This movie is painful.
22 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I purchased this movie for $1 at my local wal-mart $1 bin. I usually purchase $1 movies when I am intoxicated. I have very little money to do anything with, so one dollar is a lot of money for me. I purchased this movie because it had Luke perry on the front with a gun. I am a fan of handguns, so I figured it might be gangster.

The title of the movie is Down the Barrel. It seems innocent at first, until the movie' blatant homosexual innuendos and themes became apparent. Once you are bombarded with the homosexual themes, you cant help but think that the title itself is some homosexual innuendo.

I watched this with two of my compatriots, ages 20, 19. Multiple times they asked me to turn off the DVD player. About three quarters of the way through the movie, one of my compatriots left, saying "I cant take this S**** anymore." My other friend also requested the movie end before the ending. But I was extremely intrigued and horrified.

There is a scene in this movie that involves a gay male prostitute and an older gay man. Before they start making out, the gay prostitute notices a young child sleeping in the back seat of the van. The gay adult says "Oh don't worry man, i slipped her a little something. She will sleep right through it. Shell sleep like a baby. Because she is a baby. A sweet baby." I cannot describe to you the look on our faces. I almost considered calling wal-mart and debating the "Family friendly" movies they have. I was not carded for this movie, and while the swear words were edited, very badly i might add, there were more then enough sexual innuendos to ruin any young supple child's mind. This movie also features a pole dancing scene. This is quite disgusting, as the actress is both ugly, chubby, and white. Really white.

You would have to be a sick sick person to derive any kind of enjoyment from this movie film.

She is sitting in a jail cell where she has narrated the entire movie. You think she was in jail the whole time but she was actually just filming and interview on the set of her new movie in a jail set. With Luke perry, i think.

There, i have just ruined the ending. She was never in jail. The entire movie is now ruined for you, but you should rejoice as the movie was a painful lesson in homosexuality and child abuse/pornography.

I pray that the directer ( who by the way is the main character of the story) pays for his sin in making this movie. It truly is a detriment to our children, and should be burned like nazi's burned books.

Have a wonderful evening. This movie is hell.
