Lester Tremor says that he looks "like that dude, the one in Platoon (1986), he's in Sniper (1993)". That "dude" is Tom Berenger, who plays Walter Weed in this film. See more »

OK, I am posting this as it seems that too many people reviewing this have completely missed the point.
First, the Special Effects: Yes they were done the way they were (badly, with a comic slant) on purpose. For two reasons. One, they were emulating British gangster flicks (for reasons of budget or style - your guess) - and second they were following a particular anarchist film style which you may be familiar with - Natural Born Killers anyone? Or perhaps you think Mr. Oliver Stone was also being cheap with the special effects? The scene of the rednecks tooing and froin in the truck with the background changing the way it did was a direct homage to that film.
Second and last - you don't go to a film like this expecting it to solve your pointless existence. You go to have a laugh and hopefully some fun. This film did that pretty good.
Too short if you ask me. The director had more ideas then made the screen - I blame the editing :) Cheers
