The Austin-set thriller "Two Step" approaches tension a lot like the region's barbecue, with enough methodical, indirect heat to make for plenty of flavor when it's time to bite.
Alex R. Johnson's Texas-set neo-noir... begins slowly and surely before ratcheting up the tension to terrific effect.
A nasty, flawlessly acted little gem that goes deep inside its characters' psyches.
Hébert's terrifyingly electric performance keeps the heat turned up enough to make the bloody climax feel like relief.
There's a lot to admire in the slow-burning build of Texas ambiance and dialogue.
A slow-burn thriller with rich Texas flavor, Two Step reps a promising feature debut for writer-director Alex R. Johnson.
It's a tiny tale, this story of lost souls and escalating circumstances, but it's a tale well-told and beautifully shot.
Instead of the gore aspect, Johnson focuses on the relationships between the characters. It packs punches with a slow burn instead of constant action, making it more tantalizing.
Sharply written, unusually well-acted and well worth a look that it will be lucky to get.
Two Step is definitely a slow burn, but it announces its intentions early and settles into a definitive mood and tempo, and when the sudden bursts of violence do arrive (and they do), they are accompanied by an unexpected power.
One of the things I really admire about Two Step is that it isn't afraid to blaze its own trail. Though the film's set up as a simple home invasion thriller, there's a lot more going on.
Writer-director Alex R. Johnson's film is the rare thriller that resounds with an authentic ring of chaos.
