Extremely graphic gangster thriller, not for the faint of heart, 22 September 2010
Author: Indyrod from United States

Darren Ward directed this extremely violent gangster bloodfest, and he certainly delivers the goods. The story is about Mitchell (Nick Rendell), a money collector dispatched by a gangster boss to find some missing money. Movie begins with a really really hot sex scene, between Mitchell and his Wife, and then moves 24 months ahead with him lying dead on a morgue slab, with a huge hole in his stomach. The story is told by the dead man and recounts what happened to cause his gruesome death. The gangster boss believes he was robbed and when Mitchell goes to the guy they think did it, he finds the money and cuts the guys throat open, with lots of blood spray. Mitchell keeps the money, and then is called upon by an even meaner gangster boss to find his 100K, which Mitchell now has. This starts a rampage of some of the most extremely violent graphic bloody kill scenes you are likely to see in any movie. Ward really sets forth to create a splatterfest of the highest order. He succeeds with some great shootouts and one particular torture scene of a guy hanging by his feet from the ceiling. After beating the guy with clubs, for stealing money from the boss, what follows knocked me out of my chair. I've seen it all, believe me, but what they do to this guy made me flinch and is not easily forgotten, especially by men. Extremely bloody, gory, and Ward makes sure you see it all in nice bright bloody color. Every step of the way Mitchell takes with his psychopath partner leads to more kills, and more graphically detailed blood and guts. After the crime boss finds out it was Mitchell himself that stole his money, everybody goes after him. Big time shootouts, more kills, and I thought I was in heaven. There is NO WAY this cut Mr. Ward sent me will ever see the light of day in an American theater. But he intends on releasing it uncut and unrated, so lucky for everybody that likes this genre, you'll get to see what I saw in the screener. This is a very very brutal movie, but top notch acting by all involved, and great photography, make this a must-see for you fans of excessive violent movies. I didn't notice any CGI, just plain old very well staged practical makeup effects make this one a joy. There's a little Guy Ritchie, some Tarantino (ala Reservoir Dogs), but mostly Darren Ward (Sudden Fury) that creates a very memorable graphic gangster thriller. This movie is NOT to be missed, it scores on all levels. I loved it, and will buy it for sure, just to hear Mr. Wards commentary.
