The Aggression Scale was exactly the sort of midnight film I was looking for at SXSW - fast violent and satisfying. Well worth the sleep deprivation I dealt with the day after seeing it.
Two teens (with issues) go to war against a team of professional hit men over a bundle of cash. An adrenaline fueled, morally questionable ride with the impact of a shotgun blast to the chest. Which coincidentally is literally how the film opens. Do you really need to know more?
Right - fine......
If you're looking for a straight to the point midnight film experience I believe it'll scratch that itch in a very satisfying way. Probably my favorite of the midnighter films I saw at SXSW. Not gonna be an Oscar nomination coming out of it for anyone. But these days I think they only give those out for movies about movies anyways. I could probably say a lot more. But I respect The Aggression Scale for being lean and to the point. So I'll try and be the same.
I dug this film. 'nuff said.
