review by
Mike Haberfelner

For the past 10 years, Braden Vasco (Steve Baran) has been the most dependable footsoldier of drug kingpin Stavros Zane (Thomas Newman) - and suddenly Stavros has to find out Braden's an undercover cop. Of course, he does what any good villain would to: Find out Braden's family to torture and kill them, record everything on a phone, and show it to Braden before torturing and killing him as well. Only Braden, despite seeing everyone he has ever loved being slaughtered, doesn't go down willingly, and he's skilled enough to turn a dead end situation in his favour and shoot it out with Stavros' gang. But it's once Braden has fought himself out of Stavros' lair, he has to come to the cruel conclusion that somebody on the force (on his side) must have betrayed him - and understandably, Braden wants revenge for the death of his family ...


Five Minute Rush is a very effective genre short, one that does away with most narrative frills and goes to the jugular pretty quickly, thus telling its story that could have easily filled a feature film at breakneck speed, leaving the audience with scarcely enough time to breathe in the process. That it still hits a chord with the audience isn't thanks to its pace though but to its well-structured script, a directorial effort with an eye for the vital, and a really well put-together action sequence as the film's centerpiece.

Well worth a look for sure!
