Not bad
10 July 2009 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

Regardless of how much i rated this movie, it is not really bad. i watched on TV, although i couldn't find any comment here and was having a 2nd thought to finish it, but i got hooked to to it. It is not a bad movie, it has some talent (direction wise), the characters are some how simple so the acting was fair enough. Santini tried to use some direction tricks, which somehow reminded me of "Natural Born Killers" and it seemed relevant to me, although sometimes they didn't fit. Overall, it shows Santini's talent to make movies "maybe of Guy Ritchi's school". The story is almost nothing, but at some point i felt like what's gonna happen. Don't expect so much of this, but if it happened you have a chance to watch this movie, then go ahead. You still can make a cup of tea or a sandwich while the movie is showing.
