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 - MERK
The budget on this movie was super low, you can tell, but the
filmmakers did a great job. Eric Roberts (Pope of Grenwich Village,
Runaway Train) is cool in his role, there are a lot of twists and turns
as with the detective movies of days gone buy. It was good to see Tim
Kazurinski (from Saturday night Live, Police Acadamy), I haven't seen
him for a while. Don Gibb (Revenge of the Nerds!) was good in his role
As I mentioned above, the film mirrors the detective movies of old, where the dialog and story drag you through the mystery, as opposed to relying on car chases and big gunfights. If your in the mood for a limited budget indie that was obviously made with TLC...
