Writer Statement

"The Engineer" is a high-octane, gripping adventure that will hook you in with its riveting action and will keep you engaged with its fantastic lead. Brilliant and assertive, Lexi is a compelling character who dominates her scenes and makes what could be a more routine story even more entertaining to watch. One refreshing thing the script does in crafting this dynamic lead is making it clear she is not invincible. Lexi can more than hold her own in any fight, but she is also vulnerable, and as a result, these brutal, fast-paced combat sequences have real stakes and consequences. Lexi also has an intriguing backstory, only gradually revealed, and conveyed in a moving monologue, that makes her all the more sympathetic. The global scale of the plot you will find impressive, and while Baldene is not the most compelling villain, you can see the potential for more adventures ahead.
