Small budget ... gem of a movie .........

Author: merklekranz from United States
21 December 2009

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

Very Watchable Movie for the budget

Author: themoviedeal from United States
7 March 2008

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 well.

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...
