Submerged (2005) (part 2 of 6)

Cut to the aftermath of the carnage. A guy in a suit asks how he should report this, speculating that it was a drug cartel related incident. Another man in a suit, who I guess is his superior, scoffs at the idea.

Just then, a woman with a strong resemblance to WNBA star Lisa Leslie interrupts and exposits that they’re dealing with mind control. To explain this strange concept of “mind control”, she pretty much uses the same words heard during the opening credits. Sadly, we don’t get to hear anything else from her briefing. I had good money on her making an analogy involving layup drills and wind sprints.

We then get four different shots of the same helicopter, while drums thunder on the soundtrack. I hope this isn’t how every scene transition is handled, because if it is, I’m likely to just give in and ram my head through a wall before this movie is over.
