It's not a rip-off and it's not a spoof. This is the ultimate Tarantino fan film!
3 June 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I am one of the biggest Quentin Tarantino fans you'll ever find. And I was even a Tarantino fan boy for the first year I was watching his movies. But then I came back to reality and saw him for what he was. He's not the most brilliant director in the world... but he's most certainly the most influenced one. So now I'm strictly a loyal fan and nothing more.

Now even though this movie is basically built up by plot points and different versions of numerous scenes in True Romance, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction and many references to other Tarantino flicks it does not make it a ripp-off. This is more like a fan film made by someone who really loves Tarantino films and is greatly influenced by him. It has the same kind of bullsh!t dialouge and with many meaningless discussions and unknown quotes from people such as Shakespeare. The unchronilogical setup of the scenes in this movies is a bit more random than in Tarantino movies though but it is a bit intelligent in parts how the whole thing plays out.

I recommend to get this film off Amazon from a private buyer or off ebay or other places on the net. If you're a big Tarantino fan then it's definitely worth it!
