You've probably never heard of anybody in this movie, but it's definitely worth a look (if you have nothing better to do)
25 June 2004 | by (Calimesa, California) – See all my reviews

The box cover compares itself to Quentin Tarantino. I assume this movie is trying to be similar to Reservoir Dogs. That, I can tell you, it's definitely not. The only real comparison that can be made is the fact the movie is about a bunch of criminals involved in a heist-gone-wrong. It's not necessarily a bad thing. Although, I do have to say the first scene made the movie pretty predictable, even if you're not looking too hard. It has it's own style, which it should be proud of. It really was better than I thought it would be, and I didn't catch myself watching the clock throughout. Thomas Baumann both directed and wrote the film so I guess I should give him credit, even though I've never heard of him or any of his other movies.

The movie itself starts off slow but it really does get witty and picks up the pace once it gets through the clichéd beginning. There are two notable scenes I will always remember (I won't spoil it here for you, but when you see the "Duncan Proof Knot", that's one of them).

The best actor in the movie is Kelvin Webb, who has no other credits but has an uncanny resemblance to Laurence Fishburne. On the opposite end of that is Kip Ellwood who played the "Head Hillbilly In Charge", so to speak. I really didn't like his performance as it seemed as if he's trying to hard to be a mean hillbilly. The rest of the cast is just mediocre. All the hillbilly family reminded me of the family from House Of 1000 Corpses. Could be just me, but I liked these hillbillies better than Zombie's version and thought they were a bit more humorous (if Zombie's were meant to be humorous at all).

Overall, it's worth a look, bad acting from Kip Ellwood aside.
