WINNER of the prestigious
Here's what they said about it:
CRITICAL (aka) INCISION is a terrific read. The story is strong, the characters - engaging and complex, the dialogue - snappy, the setting - a winner. To boot, the story’s finish works!...
As in “Lethal Weapon,” “Die Hard,” and other action series, the hero is not dressed in all white and comes well equipped with flaws that add interest and drama to the story. In the end, his bravado, quick wit, and never-say-die attitude bring the downfall of the villain in an exciting and unexpected way. Well done.
Code Red introduces us to the designer and builder of a high-tech hospital and pathogen research complex. When the complex is taken over by an evil mastermind and his minions, the story quickly ramps up, and we find ourselves hanging on and enjoying the ride.
Complications abound as the hero and a sidekick tackle the seemingly insurmountable odds by fighting the bad guys.
Well-crafted action sequences as well as a series of escalating obstacles thrown in the path of the hero serve to maintain our interest and dish up a strong finish -- one that packs a punch by delivering a few twists.

Here's what they said:
This is a very well put together actioner. The script has strong lead roles, both hero and villain.
Morales’ ruthlessness and impatience mixed with a sarcastic wit make him scary but entertaining.
And Beth is an equally strong female presence. In addition, the story is paced well, offering hectic beats of action with less intense character building sequences.
That action is excitingly written and the script flows through vivid descriptions. And the care of keeping things PG-13 allows for a greater audience.
CONCLUSION: This well-written script certainly has enough to garner some attention for feature development and with some slight tweaks, it has the opportunity to attract a wide audience.
