Short Film Spotlight: CODE 8

Welcome back to another installment of SHORT FILM SPOTLIGHT.  This week, we take a look at the brand new, amazing sci-fi film...CODE 8.

A brand new short sci-fi film has hit the web from CW stars Stephen Amell (Arrow) and his cousin Robbie Amell (Legends of Tomorrow).  This fantastic film tells the story of a young man with special powers (Robbie Amell) as he struggles to make ends meet and take care of his family.  He seeks out work as a day laborer, and when he gets stiffed by the man he's working for, takes rash action, which gets the police involved and from there, things go south.

Amell is great as always, and it was awesome seeing Sung Kang (Fast & Furious franchise) pop up as one of the police officers.  The story was compelling, and the visual effects were fantastic.  It kept me engaged and left me pining for more.

Stephen and Robbie are actually raising funds to turn this into a feature-length film, which I would absolutely love to see.  Head over to www.code8.com to check out more details about the film and to make a donation to get this film made.  They've raised almost $100,000 in just 12 hours (at least that what it was at the time of me writing this), and will definitely reach their goal with a day most likely.  

Definitely check out this short film and let me know what you thought of it in the comments.
