SILVER & GOLD
There is no gem too guarded, no diamond too secure, or no amount of cash too vaulted for these two paramours to relieve from their unfortunate marks.
"SILVER & GOLD" IS A three-part series written and directed by filmmaker Alonge Hawes. The show's primary focus is on a gang of professional thieves. Charles Goldar (Quentin Williams) is the slick-talking wise-cracking leader, and Sosa Gerena (Roberto Cruz Jr.) is the muscle and brains of the organization.
... THE GANG IS IN FULL SWING BY EPISODE TWO. AND THE TARGET? AN ONLINE PREACHER.
Of course, we need the ladies, and Bahiya Payne (Brittaney Taylor) plays a seductress who can con anyone with her looks and questionable English accent. There is also Cienna Valentine (Shani Hawes), who plays a computer wizard and seductress. Us viewers are introduced to everyone in the first episode when a sting doesn't quite go as planned, but the gang is in full swing by episode two. And the target? An online preacher.
... THE GANG IS AFTER A FABERGE NECKLACE, AND THEY ARE CHALLENGED BY A RIDDLER-LIKE NEMESIS.
Now I'm assuming a preacher with an online congregation is probably more than a little shady. So ripping off this dude is alright in my books. By the third episode, the gang is after a Faberge necklace, and they are challenged by a Riddler-like nemesis. I can't really get into much more without giving away the whole plot, and I don't really want to do that; I would instead rather you watch the series for yourself.
...THE CAMERA WORK AND EDITING ARE VERY PROFESSIONAL, AND THE MUSIC WORKS REALLY WELL IN EVERY SCENE.
I want to "really" like this series. I really do. It's just that there are times, for me, that the whole project feels like a draft that is meant to bring to the actual filmmakers as a pitch of sorts. But then there are also some pretty cool location scenes that give the series a professional boost. The acting itself is pretty good, but there are moments when the timing feels a little off, and the script doesn't always work its magic. There are a lot of quick comedic lines that kind of just fly by. On the other hand, the camera work and the editing are very professional, and the music works really well in every scene... and really gives an espionage vibe. "Silver & Gold" was a lot of fun, and a lot of love was clearly put into this project, so I'm going to give it three out of five stars.
