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.
