"Jon Jacobs and J.C. Brandy (Dogstar) star in Prometheus Bound, another release from indie house, Zero Productions, which borrows its title from Aeschylus' 460 BC adaptation of the Greek myth surrounding the last of the Titans and saviour of mankind from the Olympians. While there are vague elements common to both works, and a reference later in the picture, the film is in no other way related, despite what the sales blurb suggests. As expected for a very low budget film, it is a bit rough around the edges, but manages to hold together as an effective psychological thriller. Journalist Alex Kenna (Daniel Tisman) is a man haunted by precognition when he returns to his old stomping grounds. After setting up camp at the house of his former schoolmate, Deacon (Jacobs), he becomes infatuated with a young, wheelchair-bound woman (Brandy), ostracized from the community after the death of her former boyfriend. Despite the warnings from his friends, Alex pursues a relationship, and after her initial suspicions that he is just out for a story, Kathleen accepts Alex's sincerity, and the two begin an affair. As they become more and more involved, the secrets of her past begin to come into focus, and a bitter jealousy flares that sets into play a deadly game of cat and mouse. With an intriguing storyline and well-timed revelations, the screenplay by first time director Wic Coleman and star J.C Brandy is fairly tight, though there were a few places that didn't really make sense, based on how the characters were developed. However, the writing does provide the needed red herrings to conceal what is coming next. The performances for the most part are strong, however there is some emotional inconsistency between scenes and a few were over done. Suspense is maintained while the characters are being detailed and the love story presented, but in classic tradition there comes that moment where what the audience has known is cast in a new light, building the set up for the climax. The resolution is imaginative and, despite some foreshadowing, unexpected.-Jeff Ulmer - Digitally Obsessed.com"
