Epilogue


At the end of his greatest adventure, Skillman has vanquished his nemesis, recovered the priceless artifact, and saved his latest lover from certain doom.

‘Epilogue’ is the most epic adventure film that you have never seen, and probably never will. The film starts at the end of Skillman’s greatest adventure, where he has vanquished his nemesis, recovered the priceless artifact, and saved his latest lover from certain doom. But as he struggles to figure out what comes next, his lady begins to realize her confident, capable man hasn’t the first clue what to do once the guns are down.

Certainly one of the most anti-climactic films you will ever see, and one that brings up questions and answers you would never ask yourself: What does a hero do after he’s accomplished everything he set out to do?

As a devoted fanatic of the blockbusters of my youth, I’ve always wondered what happens after the adventure is over. How does the good guy feel when there’s nothing left to find and no one left to kill? Good? Guilty? Bored? We know there has to be a break up if he’s single in the sequel. I wanted to see what that “happily ever after” might look like. Even heroes have to do laundry sometimes.

‘Epilogue’ is brilliant in how it shows you the opposite of what you would expect to see in an adventure film. A strong cinematography with an imposing and believable “ending” sets the stage for the opposite and never present boring and mundane aftermath. Directed by Dylan Allen, he uses an array of clichés tampered from the adventure genre that we’ve seen oh so many times before. Your hero played marvellously by Chris Henry Coffey, is the perfect anti-Harrison Ford of the 21st century.
