VERDICT – 4/5
1) A presidential candidate is assassinated, and within the next 3 years, 6 of the witnesses to the killing have mysteriously died. A newspaper reporter, who is also one of the witnesses, begins a personal quest to get to the bottom of this vast conspiracy.
2) An intense political thriller which highlights a fictional multinational corporation called Parallax Corporation behind major professional assassinations.
3) The screenplay is gripping and fast-paced. The climax is aptly pessimistic which shows that the Parallax Corporation is deeply rooted in the system which a petty reporter can’t beat.
