Hidden from the public to keep their unlawful acts secret, a group of fast-draw artists known as The Cylinder hold an ongoing competition to determine who the six best live-ammo duelists in America are.
The clock is ticking towards The Last Minute, but no one knows it. No one except Billy Byrne - young, cool and talented, he's the Next Big Thing. At least that's what the London glitterazzi are saying, on the streets, in the clubs, in the Business. But the glitterazzi turn out to be wrong and Billy Byrne is all over in a split second. His world detonates. His self-esteem splinters. Suddenly he's on a rollercoaster ride into the London underworld - a dangerous land of murderers, thieves and talent agents. Written by
Near the end of the credits there is a message from the director which mirrors Billy Byrne's obsession with time: "The original director's cut of this motion picture is exactly 163989 frames, 6832.875 seconds, 113.88125 minutes, 1.8980208 hours in duration (sans logos.) If this version is a different length, or if this message is missing, you may not have viewed the original director's cut. For further information, contact: www.stephennorrington.com See more »
The atypical gritty Guy Ritchie British school of modern film class has reared a muddled mess of a movie. With a grandiose, meaning of life premise, the somewhat shallow and undefined plot leaves little room for depth of any real substance. Between the drawn-out stylistic vignettes and the over-abundance of effects, the film falls flat on it's fashionable face. A lower rating would have been in order had it not been for some humorous and entertaining moments, where levity and brevity are welcome friends and make the almost unbearable bearable. Overall, it's a mildly entertaining bit of mindless madness with a side order of "seize the day." Not worth a trip to the theater, but might do in a pinch at your local video store.
