This movie promises to be quite good...the cover would give the impression that there are colourful characters within like those in Snatch and maybe a quirky storyline like The Usual Suspects. It definitely has all the ingredients to be quite good but falls short of the mark. Without giving away what little storyline there is (reading the back of the DVD jacket will give you 80% of it anyway), I will just say that, for me, this was not very good...almost bad. It looks as though someone who enjoys Guy Ritchie movies and Tarantino flicks has decided to shoot their own talkie and then remembered halfway through that it should have a story and then realised about 3/4 way through that the story has to do something or go somewhere. Note to writer/director: write story first THEN shoot movie. Visually is was nice too look at and even OK to listen to...I liked all the actors, especially Michael Welch, but no one could save this...they simply had nothing to work with. Still worth a look, just to see if John Millea's next effort is any better...but, don't expect a Pulp Fiction as this is no Reservoir Dogs. 6/10
