Absolutely terrible movie that everyone sholuld see.
8 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I expected to see many more negative reviews about this movie since the average cinephile is dead serious and can't enjoy things for what they are - in this case, stupid fun. So I was pretty relieved to see that other people agreed with me: this movie is not good at all and it's great. Thanks to everyone over the age of 9 having access to non-linear editing software, anyone can make a zero budget action film. Gone are the no-budget indies that were all slice of life and dramedy, enter the "fog machine and CGI helicopter" era of indie filmmaking. For the most part, the vast majority of these movies are garbage. Not "so bad it's good" bad, just bad. But every once in a while we strike bad movie comedy gold like Gangster Exchange. A movie that is bad with the extra-added perk of being funny as hell.

Battleship Potemkin, this movie is not. The pace of this movie is sure to turn a lot of people off. It never gets chaotic, it doesn't slow down for the dramatic bits. It just feels like "here's a scene. Here's another scene. This is also a scene." It's quite unimpressive. But it's also the perfect flow for a movie you're not planning on taking seriously from the getgo. It almost pleads with you to drink along with the characters. See, if it were all comedy, the movie would feel dreadful. And if it were all airsoft props and CG muzzle flash, the movie would feel dreadful. However, due to the irregular editing style, it's impossible to expect what kind of scene you're going into next, which I found refreshing. Couple that kind of amateurism with a set of ancillary characters whose only purpose are to liven the picture up and you can't help but laugh.

The story is out of a can, the antagonists can't act their way out of a high school rendition of Grease, there's bad techno playing throughout the entire film and the hero is carrying a toilet around for an hour of screen time. The ending is predictable and satisfying, the obligatory party scene is loud and stupid, and the lead is attractive and likable. That's really it. So why'd I give it an 8? Because I can. Sorry, snobs.
