SLAM-BANG is a savage, barbarous, bloodstained grab bag of a film, but chugs along like 'The Little Malevolent Engine That Could'. Think of a Tom Tykwer project produced and directed by film students with a yen for thuggery. This extremely violent approach is more attuned to what is happening these days on the international Horror Genre scene. Never the less, SLAM-BANG is a fairly decent contribution to the genre of Gangster Noir, and does not aspire to be anything more. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD meets RUN LOLA RUN. Three And A Half Stars. This film could have been fleshed out, and padded, but it seems that the cast and crew did the best that the could with what was available. One big 'black mark' is that the production values were on the poor side. The film had a very washed out look, and did not at all help the overall impression of the work.
