A group of us watched this, not expecting much from the bargain bin offering, but while it took a while to get going, we really got into it after a while, and the ending was great - is he mad or was it real??
Poor Harry - he has a lot going wrong with his life, and Karl Urban does a fine job in this classic B movie blood and guts fest. You will never see a live cockroach regurgitated so well.
If blood and guts isn't your thing, then I wouldn't recommend it - unless your a girl in which case its well worth watching just for Karl running around half naked for most of the film.
Not a great film, but does very well within its obviously small budget and the cast are great .
