Boss Level focuses on special forces agent, Roy Pulver (Frank Grillo) having a Groundhog Day. He’s trapped in a time loop where he repeats the day of his murder. Gradually he pieces parts of the puzzle together and sometimes he progresses further in his day, others not so much.
The timely and editing is cleverly done – you don’t get bored with the repeated segments, although you continually meet the same characters. Later on, we discover Roy has a son he wants to get to know better and needs to make peace with his wife (Naomi Watts). As he races against the clock to solve the riddle, he must somehow defeat Colonel Ventor (Mel Gibson) and his group of ruthless assassins.
Boss Level is a refreshing take on the Groundhog genre.
