5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Indie Aug. 15 2008
By LA Shppr Grl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie was a nice surprise. Better than I thought it would be for a small indie. Some great extras features too that you almost never find with low budget films. Beautiful cinematography and excellent pacing, it's more of a drama/suspense film than an action/thriller.

1.0 out of 5 stars A hack script shot poorly with terrible actors May 19 2012
By James Beswick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw Juncture at a film festival in San Rafael and it truly ranks as one of the worst films I've seen in a long time. Given that indie festival attendees are generally routing for the movies they attend, by the end the entire audience was less interested in the Q&A with film-makers and more in getting out the door as fast as possible.

Juncture's basic problem is that it's a hack script that's shot poorly with terrible actors. The story focuses upon Anna - a woman with terminal brain cancer who decides to improve the world by killing bad guys before she dies. This is a new spin on the La Femme Nikita concept but whereas Nikita's background and character were developed, Anna is a two-dimensional drawing - essentially she has a gun and a major headache. It's such a huge leap to assume that anyone with a terminal illness wants to elevate their status to 'vigilante' that it really never takes off from there.

Kristine Blackport is not good at acting. In close-ups where good actors can convey subtle emotions, she tends to convey blinking and staring. I'm not sure whether it's her fault or the director's but it pulls the rug from any emotional connection the audience has. The directing and camera work is uneven and wouldn't pass in even a basic TV show, as is the sound engineering that leaves our hero mumbling and the music comparatively too loud.

I hate to slam indie films because it's difficult to raise the money and make the movie but this is undoubtedly one of the worst I've seen and I can't forgive the fact that it's practically unwatchable due to the complete lack of quality on any level.

3.0 out of 5 stars a unique way of making a "real difference"... Sept. 28 2010
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Juncture (2007) is an interesting and provocative drama that centers around Anna Carter (Christine Blackport). In her 20's, she is executive director of the Lamont Foundation, a philanthropic organization. Anna has a terminal brain tumor, and has just a few months to live. With an extremely short term perspective, she has decided that the best way to "help", is to kill those that perpetrate crimes.

Anna's job takes her to various places across the country. Often travelling on a private jet, she apparently is able to bring firearms with her. While in town on business, she also squeezes in time for some vigilante justice, after having carefully researched the case, and concluding that her victim deserves to die. Whether by violence or other means, Anna has the will and resolve to see that "justice" is done. Her actions separate her from society, and the drive to complete her mission, affects her closest personal relationships.

It might be fair to assume that before the tumor changed her life, Anna was something of a do-gooder. If so, it is clear is that this is no longer the case. She has chosen a dangerous course of action, and is determined to see it through. Violence is part of her past, as her family was killed in a home invasion. Orphaned, she was rescued by Jonathan Lamont (John Hutton), and later joined his foundation. Romance comes into her life in the form of Dr. Michael Reese (Bill LeVasseur), but mere love won't keep Anna from continuing her mission, keeping her activities secret from her best friend Chloe (Elizabeth Rose) and her mentor Jonathan, as the pain in her head continues to increase. When she stumbles, and the law closes in on her, events take some unexpected turns, that sends Anna on a very personal mission.

Director James Seale had positive experiences shooting his previous film Throttle (2005) in Denver. Much of Juncture is also shot in Denver, and features many local actors, including star Christine Blackport, who makes her feature film debut. Blackport is far from an action hero type, but manages to bring some toughness to the role. Juncture is pretty dark, and remains uncompromisingly so, as the character Anna Carter, isn't sweetened to be more likeable. The vigilante thing may not be too believable, but Anna's imperfections help to make the character more real, as she botches up an attempt to send a priest to meet his maker, and her careless with another victim almost costs her life.

The film features a fairly comprehensive making of featurette, and an informative and fun commentary track with director Searle, producer Kevin Duncan, director of photography Richard Lerner, and a very enthusiastic Christine Blackport. Lots of fun facts are revealed, as quite a lot was accomplished on a modest budget.

Juncture is more of a tale of suspense, and examination of morality, rather than a shoot em up. There are some issues with story, which certainly could have been tighter, but it mostly holds your interest. The action scenes, while not always plausible, are mostly well done. If the subject of vigilantism tickles your fancy, you may want to take a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't look away from the screen Feb. 24 2009
By William Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I popped the DVD in late one night to get some preview extras before I went to bed. I ended up watching the whole film right to the end. It's not too often that a film can pull me in that easily.
