Yo Soy Un Hombre Loco is a tale of two assassins. One is the best, calling himself number one, and the other wants to be the best, but to do so he’ll have to earn it, by facing off and killing the current number one. After months of training, is Killer #2 ready to take on Killer #1?
This short film, made by LBP Stunts Chicago, has a somber tone to it, as we are first taken through a moment with both killers at work, ending lives and kicking ass as the fantastic score accompanies it, and the slow motion contributes well to the proceedings to help create a lyrical short film, and perhaps the music is in killer #1’s head, which makes sense as he dresses like a maestro and dances to a song only he can hear, and the effect works well. The fights are well staged, and the stuntmen did a good job with their choreography as well. The camera work is also a winner here, and never overdoes itself with odd angles. The camera shots taken never gets in the way of the action.
The story easy to follow and isn’t complicated, which is good for a short film such as this. Shawn Bernal does a great job as a sinister Number One, especially since he doesn’t say a word. Emmanuel Manzanares doesn’t have as much to do acting-wise, but is able to carry off the serious-killer-look.
Yo Soy Un Hombre Loco is a good no-budget/small budget short film that shows a duel between assassins and the victims they take out. Slick work here.
