The idea for „Level Up“ is pretty nice and only the Trailer has misled a lot of potential for a really exciting film. In UK, the film starts at 26. August, for our latitudes is unfortunately no launch date announced. Here is the synopsis:
A deadbeat gamer’s girlfriend is kidnapped. Her kidnappers keep in contact with him by phone, issuing increasingly ludicrous and dangerous challenges he must complete to keep her alive, forcing him to fight his way across London. When he discovers who kidnapped her and why, he learns he is part of a game far larger than himself. But he still has to get her back.
The high concept action thriller shows a hidden, sometimes terrifying – and often outright bizarre – side of London. With its blend of humor, action, and terror; real, flawed human characters; and a city both familiar and unseen; LEVEL UP is a unique and bold piece of British cinema by debut feature filmmaker Adam Randal.
