Mickey Rourke's character, Ed Moseby, is based on real-life bounty hunter Ed Martinez, while Delroy Lindo's character, Claremont Williams III, is based on real-life bail-bondsman Celes King III, Domino Harvey's real boss. Both men were used as technical advisors on the film. See more »

An intriguing story that falls way short of the mark due to poor direction.
For the most part my summary basically covers it all. The story had potential to be good and well told. However, instead of the flick being a decent action flick combined with the story of Domino Harvey's life leading up to the job where it all went wrong, the film comes off as a misguided and poorly shot music video that tries it's hardest to annoy the viewer with random uses of video filters edited in, and repetitive looping and almost auto-tuning of narration from the main character. Regardless of it's flaws which really irritated me and made me want to shut the movie off, I sat through it as the potential of the story intrigued me to finish. And based on that I generously give the movie a 4 out of 10. Sit through it at your own risk.
