An very mixed episode of Tales
17 August 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

An very mixed episode of Tales, on one hand it did have a few memorable death scenes. The most memorable one being a dream in which the main character hammered some woman's skull in.

But the truth is, it was pretty predictable and the dialog left much to be desired. Tim Roth is a good actor and he played a memorable character, but the rest of the cast as mostly forgettable.

The end of the episode was extremely predictable, he kills a man to save the girl not knowing that the man was the only guy that could have saved her.

Another thing that bothered me was the woman's stupidity, he almost killed her after sex and she still waits for him at his house?
