Quotes

[first lines]
Johnny Virus: This story takes place in the quarry. It never happened. Some gutter rat just made the whole thing up. It's about the Chicago Underworld gone mad, all because some lunatic fuck got greedy. Pointed bullets in the face of some kiss-my-ring murderer. Dime store fiction at its best. My name is Johnny Virus. How do I fit into all of this? I'm just some dime store fiction gumba that got a rat made of 'im - come by for your entertainment. Hope you have a good time.

Not at all what I expected....
5 April 2010 | by (Raleigh, NC, USA) – See all my reviews

This is basically a six-character play that takes place on two sets and one location. As others have said, it has a bad case of "Sin City" envy. I don't mind the lack of originality so much, but it's just plain boring. The interrogation/torture scenes have no intensity and the final scenes wherein everything is resolved have no tension. The title character basically has nothing to do in the movie. (It's as if Shakespeare had named his play about the prince of Denmark, "Guildenstern.") Also, while I can appreciate that times are tough, independent film-makers really need to get away from using animated (I won't even dignify them by calling them CGI) gunshots. The only thing that was lacking was a big "BAM!" in block letters, like in the Batman TV series. If you don't have the money to actually fire a gun on camera, don't bother. Definitely not worth your while. (And why the hell is he called "Johnny Virus"? That makes no sense whatsoever.)
