lies. Christopher Smith, desiring as effectively as possible to distract your audience from one of the two biggest twists of the picture, piled well so much is useless for narrative small things that at some point, she cease to distract, and begins openly to confuse and annoy. To fortunately, finally popping out your twist, narrative comes in normal on "Bypass" looks like an ordinary road movie, however, is not too inventive. The second twist occurred in a few minutes before the end of painting, the time or that, in General, is not affect I too understand why it needed. Although, perhaps in this was the purpose — show that throughout the incident not make sense, not know.

There are questions and to the moral component of the "Bypass". This, of course, not  the"Cream of Hackney" in which is all the characters were vile scum and villains, but and Harper, and johnny, and cherry, the main characters in the movie, the language is not dare call it positive guys. The Director seems to be trying to represent them in that light, so that the audience began to empathize with, but turns yourself. In the end, let all the main characters have become victims of circumstances, but how to do one or another situation they chose themselves. And every time their choice was far from the norms of conventional morality. Yeah and how can the only good thing Harper to compensate them evil? Not think.

But enough about the cons, time pros, let them here is not so much. First, I liked the selection of actors and their game. The most dramatic load, for obvious reasons, lies on the shoulders of Ty Sheridan, guy it is easy to cope. Emory Cohen, who played johnny, is also quite convincing, and in the scene of the meeting with the thug Frank and is shining. But here Bel Pauli, which you may have seen in a very good independent Comedy "Carrie Pilby", and in the "Bypass" plays cherry, all the more complicated. With the actress clearly cope, regularly giving the desired emotions in certain scenes, but the contact came up with some controversial, on my opinion. The main problem is that she looks like a good girl, which drops every second man, and it pulls a mistrust its history, why to take the character seriously well nothing happens.

Secondly, I have already hinted above, I liked the picture. Even if you don't take the calculation of split-screen, all made in a very decent level. Need to take into account the nuance most of the events of the film takes place at the road Vegas, T. E. the desert simply put, and to remove such locations without to the viewer under the end is not like the abundance of yellow — not so simple task. And the team responsible for the visual style of "Circumvention" with this challenge.

Summarizing, we can say the following: "the Bypass" — middling Thriller in the guise of a road movie, offering the viewer only one large and cool twist, and for twist, it seems, and removed. If I right, why the main intrigue of Christopher Smith was placed in the middle of the film, and not end the killing interest in the view a good half of the paintings remains a mystery. However, to write off the "Bypass" in the scrap all not worth single view, it is quite decent. Not more.
