This film is a great movie to pass the time! I was really pleasantly surprised. I bought it for $6.00 at Best Buy on a whim! I hadn't heard of the film and thought the worst after reading the three comments on here about it.
However, I'm always willing to give a new film a try and I'm glad I did! I didn't expect such a funny and quirky action movie. The cover doesn't lie about there being non-stop action. The pace of this film keeps moving.
Martin Kove is a delight to watch as the vicious yet soft hearted, dim wit of a robbing, murdering thug for hire. He is great! The best work I've seen him do although I basically only know him from one television role. After seeing his brilliant performance in this film, I can't understand why he's not in more films.
If you prefer to see a more serious action film or drama then this movie is not for you. I expected a lousy film and ended up with a delightful romp, of quirky characters, silly word play and lots and lots of action fun. Good movie!
