Gang leaders Ray (Andrew Goth) and Terry (Goldie), who are cousins and lifelong friends, always trusting and relying on each other, have been in prison. Ray doesn't want to be a gangster anymore, having also fallen for Clare (Rachel Shelley). but Terry, driven by an obsession beyond friendship, is determined to make sure that Ray never leaves the gang. During their time in prison, the local Chinese Triad gang have grown stronger and more daring, eventually killing a member of Terry and Ray's gang. Revenge is called for and the gang turns to them for direction. Bernie (David Bowie) is the aging gangster who struggles to keep the peace. Written by raymondfrancis1978

Memorably bad...which I suppose is something.
9 October 2008 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

What an awful, awful film.

I saw a few years back, drawn by Goldie and Bowie, whose music I enjoy, the last time I've made that mistake.

Bowie and Goldie, limited as actors but effective in the proper roles, did fine here, but rather than get a film which assigns them one note characters in order to better focus the viewer on the fact that the director is edgy, the writer is subtle, and the main actor has a great body, is a great dancer, and rivals Deniro in talent. All three are Andrew Goth, and all three sucked out loud, especially in scenes so irrelevant to the plot and narcissistic that they are painful to watch. For instance...

Did you know the main character, Ray, played by Goth is an honorable thug, but also a greater dancer? Does he pursue a dancing career in the film or is the dancing otherwise relevant to the plot? You ask.

No, but it's crucial that we have a long scene about him being a great dancer, just like we need a long scene to see that he can do a lot of pull ups, in order to understand that Nietzsche's Ubermensch walks the earth and is named Andrew Goth, I mean Ray.

Oh yes, and the movie is about a couple friends released from prison, one determined to go straight and one who is a psycho. Comic mayhem ensues.

The movie was memorably bad, which is an accomplishment I suppose, in an "Ed Wood" sort of way, since I've already forgotten so many mediocre films, but "Busted" aka "Everybody Loves Sunshine" has stuck with me, and even now recalling it, I have to shake the bad off my skin like so many wet slugs. Yuck!
