When detective Ben (Clayne Crawford) is investigating a crime scene, an abortion clinics blown up by religious fanatics, he is taken out by a second explosion the terrorists trigger to create maximum damage. Later when Ben wakes up in hospital, he's surprised to find himself virtually unscathed - but there's something very odd about the hospital he's at: For one, it's almost empty, no patients, no doctors, almost no personnel, the elevators don't work, and all the exits are blocked ... and whatever he does to get out of here, his superior Captain Miller (Mykelti Williamson) appears out of nowhere to hold him back. And when Ben finally finds a watchman (Gary Grubbs) willing to help him, the watchman is brutally gunned down. Later a nurse (Chelsea Bruland) violently attacks Ben, and when Ben tells this to Captain Miller, he seems to know more than he ought to. It also seems that a religious zealot, Daniel (Ethan Embry), is trying to take over the hospital, and he somehow brainwashes more and more people into following him. It also seems his prime target is to take out Ben - and Ben is less and less sure whether Captain Miller is or is not in league with Daniel. That said, there also phantoms roaming the corridors at times which seem to help Ben, but they appear and disappear too randomly to really find out more about them. However, the longer this goes on, the less sure is Ben that he's alive even or in some sort of afterlife - but alive or not, he knows he has to fight for everything that's dear to him or end up doomed forever ...

 

Convergence is a mighty interesting piece of genre cinema as it avoids falling into any kind of formula but manages to tell an engaging story with more surprising plottwists than a dozen of cookie-cutter films. And yet, within the context of the film, all seems very plausible, also thanks to a well-structured script, a nicely paced execution that also finds time for quiet, emotional scenes, while there's still plenty of suspense, action and violence to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Plus a directorial effort that puts an emphasis on atmosphere and an uniformly competent cast don't hurt one bit, either.

Really nice!
