'The Three Lancers' have been hard at work for the past two years creating this imaginative film, Orb. Set in a parallel universe in the year 2049, an alien race known only as the orbs have invaded the earth laying waste to the combined militaries of the U.N . The story follows a couple of English resistance soldiers fighting in the English countryside against the relentless orbs.
The concept of the orbs is great and they've been beautifully rendered in a few scenes. The score is also superb and really helps immerse you in this hopeless world. The acting however certainly needs some more energy in places and can sometimes make a scene feel too long. However 'The Three Lancers' speciality is in production, and acting ability will come with experience.
Make no mistake, this is one of the most depressing films we've seen but that's clearly deliberate on Jake Bentleys (writer) behalf as this film makes no attempt at a 'happy ever after' ending. That said, it's still one of the more creative films out there and a few rather surprising plot twists will make this a memorable watch.
