Worth viewing if you are a David Hewlett Fan
4 June 2011 | by (Dahlonega GA) – See all my reviews

This movie is obviously low budget but I did not care. I watched this movie purely on the fact that David Hewlett was in it. He is not a lead character but he does have some nice scenes. His character "Chuckie" does forward the plot - what there is of a plot.

If you are a David Hewlett fan then this movie IS worth watching - he made it when he was nineteen years old, and you can see that he had acquired a certain amount of acting skill even at this young age. He does make a credible drug addict. I would recommend this if you are a David Hewlett fan just so you can see he is not just Rodney McKay from Stargate Atlantis. Other reviewer have said that the other acting is not that good but I found it adequate to watch the movie. Enjoy.
