Did You Know?

Goofs

Several scenes the pistol held by different people was not cocked. It was a single action M1911A1 Colt type semi auto pistol. It was not a double action type where you pull the trigger and it cocks the hammer for you. You can't just pull the trigger and it fires. To fire an uncocked pistol is impossible. See more »

A thriller only playing in one location
21 August 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The movie plays in a little coffee-bar only, different people come together. It's an interesting play of tension and violence. The movie is professional done while it's still a rather cheap production (probably the salary for Michael Madsen and the other actors was by far the most expensive thing). Good actors in this movie, good acting by them. It's by far not a brilliant movie, I wouldn't even say it's very good. It's a good movie, an OK movie, that is quite entertaining and let's the time go by fast. You will want to see it through to the end after the first 20 or so minutes at least that's how it was for me. A must for Michael Madsen Fans, and still a possibility for everyone else.
