Two Guns Up for Knock'em Dead
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After enjoying the hell out of the trailer on YouTube sometime back, I had anticipated getting a chance to see Knock'em Dead.

Well, I finally had the extreme pleasure of viewing this film about a month ago, and I gotta say, the wait was worth it. For a short feature, this movie is loaded with laughs and had me laughing from start to finish; even the end credits will have you chuckling with a song and dance number involving the entire cast.

Jose E. Cruz Jr. shows that he is a talented director and writer by creating such an entertaining movie that is made even more hilarious by Chris Ready's fantastic comedic skills.

My only wish is that Knock'em Dead could have been a little longer, but having it short was smart. It keeps the viewers wanting more. And that's what I look forward to: seeing more from Jose E. Cruz Jr.
