Great movie I've never heard of
26 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am currently on vacation and they have Showtime,HBO,and Cinemax here where I only have basic cable at home so this is a treat.

I got ready for bed and scanned the channels to find this movie. The scene I first stumbled upon was when they arrived at the remote desert location.

My favorite fellow Filipino, Ernie Reyes,Jr. is in this film. They call him the Chinaman, although I kept squinting and said, That guy doesn't look Chinese at all. He looks 100% Filipino. LOL. Anyways, I recognized Plummer who I'd seen in Showgirls.

Basically Reyes is almost unrecognizable as he plays opposite of his typical powerful Black-Belt self. I this movie, he is slightly more meek, withdrawn, obedient, and laid-back. They do portray him as being stereotypically good in math when he divides large sums without a calculator.

This movie was borderline funny and had a lot of intense moments.

There were some female "ladies of the night" and one of them was a mixed-race actress whose character was "V". I recall her face. Her performance was very good and had some intense sexual moments.

Bowling ball bags, robberies, outhouses, Orange soda, thirst, cocaine...this was a pretty good movie coming from someone who doesn't watch movies she turns to in the middle or past the intro not knowing what is going on.

When this comes out on DVD it is sure to be a favorite.
