Storyline

Rocky Valentine is a small-time hood who has been on the wrong side of the law for most of his life. After robbing a pawn shop, he is gunned down by the police and awakens to be met by Mr. Pip, who describes himself as a guide to his new surroundings. Rocky can't quite believe where he's ended up as he can have anything he desires. He's living in a beautiful apartment, never loses at the casino and is always surrounded by beautiful women. What good deed could he have done in life to deserve this. After a month or so however the shine of having anything and everything wears off. Written by garykmcd

Theologically sound, actually
1 January 2009 | by (Spokane, WA) – See all my reviews

Eternal damnation can be interpreted in many ways - having "everything you ever wanted" could most certainly become detestable after a short period of time. Granted there was no fire and brimstone, but the concept was very theologically sound. Just living with the frustration of always winning, always getting whatever you want, always having things turn out in your favor - imagine it! The spice of life is the unexpected, it's in the "not knowings" of this world that we find excitement. Remove that, and life becomes unbearable for many. Add to that the concept that "Hell" means different things to different people, and the precepts behind the story become very theologically sound.
