Ian Truitner’s “Teleios” offers an intriguing combination of psychological Thriller and Science Fiction. The psychological aspect engage the audiences within the closing minutes to Act I. IMDB.com categorizes the film as an Action, Sci-Fi. Yet, only the latter is correct. The Action genre takes a passenger seat in this film. “Teleios” offers a casual approach to story telling. The plot builds with tension and development. Ian Truitner penned and directed “Teleios” and displays remarkable skill to avoid clichéd narration.
Presented in “Teleios” is a visual aesthetic that seems inspired by Gene Roddenberry’s creation. The influence is evident with the cast of characters and environment design. Glen Schofield’s third person shooter comes to mind while watching the film. Cryptic messages across walls and unexplained psychosis seems to be a borrowed influence. Yet, “Teleios” does not mirror concepts. Truitner sets his latest production apart with creativity and individualism.
“Teleios” features awe inspiring computer generated visuals. The film is CGI heavy yet special emphasis went into creating a sense of realism. Audiences will appreciate the excellence in visual craftsmanship displayed in Ian Truitner’s production.
The story has a structure built on the typical “rescue mission gone awry” format. This time tested film concept has seen success and failed attempts with its interpretation. Ian Truitner succeeds in presenting originality to an already crafted film concept. “Teleios” features well structured characters. Intertwining sub-plots are also presented with fluidity. “Teleios” is engaging and has a rich story that opens the possibility for sequels.
The acting treads into the realm of B-movie convention. Yet, the on-screen chemistry between the characters blends into a gratifying performance.
The interior design of the deep space mining vessel Atromitos is too perfect. It is obvious the intent is to stray from common science fiction expression. Yet, the interior doesn’t express the story surrounding this interplanetary vehicle. Specific conceptual attention could have created the illusion of a construction vehicle as opposed to a luxury ship.
