If You Liked Locke You Just May ...

Tom and Melony, a married Australian couple living in Los Angeles, set out from their home in Santa Monica to meet friends for dinner in Hollywood. It's a Friday night - naturally, they hit traffic. By the time they arrive, their marriage is over.

That's essentially the film's plot. LOL! I sincerely hope I haven't spoiled it for anyone.

Looking at Impasse's IMDB page, it's difficult to tell that this film had even finished production, there is so little detail. But clearly the film has suffered distribution issues, which have contributed towards its minute audience. (At time of writing, it is still lacking an IMDB meter score.) My 1/10 rating should serve as a warning to potential viewers. It is just not worth your time, though ironically, the best aspect of the movie is, at an 84 minute running time, its brevity.

Largely a two-hander with featured actors Cameron Daddo and Angie Milliken sitting in a car for around 85% of the movie's length, just engaging in an extended domestic, culminating laboriously and unsurprisingly in a realistic, but dull finale. It does draw some obvious comparisons with the earlier overated solo Tom Hardy outing, Locke. The saving grace of that film was that it had Tom Hardy in the driver's seat (though why he felt he needed to adopt a Welsh accent for the role, I'll never quite understand).

Director/Writer/Producer Michael Bond comically tries to pass off Melbourne, Australia as Los Angeles and fails ignominiously. (Clearly having roadside signs saying "Melbourne", doesn't help the cause. Neither does tossing in a "hippied-up" supporting Bruce Davidson, in what amounts to little more than a cameo.)

Films such as Impasse, need to have a far more dramatic, less predictable storyline to maintain our attention over the course. Unfortunately from the first couple of (literally hundreds of )close-ups of the actors' faces , we suspect the narrative outcome. Nothing that occurs over the next 80 minutes or so, causes us to change our thoughts. For a film whose action focuses so crucially on the interiors of a car, it's disappointingly pedestrian.
