Information and Film Reviews for Real Time: Siege at Lucas Street Market the Movie

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Deals with an armed robbery at a convenience store, which escalates into a hostage situation. What makes "Real Time" unique is that the story is played out through in-store security video, police-car cameras, and TV news footage. While this approach is interesting, it also depersonalizes the action, deflating the drama. At times, it feels like an extended episode of "Cops." On DVD, every scene can be viewed from a second angle, giving the movie the extra kick that it needs. Unfortunately, the inventiveness behind the camera never matches the on-screen action.
