These gangsters aren't bad at all, neither is the movie
6 October 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was kind of shocked to see that so little people took the trouble to vote for this movie, and rated it so low: I liked it quite a lot. Not only has the movie -in it's genre- an intelligent and surprising script, it also has some pretty nice acting in characters and events that aren't simple at all (though the character-background-psychology-stuff is a bit thick). I payed only 1 Euro for the DVD, and I don't get why: With the right publicity and some luck I think this could have been a bigger movie.

Though the script isn't realistic and finds part of its humor in exaggeration and exploiting clichés, I also saw some real people and touching moments. I liked the Joey character a lot, I'ld like to see more of that guy.

Overall it has a nice warm sympathetic atmosphere, the picture seems to've been made with a lot of love and dedication (Low-Budget!). and for me really worked as a 'feel-good-movie'.

Maybe the lack of real violence, hard action, blood, explosions and martial arts is what makes this movie disappointing to some, but I didn't miss any of those. Maybe that's the whole problem with this movie, but also the big plus: you don't get what you expect. It's just a nice story about nice people who happen to be a bit gangsterish today.
