Not one of "Wings" better efforts .............
23 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Living to Die" is not one of Wings Hauser's better efforts. It comes across as extremely disjointed. With "Wings" directing and starring, the film smacks of being more of a vanity project than anything else. Arnold Vosloo is really wasted in a supporting role, and Darcy DeMoss struts her "soft core" stuff, but her acting is less than mediocre. The noirish blackmail plot leads to a surprise ending that leaves lots of unanswered questions regarding believability. Watching "Wings" riding a motorcycle, riding go carts, and horseback riding fills in dead spaces, of which there are plenty. Not recommended, even for "Wings" enthusiasts. - MERK
