A couple of cops try to piece together a seemingly open-and-shut case regarding diamonds and of course, murder by viewing the scene of the crime through 20 various camera angles of the security system in the house.
It's difficult to say whether or not this movie compares to anything else i've seen, because this one really isn't like anything i've ever seen.
The flick breaks down like this: 90 minutes of angle after angle of the same scenes, with a couple of voice actor 'cops' going over their theories and ideas as to the truth behind the case. The premise is intriguing, and is carried off well enough. The acting in the scenes is decent, although the voice actors are sort of hammy and clearly sound like a couple of actors in a soundproof recording studio.
That being said, the movie's actually pretty neat. I wouldn't watch it again, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to someone, but it's quite well done for what it is. The story keeps you guessing, and you're never quite sure what the truth is. So, the movie works. It sets out to keep you guessing, and offer a unique experience, and succeeds on those fronts.
Extras are scarce on this one.
We get a whopping ten minute feature called The 22nd Eye: The Making of 21 Eyes which is pretty bland, filmmakers and actors quickly talking about their processes and how the film came together. No film's 'making of' can be done justice in 10 minutes!
Other than that, we get The Heist (the case footage), from 5 camera angles. This is a neat little feature that is fun to watch after the movie ends, where you can catch 'ohh, I see' moments you might not have picked up on after the movie's been all solved for you.
Finally we get a trailer, and a still gallery.
