Terminal Invasion Reviews
As convicted murderer, Jack, being transferred, Campbell gives a spirited performance, one devoid of lots of his usual schtick, which makes it even more impressive. With some good lines such as "You don't have to worry about who I killed before, just whom I'll kill next," he really owns it, and brings the movie some much needed, and surprising, gravitas. He doesn't do any slapstick, or make the tone any different than what it should be- dire, paranoid, and suspicious.
A few other stand outs include Chase Masterson, as the charter pilot, and female lead. She holds up well against the murderer, and proves to be quite tough. C. David Johnson as a businessman who spirals out of control is very well too. Rest of the cast is decent, with no one sticking out as particularly bad.
Cummingham navigates efficiently, and makes the most of a small budget. While he isn't the most impressive, he does hold the tension together nicely, and uses the small set in a few creative ways, like when they decide to go through the luggage scanner to prove they are human. The way he shoots it, just with a hard angle dividing those who have gone, and those you haven't, with the biggest objectors scattered across the upper half of the divide. It works well, and when the big reveal happens, he handles it well.
