Note to film makers: When making a film staring two little known actors, make sure they don't look so much alike that it's difficult to tell them apart.
I see now that they have made a few movies, but I didn't recognize anyone in the film. At first I thought "why is he talking with an accent now?", it took awhile before I could tell the difference between the two main guys. Other than that, it was worth the 49 cents I spent to rent the movie (I can't say that about all movies).
Some of it was filmed in Sofia, Bulgaria. I don't see too many films shot in Bulgaria, so it was kind of cool to see scenery other than the standard L.A., New York, London etc.
It has a fair amount of action, and actually has a plot. There are a few lame scenes, but I've seen worse. Overall, it's worth seeing if you have four bits and some time kill.
