What would you do if you were minding your own business at work when, as you sat down, you triggered a bomb? Hot Seat takes you through an intense few hours of this scenario and FlickDirect’s Allison Rose spoke with Director James Cullen Bressack about the challenges of making the film, the concept behind the story, and working with movie legend Mel Gibson.


Oscar-winner Mel Gibson brings this explosive cyber-thriller to life. The action begins as IT expert Friar (Kevin Dillon, Poseidon) finds a hair-trigger bomb strapped to his desk chair. An unseen hacker orders him to steal digital funds online—or have his daughter abducted. As a fearless bomb expert (Gibson) arrives on the scene, the hacker frames Friar as the bomber. The tension mounts as Friar races to clear his name and expose the real terrorist—without getting himself blown to smithereens.
