Anna Katharina Schwabroh,
I could rate this higher than 5 if comparing it to other low-budget films, because it's pretty good in that category. I gave it a 5 because it overcomes its limitations to be... any good, but it does still suffer from a few flaws. As everyone has noted, the acting is so-so, and I'll add that the effects were not up to standard big-budget par either. Also, I can think of a few plot holes, if I wanna. LOL!
OTOH, I can't rate it too low because it held my interest and for the most part it was competently done, even good in places. Any movie that keeps me guessing will at least climb out of the basement, and this one goes beyond that. I cared, a little bit, about the characters, and wondered what would become of Joe in his quest for... whatever.
This has too much violence and blood for children, but adults looking for some cheap indie thrills in a film noir style should enjoy. Just take it for what it is.
