It comes at night, movie review (spoilers)

There are some movies that heavily rely on a big climax to make the whole thing work and ‘It comes at night’ is no exception. The movie is minimalist in it’s approach with only a few actors playing out a quasi post apocalyptic reality in one location. It’s set deep in the woods and there isn’t much information given about what has happened to the rest of the world or why they are in this situation.

Anybody who takes part in training, sparring or fighting should take note that an opponent will fall into pattern like behaviour, especially when tired, rocked or nervous. Finding gaps and spotting patterns is key to maximising the effect of technique power and speed. Brilliant video.
