Portal: No Escape is a sci-fi short film featuring ultra-fit actress Danielle Rayne (Chell) as a prisoner in some kind of experimental facility. Rayne’s physique and high cheek bones pull the viewer into her struggle, but the explanation for her imprisonment and the serial numbers on the back of her neck are never explained. Director Daniel Trachtenberg uses establishes some familiar prison motifs, until Chell figures out a way to escape using a gun that generates worm-hole like passages from one location to another. The action is exciting and the mystery behind Chell’s circumstances attracts audiences to appreciate this short film, but for me, it does not really go anywhere new.
