Don't waste any minutes of your life
29 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't anticipating much (although you never know when you'll stumble upon the next "Run Lola Run"), but this failed to meet even greatly lowered expectations.

I only got 40 minutes in, to be honest -- and even that far was because I was generously hoping that the poor dialogue, punchy acting, stilted directing and uneven plot pacing would somehow start to turn the corner and redeem itself. It didn't, so I turned it off.

The story is simple: Dumb dude owes a mean guy money, so the mean guy injects dumb dude with a poison that will kill him in 80 minutes if he doesn't cough up the $15,000 he owes. Action-y hijinks ensue. Sadly, it wasn't well-conceived or written.

The camera work was nice, images sharp, lighting appealing, etc. The rest of it was 40 minutes that no amount of money can give me back.
