Storyline

Six years ago Joey's life changed totally. A shop owner who lay in a pool of blood claimed that Joey was the perpetrator. Now the time is served and Joey has scars on both his body and his soul. He is determined to never go back to prison. He seeks his elder brother Tommy who has begun dealing drugs and is now married to a beautiful blonde named Lorraine. She is at first sceptical about Joey staying there, but soon they develop a special relationship. Written by Fredrik Klasson <fredrik.klasson@boras.mail.telia.com>

Did you say two kicks to the crotch?
6 August 2008 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Let me just get this outta the way. *ahem* This movie has two scenes where someone gets kicked in the nuts. Two! For someone like myself, that's reason enough to check it out. But if you wanna know what it's about and blah blah blah, I suppose keep reading.

After spending some time in the cooler Joey is now released and is looking to get his life back on track. He ends up heading home, and reunites with his brother. Staying at his bro's until he finds steady work all seems fine, that is until he begins realizing the outside world is still as unforgiving and selfish as it was before.

No Way Home was a good flick. It had a lowkey and unpredictable Tim Roth running the show with a decently solid supporting cast bringing up the rear. At first the movie tends to feel like it's trying too hard (overacting), but it hits a pretty serious groove and it begins becoming a very solid flick. Most probably due to the increase in sex, adult-themed conversations and gritty violence.

With some surprising developments, some nice attention to realism, and a couple kicks in the groin, this should be a nice viewing for anyone who enjoys serious drama. Tim Roth being the lead doesn't hurt the flick much either.
