The worse movie ever!!!
27 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you want to get bored and disappointed with the movie industry then see this movie.

Ashes to Ashes is trying to be a kung-fu/mafia/action/sex movie which doesn't really work within any of these genres. The dialogue is truly awful, embarrassing and is obviously trying to emulate Tarantino's style - but I think Quentin can rest easy in Hollywood! The acting is at best desperate and at worst laughable. However there is some acting talent within the cast unfortunately it is very well hidden beneath lousy direction and a clichéd script.

I hate to be so negative about a movie especially when I am so into independent films and have the ultimate respect for all film makers out there however this is a first class example of what complete and utter garbage can be created by someone with (I presume) too much time on his hands but not enough money or talent. I'm saying this because apparently this movie was written, directed, produced and starred by the same person.

Well If you would like to waste your time, money and sanity... then try to buy it and... well try (if you can) to watch it.

I just hope Wayne Trotman has got this movie making business out of his system and I pray that there is not a sequel in production.
