Painfully embarrassing
21 February 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by gifted actors like Gary Oldman or Robert Carlyle. They simply can't save this movie. It really tries hard to be cool, but fails in every way, and then it tries some more.The story is very confusing, and in the middle of it, you just don't care anymore. Many of the scenes are way too long, with lines that tries hard to be funny,and doesn't make it..but still the scenes move on still trying. The editor must have lost the entire movie in a blender, and then stapled it together. The acting between Billy Zane and Karel Roden makes me crumble into my rear end. This is just a pathetic attempt to make a hit like Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrels. Charley Stadler...sober up!
