Puncture (2011, Adam & Mark Kassan) - 99 min.
This is a nice little gem that really didn't get the theatrical run that it deserved. Following the story of attorneys Mark Weiss and Paul Danziger, the film chronicles their attempts to get hospitals to start using "safety point" needles in order to save lives and prevent the spread of diseases like AIDS.
All in all, the story was pretty strong and the acting was solid. It managed to keep my interest the whole way, although I could have been more invested in the outcome. There were a few instances of strange cinematography (shot of the courtroom from what looks like the POV of someone standing on a desk? haha). It gets bonus points for lots of Chris Evans without a shirt on though.
All in all, a solid 7/10.
