STARRING: Noel Clarke, Colin O'Donoghue,
2012, 87 Minutes, Directed by:
it comes to fare such as Storage 24 – low-budget Alien rip-offs of the
sort you get to see on Syfy – then you must take what you can get.
An airplane crashes in London
and its top-secret cargo – a vicious captured alien – is set loose to hunt down
a group of disparate characters in a large storage facility.
No big surprises here plot- or
otherwise, but the movie at least tries to make some attempt at
characterization. Charlie (Doctor Who
star Noel Clarke) has just broken up with his girlfriend (Antonia
Campbell-Hughes) who is having an affair with his best friend. All very soap
opera but at least the screenwriters tried to inject some kind of drama into the
proceedings. Acting is variable and production values (music, sets, etc.) are
The visual effects including
that of the alien monster is okay, but the movie is tension-free and not
particularly scary either.
Storage 24 is B-movie
fodder ideal for low-expectation late evening TV viewing when you can’t find
anything else on the other channels, but not much else.
