I sort of feel like independent filmmaker Jarrod Crooks deserves a much bigger spotlight than he has now. I’ve expressed this back in 2017 to some affect in reviewing of his third feature, Indie Guys, which stands as one of the most delightful action comedies I’ve ever seen – packed with gems and plenty of space to allow Crooks and fitting cohorts like Film Combat Syndicate favorite, co-star José Manuel to do what they love most and are pretty damn good at.
I honestly don’t know when that one will be out, although I look forward to covering Crooks’ endeavors in due time. Meanwhile, his third feature, Dispatched, had a local release throughout his home state of Wisconsin where he’s based, and at long last after five years in limbo, the film is now available on Amazon Prime Video where consumers can rent or purchase and support Crooks’ efforts. He stars along with actresses Katrina Simyab and Kaylyn Statza.
Jake Wyndem is a cop demoted to watch his boss’ daughter while she is on vacation with a friend. Meanwhile a disgraced retired officer is out for revenge against Jake after he discovers he had a hand in his sons death. Jake now has to protect his boss’ daughter and himself in this action comedy thriller directed by award winning director Jarrod Crooks.
