Loving pastiche of action movies from talented cast
This article is from 2011.
One for action movie fans, this Cambridge theatre group gleefully ransacks the genre, and all its drug-dealing, wire-wearing, daughter-kidnapping clichés. Written by Footlights veterans, the hammy nonsense is enhanced with parkour shadow puppets, Bond-style single entendres, and nods to Inception and Bourne. Strong acting in a deliberately ropey plot.
