MATT and ANNA are a young couple living in London. Anna is starting her career and knows what she wants, whilst Matt is still struggling to find his purpose in life. On the surface they are happy but tensions are beginning to mount.

Then one morning masked thugs break into the flat and kidnap Anna before assaulting Matt, locking him into a mysterious vest and leaving him a mobile phone. Matt is told the vest contains a package which he must deliver by following instructions issued to him via the mobile phone. If he fails, tries to seek help, or deviates from their instructions, they will kill Anna.

Over the course of one day Matt has to make his way across London in a desperate bid to save his girlfriend as a host of characters attempt to derail him from his mission.




"Randall pulls off the task of constructing a socially conscious thriller about a society whose very sense of what's real has become overly saturated by media-based entertainment. There's rarely a moment in the movie that doesn't serve its purpose, resulting in a motion picture that is both viscerally appealing for the casual viewer and intellectually stimulating for the attentive viewer."
"Despite the film's high-minded aspirations, it never forgets to be entertaining. Be it hanging out in one of the creepier Karaoke bars I've seen or foot chases through a crowded mall. Randall never leaves the audience bored or unattended."
"Director Adam Randall keeps the action tightly paced and the dialogue to a refreshing minimum, helping to heighten Matt's growing isolation. That's enough to earn Level Up a few slots in your memory card."
Pete Vonder Haar, VILLAGE VOICE
"The answer arrives in the form of Adam Randall's LEVEL UP, a high-concept thriller wherein slacker Matt (Josh Bowman) is torn from his videogame existence to engage in a nightmarish game of blackmailed carnage. Co-written by Gary Young — the man behind Michael Caine's revenger HARRY BROWN— the film's full of darkly humorous moments due to its star being unable to flip that "killing machine" switch."
