Worth the 15 minutes
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is given much appreciation for how short it is and the fact that it is a true story. Sometimes we don't want a long drawn out movie to know what actually happened we just want to get the general idea of the character and the events occurred. This is the first film that did that and even with a low budget to work with, it was well done.

The character seemed like and interesting man and in the end he had to make a hard decision that most people would never be able to follow through on. Even though he lived with terrible ethics, he had a strong character that kept him upright and he took care of what he felt was necessary for an undesirable path. For that reason alone it's worth the 15 minutes.
