Calibre

Zodiac Films

Calibre is an action based comedy in the style of the 80's buddy films, but shot in a more contemporary climate of film making. It revolves around our two lead actors 'Conrad' and 'Baker' who are gunning for the same contract. The problem is only one man can get the lucrative job. Considering their curriculum vitae, we are in for a more competitive form of competition as we quickly find out they are both professional killers.

Through a series of flashbacks we learn about the relationship between Conrad and Baker and the job that is on offer. With a view to working as a unit we are brought along on a comedic and violent ride and discover that their working union can only go so far and only one way. With some unusual and witty dialogue, shootouts, stunts and general mayhem calibre will blow you away.
