The 2030s: Archeologist David (Joshua Davis) is hired to go on a dig to Sibiria with the army - only to find out his presence is just facade, and the army's secretly looking for some kind of secret weapon ... but then the soldiers start shooting at each other as if taken over by some invisible force, and David just runs, despite not at all being familiar with the terrain - and eventually reaches a hut where he finds a beauty in a bikini, Inanna (Emily Coleman), locked in a cage. She says she's kept here by a psycho, but he saves her ... and then it gets hazy for him, until he wakes up in a hospital in Boston, USA, in a bed next to hers, his wife Kristen (Melantha Blackthorne) by his side. Inanna and Kristen take an instant dislike to one another, but David doesn't care too much, in a few days he's out of the hospital and he doesn't have to see Inanna ever again and can go on that long-promised extended vacation to the Bermudas with his wife ... or so he thinks, as Kristen out of the blue tells him she's pregnant, and while he had been told he's sterile and yet she insists she hasn't cheated on him - well, that's a bit much to handle ... and then he meets Inanna again, out on the streets one night, and she seems to be hell-bent on making him her boyfriend - to the point where she tries to get his best friend (Ray Hryb) to kill Kristen.

There is something more sinister going on on a larger political stage, too, the entity Gilgamesh (Oselito Joseph), who has kept Inanna, a sort-of deity, entrapped for more than a thousand years, has come to the USA to kill everybody involved with the mission, the US is under immediate threat from a meteorite, and in regards of all of this, Soviet agent Lars (Richard Chandler) finds it rather easy to personally assassinate the indecisive American president (Peter Morse) who has turned on the Russians for help, torture relevant information out of the vice president (Alexandra Cipolla), make the USA a part of the USSR, and ... make quite the same mistakes as they did. As everybody else, he thinks he can make Gilgamesh and Inanna make a pawn in his game, not realizing he's way outclassed, and the whole confrontation creates the most unlikely of heroes ...

 

Admittedly, Gilgamesh is a movie that blends motives of science fiction, fantasy and political thriller, with elements of horror and action cinema thrown in, rather wildly ... but it does so in a very imaginative and wildly entertaining way. Basically the film might not always make perfect sense, especially if you take it too seriously, but it really shows the joy of storytelling behind all of it: Here's a wild story for sure, but it flows so well, and despite lofty concepts on a low budget even because writer/director Richard Chandler is really into the story he tells, has the desire to entertain and brings the necessary craftmanship to deliver on a (tight) budget. And add to that a pretty good cast, and you'll really like this one!
