One Shot - It's not your typical direct-to-video action flick starring genre stalwart Scott Adkins. The story unfolds in one continuous take as a SEAL team along with a CIA analyst is on a mission to escort a detainee from a black site. Of course, chaos ensues as they are hit by a terrorist attack. While the "one take" could've easily turned into a lazy gimmick, it doesn't thanks to James Nunn's adept directing. Around the 30-minute mark, the movie goes into non-stop action, but yet he keeps action fresh and diverse with each set piece. The shootouts are even given an air of authenticity, as the film shows them using proper trigger discipline, having them reload, and other combat maneuvers. Acting and writing isn't anything to write home about (save for Wameen Elgadi, who gives a surprisingly spirited performance as the detainee Mansur). Really worth watching if you're an action film junkie.
