He used to be on the bomb squad, but it's not until he transfers out that Chris Mankowski really begins juggling with dynamite. Rape and revenge are just the tip of the iceberg in a twisty tale that brings Detroit denizens to life - and occasional death - in all their seedy glory, circa 1974. Written by

Although I managed to watch this to the end I didn't so much as enjoy it, as endure it. It's not a bad film it's just devoid of characters that we care about. It has a wide spectrum of people but none of them are inspiring in any way, shape or form and with a cast this large it's quite a feat. If I had to choose it would be Billy Burke's character, Chris. It's a bit like 'Pulp Fiction' in presentation, throwing up chapter titles every 15 mins or so and telling each little story at a different time or place but ultimately linking them all up. Nothing we haven't seen before or indeed, will again only much, much better.
This film actually had potential, you can really imagine big QT doing this film and making it work. At first I thought the film had been badly miscast but as it progressed it became clear it was a very weak script with a very weak story and was ultimately doomed anyway. The cast itself were good, a real who's who of 'B' Lister's. After about 35-40 mins I was simply enjoying the view with the beautiful Sabina Gadecki and the sultry Breanne Racano which actually was enough to satisfy me, but only just.
The bottom line is, poor writing, weak characters, reasonable production but even with an interesting cast it's just not doing it for me.
