Truly awful
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was truly terrible. The writer/director made a story that is told partially through flashbacks. So at the beginning of the movie, things are confused, but by the end it's obvious who everybody is and what their motivations are. So far, so good.

The (main) problem is that the acting (and script) are so miserable. If you were wondering what a movie would be like where every actor has acting skills significantly below those of Keanu Reeves, this is the movie for you. The top good guy (the "captain", I think) talks with his back to the camera and moves back and forth in front of the person he's talking to, never staying in place for more than a sentence. The dumb henchman are *really* dumb, but not in an interesting way. Every conversation has odd pauses like they're reading off cue cards, and goes on too long. Everyone enunciates very clearly, almost as though they are aware that their film budget will not be large enough to include subtitles on the DVD.

I believe the movie is set in present day, but the black drug-dealer characters have an odd 70's vibe to them that is absurd. Not as absurd as the one scene where the head drug dealer wears a golf outfit with striped socks and a little red hat though.

By the time you get to the one-on-one fight scenes at the end (with some slow-mo action), you will be begging for this movie to be over.

And the final plot twist is so corny you will groan.
