Japan
8 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film will never be seen... I think... It ran into some troubles, but it watches very nicely. Fabian, Shane, Peter, and Treva did a great job on this movie! It is finished, literally... Filled with action, plot twists, and sexy sultry scenes... It would have been one heck of a watch! It is sad and funny how even completed films can't be released for public viewing. Definably one of Fabian's best works...

The film is a very pulp, grimy, non-idealistic look into the world of a mediocre level hit man... It has it all drugs, sex, and even an airplane scene... The heat is on in this psychedelic thriller.

To bad I'm one of a hand full of people that will ever see it. Or does that mean they made a Million dollar movie for me... Thanks Guys!
