Stifling, the best compliment for a thriller, while entertaining, "Causality" is presented as a disruptive product. A psychological thriller, which is filmed in a single sequence shot, is a critique of the current justice system

Initial intrigue turns to tedium

The initial setup for this movie is intriguing - a woman kidnapped but by whom and to what end? However the writer and director squander this solid base with a plot that is random and unfocussed. The film just drifts throughout and what plot development there is doesn't make much sense.

As for the this being lauded for being shot in a single sequence, if that's the best thing about the movie clearly there's not much else to it.

Do Not Miss This

Wow I was surprised to find this film on Amazon randomly. It's a perfect thriller. Nothing needs to be said about it, it's just amazing film making.

The theme is nothing new but the way is made in one sequence makes it worthwhile. I can't even imagine the preparation that gone into making this film.

Maybe written by a 5th grader

Except for the wow factor of a single camera take, everything else is terrible and dumb. The plot is just all over the place and was so dumb, I thought I lost brain cells. Halfway through, I watched it on fast forward and even then it was dumb.

Intriguing and entertaining

"Causalidad" is a low budget thriller from Argentina about a woman who is kidnapped after being drugged in a bar. Even if the story doesn't bring anything new to the genre, the film works with good acting and a superb script, plus it was filmed in one sequence without cuts.

It is recommended for those viewers that enjoy a smart story despite a low budget production.

7 / 10

surprising good

Expected a very low budget film with bad acting.

Got a moderate low budget film with pretty good acting.

The story and acting kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and I really had no idea how it was going to turn out.

Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys b movie thrillers.
