Just because I'm telling you this story doesn't mean I'm alive at the end of it. This could all be pre-recorded and I could be talking to you from the bottom of the ocean. Yeah, it's that kind of a story. Because things just got so out of control.

I can't believe Oliver Stone made this movie. And how poorly it was made. If not for a 'name' director, this would be consigned to straight to video land. It's based on a book by an absolutely atrocious author, Winslow, who writes pure unreadable dreck. So come to think of it, the movie is quite true to the book. Nonexistent plot, acting and unwatchable voice over narration. I'm embarrassed for myself that I took it out of the library, and for anyone associated with making it. And I like Benicio del Toro. Save your brain, give this a wide berth. This is my first ever IMDb user review, and I'm getting the error message that I don't have ten lines of text. It seems to me that is a quite arbitrary and unreasonable requirement. I've said all that needs to be said regarding this movie in the first few sentences.
