We’ve been living in what feels like an apocalyptic world for quite some time now, so you may be wondering why you should consume media of that nature. However, Hammered 2.0 is worth seeing.
Hammered 2.0 follows Miranda (Melissa Murray-Mutch) and Dennis (Jason Thompson), the apocalyptic-prone couple from last year’s Hammered. While the storyline and script may leave some confused, especially those who may have never seen last year’s digital exclusive, the performances definitely won’t.
Murray-Mutch’s more serious delivery was a perfect match to Thompson’s more witty and light-hearted character. John Riley O’Handley’s performance as Greg is also worth pointing out as a great source of comedic relief to the apocalyptic atmosphere.
On top of Hamilton references, like Copps Coliseum in addition to others, another element you won’t be able to miss is the camera work. The cinematography in Hammered 2.0 is exquisite and captures the characters, and the overall feeling of the piece of work so wonderfully. Even if you’ve never seen Hammered, the cinematography in Hammered 2.0 alone will leave you itching to keep watching to find out what happens next.
