Christian Sesma’s introduction into the indie film world is a much more interesting story than you’d expect. Formerly a restauranteur who apparently wound up becoming a filmmaker after “10 Minute Film School” by Robert Rodriguez, Sesma has since become a fairly prolific DTV auteur. Also known as Pandora’s Box, Doomsday Device is his latest work.
Simple premise: an FBI agent has to save the world after unwittingly unleashing the apocalypse. Starring a solid if unknown cast, Sesma takes the best of what’s admittedly a low budget piece and winds up making a solid if unremarkable piece.
It’s enjoyable for what it is, low budget thrills, and doesn’t aspire beyond that. It’s a solid TV movie, which it was released as, and is worth it if your cable provider can let you watch it.
Nothing of importance.
