Plot
Richard Tyson, Scout Taylor-Compton, and Billy Wirth give good performances in a film with a great hook and a seemingly low budget. The story deals, indirectly, with mind transfer, and it’s interesting to see which detours the script takes from its premise to fill its promise. Better go with the flow, because the science fiction elements are secondary. This is more of a crime thriller.
A touching relationship between a homeless war veteran and teenage girls unfolds organically. Damien Chinappi plays the veteran. He has the widest arc of all characters. The villains do things villains do. The teens have depth, but they’re catalysts. You can’t really second-guess a film like this one, but don’t expect fireworks either. It’s rather low-key.
This is written and directed by Harley Wallen, who managed to combine various generations of somewhat incompatible characters, with different backgrounds and status, and built a story around them, which isn’t something we often see. The most interesting thing Eternal Code makes us experience, is having us guess how two major unrelated plot points will converge.
