The buildings where the foggy final showdown takes place are actually part of Bokor Hill Station, a colonial hill resort town built by the French in the 1920s. This site, on a mountain above Kampot in Southern Cambodia, included a church and Grand Bokor Palace, a hotel-casino. They were taken over by the Cambodian monarchs after the French left, and were a Khmer Rouge stronghold against the Vietnamese (the shelling is still visible, there are no windows left intact). Today the buildings are abandoned, crumbling and covered in red moss, but can still be visited. See more »

To me this film is good. Now I won't get too elaborate or pretentious, (as most writers or critics do on IMDb). What I liked about this film was that it was a simple con man story. Now a simple con man story is hard to do in my opinion, an almost impossible feat, so many people get caught up in the twists and explosions, and bs that the con man's life has to entail. Matt's role character is the, "wrong place wrong time sort of guy" (What a great line!) likable and looking for an out and a release from the 6 lifetimes of bad Karma. And that's what he does, there is a morality tale that isn't preachy or too expositional, that's just the way it is, you make your choices and maybe there's a bigger choice that's already made for you. The Cambodian landscape is a very "cracked windshield" sort of noir to quote Dillon. I really loved that he used his surroundings without fear. Bad luck for bad actions, in time working towards something inescapable, one's own choices to be a better person. Two thumbs way the hell up.
