Judging by the reviews of DOG BITE DOG you'd think that you're going to see something that grabs hold and doesn't let go, but the fact of the matter is its not really the case.
The brutal violence depicted in the film isn't really more violent than anything you're not use to already and it isn't as action packed as the positive reviews say, the fact is its not really so good that it has to come out in a 2 disc collectors edition, which it does by the way, also for a film with so many positive reviews behind it, it probably has one of the worst endings I've seen in a long time.
I do agree with a few things the reviews commented on, the direction is very flexible, the cinematography is top quality, the acting is great and has an interesting character story but overall its not that great of a film and the ending is seriously stupid, this is the first film I've seen with rave reviews with such a terrible ending.
It would've gotten a 5 but instead it gets a 3 because of the ending.
