Retribution…watch complete movie. Fun action thriller

Retribution is an independent teen action thriller where six college kids go camping in the mountains and cross paths with a kidnapping in progress. What started as a weekend of wild partying, strip poker and skinny dipping turns into a fight for survival. A gang of brutal killers hunts the kids while the FBI is powerless to help. In the end people always get what they deserve.Written and directed by Steven R. Zellers

You can watch the complete movie below however it is broken up into 10 parts on You tube because of uploading and file size. You know the deal. Well if you ever tried to upload video you do.

As far as Retribution…There’s a couple of things you need to know. First up it was a low budget movie to start with, and my first crack at directing. Also because of the file size uploading thing the quality isn’t that great.

With that said I want you to know that I’m not apologizing for the movie. On the contrary, I think Retribution is still a great movie for what it is. It’s fast paced and fun with some excellent scenes and visuals. The storyline is solid and there are several great moments. I’ve seen much worse in the movie theaters.  All I ask is that you give it a fair chance before you pass judgement.  

Making a movie isn’t really that easy of a think to do.  As a matter of fact making a movie on this scale with almost zero money was almost impossible but we did it anyway. There were so many challenges along the way that I can’t even begin to tell you about.   Making a project this ambitious takes a lot of people working

together to create one piece of art.  Everyone including myself believed in the project and I am grateful that  I had the privilege of working with so many talented people on this movie.  Making Retribution was one of the greatest things I ever did in my life and I’m proud to have been a part of it.

R rated for language and brief partial nudity

Before you watch Retribution you might be asking why is this movie on You Tube?  We made Retribution in 2000 and for almost ten years the movie never got distribution.  That’s not really that big of a deal. Most independent movies never get distribution because the big mucky mucks in Hollywood that make the decisions wouldn’t know a good movie if it bit them in the ass.  

I have a whole stack of “good” screenplays that I’ve written over the years. I might not be the best writer in the world but I think I’m as good as the next guy. I’m growing old waiting on Hollywood so I’ve decided I’m not going to wait anymore. So basically that’s why I made the choice to put the movie on You Tube.  Otherwise no one would ever have a chance to see this movie and that seems like such a waste. I know everyone isn’t going to love Retribution but I also know a lot of people will. Like I said earlier a lot of talented people worked on this movie

and it’s sat on a shelf for long enough so here it is.

I posted it less than two days ago and already people are asking where they can buy the DVD.  I think that if this movie keeps getting hits at the present rate it’s only a matter of time.

Pull up a chair, grab you some popcorn. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy Retribution.
