Intriguing and overlooked stylish crime drama
5 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

I got to see this film by a few fliers and links sent to me by Directorslive.com (good site, check it out if you can). And I thought the film was actually well done. Ignore the other lone review on IMDb (written by user howlswolf). The user doesn't justify the film clearly and what he wrote really doesn't sound at all like even saw the film.

The film is about four group of friends whom are Wall Street investors investing in a big investment but what they don't know is that they invest in a drug lord in Mexico and things don't seem to take its place as they see it. Green Guys has a good vibe to it and it does remind one of past gritty crime dramas/thrillers. It's filled with good acting and sharp dialogue (including a quite hilarious metaphorical speech given by the drug lord about his gun! and other clever witty quotable one-liner throughout). The performances were all pretty good by the four main leads, but in my opinion Billy (Christopher Redman) stole the show and most of the scenes he was in (especially two in particular- without giving too much away, one hilarious scene where he does a bizarre kidnapping- around the 65th min, and a great speech towards the end of the film). His character was to me the most intriguing and I was interested in what he was saying. Described to be the most vulnerable of the bunch with an inner nerd who seems to want to conquer the world. The quietest and shyest of the bunch. The lead of the film Travis (Kris Lemche) was also great, as the leader of the crew- usually an unpredictable or slimy hot head but was always looking for ways to achieve what they were doing. The other two guys- Andrew (David J. Phillips) and Levi (Darrel Davenport) were also complementary. All in all they each had some special moments and scenes which they stole. And I think that is what was great about this film. Also the camera work was actually really well done and it seemed top notch (this always helps when watching films). So Congrats to that.

The characters were interesting and we the audience got to see different sides of them. Very character driven film as it shows the true meaning to brotherhood and friendship. The film really takes off about 40 mins left because of a disastrous business meeting. From their I think the film really kicks in another gear and it ends nicely.

The film doesn't have a MPAA rating but it would definitely be equivalent to an R rating (for pervasive language- about 165+ F-words). A lot of cursing but it fits well and very little violence. One not so great thing about the film is that it is a little anti-climatic. At many moments you expect something big to happen, then it skips to a next scene. Though I think the ending was pretty good (could have been extended) as it was unpredictable and I was left with suspense. I would definitely recommend those watching it. It may surprise you. Currently many haven't seen it as it only has 25 votes with a rating of 7.
