Another good brit gangster movie, this time in 3D. I can't understand why Baseline has such a low rating. There is not really something bad to say about it, maybe the special effects could have been more spectacular. Baseline 3D had only 2 million budget so the special effects can be explained by this.
Still, the violent scenes are really great, even brutal. There are a few scenes which are quite violent but are very believable, the realism is a credit to the film. I'm not usually a fan of violent films, but compared to some of the really big budget British gangster films made recently Baseline certainly shines.
The direction from Brendon O'Loughlin was fast paced, supported by an exciting musical sore.
The acting was excellent, especially Freddie Connor.
The Baseline is the centre of the East London grime club scene and the queue regularly stretches around the block. Danny works on the door - breaking up fights and managing drunk kids. However, when he rescues Terry, the club owner and local gang leader, from a hitman, Danny is suddenly plunged deep into an underworld he had tried so hard to avoid. Danny is promoted to manager, but only on the condition that he turns a blind eye to the shady goings on both on and off the dance-floor. Danny and his girlfriend Jessica dream of setting up their own club, but Danny is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice when he has to choose between loyalty, morality and his own dreams of escape.
Seeing Baseline in 3D can be good for a change. No unbelievable special effects, but real life violent situations.
