Good low budget film.
20 May 2003 | by (Miami, USA) – See all my reviews

You don´t have to ask too much from a low budget movie like this. It is what it is, as the oracle would say, and there are some interesting and funny moments on it. The script is not great, that´s true but i liked the directing and most of the cast. What was the budget in this flick? 3, 4 million... not enough for this kind of story with gunfire, carchases... The first half of the movie works, then... well the script is not that great.The director was an storyborad artist and a designer before -I saw Sussus, his animated short film,and I loved it- like many other filmmakers like James Cameron... and I´m not saying this guy could be him but anybody out there remembers Piranha 2? I like to see what this director can do with a bigger budget and a better script. And seriously, it does not matter if the director is british, chinese of spanish... the script is the script. I didn´t like the soundtrack too much but it wasn´t that bad. Ron perlman is brilliant and Kelly Brook, gorgeous. Lou Diamond Phillips is very funny. I like it.
