Prostitutes, Mafia & Contract Killers what more could you ask for..
8 May 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Well, let's just say that there was more life and entertainment value in the corpses than the actors doing the killing. This film needed a bigger budget than the £35 they seemed to have spent on this load of old cod's-wallop.

This could have been a very, very good film, if only the director had had a clue to what he was doing, editing is all over the place, the sound track through out the movie was heavy handed and completely unnecessary in places.

I think the biggest problem with this movie is that the majority of the dialogue is delivered in a manner of someone reading from idiot-boards, in a very dull monotone sort of way.

The one bright spot in this movie was Jake Canuso who played Alessandro, a schizo mafia thug in the best tradition of movie mafia thugs. Good Job..

Don't waste your time with this, it will only encourage them to make something else even more banal.

You've been warned...
