But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game - with large guns pointed at everyone. Written by
This film had the potential to be the new pulp fiction, but it misses certain things. It got cool actors, a good plot and great music.
It is worth seeing, but the opening scenes made me hope for a super-great unforgettable movie, it was a little disappointing. The director borrows a lot from Tarantino and that is a good thing. I would like to see more speech action between the actors.
The ending could also have been a little more open.
Anyway, go see it. Cooler than a lot of other rubbish I have seen lately.
This director will probably make greater films in the future!
