Watching this movie is similar to shoving shards of glass in your eyes while drinking battery acid. Everything about this movie is sh!t. The acting is the worst I've ever seen in my entire life, the camera angles are horrible, the plot is completely random, the characters are more cheesy than a kraft factory, there's no surround track...dude its just bad.
The cheesy characters are the best part, the lines are so forced, fake and filled with ridiculous amounts of cursing that its Dave chappelle quality funny. I guess they thought all the swearing would make the characters seem more convincing (which did the opposite in actuality).
Anyways yo check out the guy who keeps calling people a b!tch, he's hilarious for all the wrong reasons (maybe he has turrets). He swears more in this movie than Sam Jackson in his entire career.
Then there's the action sequences, man......you know what its so bad it can't be described in words, the English language isn't that advanced yet. But i'll say this, the action is less convincing than the acting!!! and believe me the acting is real real real bad, so you can just imagine.
the only saving grace for this movie is the two SEXY, SEXY, SEXY, God damn!!! Latinas in it. I watched the entire movie just to see them (shallow?, i know, i know).
So my verdict, definitely check this movie out. WHY? because watching it will allow you to appreciate real movies a lot more. Secondly its so bad its funny, and finally if you're a film student and want to know what not to do in a movie this will help.
Low budget or not, its just bad.
