Fun, great characters and an unusual ending.
10 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has great interaction among the main characters. There is good chemistry between the two leads, Tommy the kid and Leo, the film's protagonist.

The photography is very good with a colorful yet noir feel to it, in a modern setting that does not quite feel like it is of this era however. The story is timeless.

The Darkness is one of the BEST villains I've seen in a film in years.

The ending is unexpected and satisfying.

This is a fun movie with some quirky humor that still tugs at the heart. It is about an over-the-hill wrestler, but you won't have to be a wrestling fan to enjoy this flick.
