Not a bad movie
20 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't watch this movie expecting to find Oscar-caliber performances. But it did have a story, and it kept me interested right to the very end. The premise started out simple. Pool hustlers. And then suddenly it meat of the story starts to unravel, and I got to give props for an awesome climax. The pool playing was eye catching. And it's nice to finally see FPJ play subtle. It's a flawed film, but certainly not a terrible one. There were several pieces of dialogue I could live without. I was also a bit surprised to find myself chuckling a few times - when you see it, you'll know what I mean. Ving though felt terribly miscast, but he didn't distract me, so I'll take the good over the bad.
