Way overwritten.
14 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe this film had some nice shots going for it and a very complementing soundtrack. However, with most independent films, it has too much dialogue that's either been done before or just comes out sounding silly. I thought the lead actor playing Vespa did a good job, as well as his wife. Unfortunately, the rest of the cast fell short. Theodore was way overdone. You can even see him looking right into the camera on a shot or two. Also, the main villain is almost a parody of a bad guy. Finally, the guy who played Norm-- Well, don't quit your day job. Anyhow, there was some nice camera-work, but overall it was too predictable.
