Unwatchable comes to mind...

What a brash hodge podge of stolen material. Only a few notes off from being made of material copied and pasted from the peers of this genre. Don't let friends and family convince you that this is some grand opus. This is merely a student film far longer than it ever need be. Actors do what they can but sadly they can do little when a project is flawed from so many directions. The main character and his setting seems completely forced. It's one thing to enjoy a Guy Ritchie film but it's an entirely other thing to forcibly shove a bad knock off of one of Mr. Ritchie's characters into a place he has no good reason being in the first place. The only explanation for this being in the Top 500 is probably because calling in some family favors to make a few simple clicks is rather easy.
