Did You Know?


The details of Dallas' version of Nick and Casey's last job differ from that of Casey's version. According to Dallas' story, told to her by Nick, Ball-Peen's apartment was very colorful, luxurious and lavish. And the woman who comes out of the bedroom was, at least, pretty. In the version Casey tells, the apartment was drab, run-down and dirty. The woman from the bedroom looks like a drug addict wearing a bath robe and disheveled hair. See more »


When Casey and Ice are smoking marijuana in the kitchen, the lighter disappears and reappears between cuts. See more »


Casey: [trying to convince himself] There is nothing in that case but a pack of legal documents. Maybe a box of condoms. That's it.

A Damn good movie!
14 November 2005 | by (London,UK) – See all my reviews

It is a damn good movie,with some surprising twists,a good cast and a great script. Only a couple of stupid bits,like the Rasta hit-man scene (This guy's a professional?) but that has been commented on already. The fact I had only heard one guy at work mention it before, and did not have many opinions or reviews to go on, made it even more entertaining. This gets a higher score than maybe some people think it deserves, but I have to factor in the low budget and the good effort from the cast. It sickens me that some movies get made whose budget equals the GDP of a small country,with a hyped up release,good reviews,an Oscar winning director and/or actors, and turn out to be so disappointing,with actors sleepwalking through their roles and uninspired directing,with predictable plot lines and a story with holes in it so big,Sandra Bullock could drive a bomb-loaded bus through it. (Examples in my opinion are The Terminal,Castaway,Matrix:Revolutions) Extra points are awarded for the wardrobe department choosing great clothes for the cast,especially Paulina Porizcova,who wears a rubber dress in one scene,and a jacket with "c*nt" on the back in large letters in another!A sex scene which shows off her tight ass and a good soundtrack are added bonuses! And PLEASE,enough with the Tarantino comparisons,this did not remind me of a Tarantino flick at all.... and Tarantino borrows virtually every idea he has ever had from other movies! Even if that is your opinion,are we saying once a certain film or book is written or directed one way,no-one can ever use the same ideas again? get real. This film has it's own style.
