Trivia

Locations signs for the shoot originally read "Urinal Cakes", but after the producers decided this may attract too much attention to the shoot, they changed them to "Houston McGregor" aptly named after the Director's, Brian A. Miller's, pet Beagle. See more »

Goofs

In the bar scene where Ray and Charles are talking, they each have a glass of whiskey. They take drinks emptying the glasses. The next scene you see the glasses are empty. As Charlie is writing a note for Ray, one glass is half full. When Charlie slides the note to Ray, both glasses are empty. After Charlie leaves, Ray picks up the note and you see the glass is half full again. When Ray makes a phone call to Walter and the glass is empty again. See more »

Man mountain meets iffy script and no fight choreography...
18 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, I tried. I sat right thru 'til the end. For a while, I was OK with the script, and then, for a while, I thought it was the directing that made this pretty mediocre effort work. 'Til I saw him trying to sneak about, which made him look like a gorilla...

OK. Off the fence. It doesn't work. Reviews have said the first bit is slow - well, it is. Slow but pretty tight.

Then there's a long, (a really long), pause, then, well, it finishes.

And, well, it's really all down to casting. I mean, if it's not script (thin, but, well, OK), or direction, (transparent, after about 40 mins in), it's gonna be casting.

Danny Trejo. Lazy casting? Hmmm. You decide....

In the end, I was honestly looking forward to Craig Fairbrass being on screen, 'cos at least he can act... And I'm a Brit, and usually I think he's rubbish, but this time he took all the scenes he was in, which said, well, something...

So. Dave Bautista. Better than some ex WWF debuts, but learn to act, get a better fight coreog, and stop creeping around like a gorilla who filled his pants. Oh, and Amy Smart? (who did a passable job), she's tiny. A third your weight. I mean, what were you THINKING?
