Small budget ... gem of a movie .........
21 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly entertaining micro-budget black comedy. It's a diamond heist film, with acceptable acting, interesting characters, darkly humorous situations and dialog, noir-like double crosses, blackmail, murder, bad cops, stupid criminals, and a gratuitous sex scene. What more could you ask for in such an entertaining gem, no pun intended, of a movie. In addition to all of the above, there is some blood and guts thrown into the mix, but it's all part of the fun. To say "8 of Diamonds" exceeds expectations, would be a huge understatement. Definitely has re-watch ability and potential cult status. Recommended
