Storyline

When the under-worlds of crime and show-biz collide, hit-men buddies Max and Sylvester are suddenly thrown in the midst of bizarre events and soap-like drama. Faced with the onslaught of sleazy intrigues and silicon boobs, friends must still complete their task - retrieve a missing shipment of drugs. And then, there's also a kidnapped delivery boy to save, loads of people to kill, dangerous women to love. The trick is not to lose your head. Or your balls. Whichever goes first.

Well made, interesting, but hard to stomach
11 September 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

A corrupt cop is hired by some high level mobster to investigate some missing merchandise. He is joined by a colleague who is fighting with his wife over breast implants. The main cop also meets a lady at a gas station who has the hots for him. But she also steals his gun at some point.

Three goofy thugs buy some cop uniforms to steal a briefcase. But things go wrong from the beginning for them. One of them is hit by a car, and on the day of the robbery someone gets ahead of them.

At the very beginning we are given a definition of what a soap opera is. I guess it's somewhat of a warning. The story is told in five acts, but in a non-linear fashion jumping in time and between groups of characters. It turns out that every event in the movie is relevant and every character is somehow connected to the story. In the end all the lose ends are tied, we learn about the woman and the gun, the main mobster, the three goofs, and everyone else. And there sure are a lot of characters in this movie, but not much of a main character. The cop is more of the silent type and while corrupt doesn't do anything outrageous. His sidekick is supposed to be the funny one, but he gets annoying fast. Much is made of breast implants and of a bet whether people will sleep with someone how is married.

Unfortunately this is really done like a long episode of a soap opera. With hysterical screaming non-stop, tons of characters and intricate relationship between them all. For each character we learn something about his/her private life. However, the concentration needed to keep up with everything is hard to maintain given the obnoxious yelling. For better or worse- probably worse- this movie is also meant to be a comedy. While soap operas take themselves too seriously, this movie doesn't at all. And it doesn't help because this movie just isn't funny. While it is marketed as being somewhat extreme in violence (hence it's sold as Shoot 'em Down in some markets), political incorrectness and nudity- it's not even that. There's a bit of violence, one short scene of nudity and some sexist/racist dialog- it's nowhere near to what it could and should have been. This movie could have been a success as a serious cops vs. robbers movie or bad guys vs. really bad guys movie. It has the story and the non-linear telling actually makes it intriguing. But the combination of soap opera elements and comedy doesn't work. Both of the aspects are awful and combined it's a disaster.
