Over a hundred people gave this film 10/10. I conclude that most of those people, or all of them, either took part in making the film and/or are related to those who did, or friends of theirs. This is not a 10/10 film. And it's not a 1/10 film. There are some mildly good parts throughout but the ending (and not because it ended) was worth the 90 minutes.
The film is about two brothers being brought up by their grandfather who is a mob boss. One brother wants to run things his way, and has a huge drug problem. He also seems to enjoy beating women. The other brother is more the type of "follow the leader". The druggie brother does, what he believes, is a good thing for him but keeps his brother in the dark about it, for a good reason.
This is a very slow film. There are action scenes but they don't last very long and nothing is really shown. The music composition is out-of-place throughout the film and it's like you're listening to elevator music and listening to music from pornographic films. And while, like in this film, some of that music is actually at times good, just like in a pornographic film, it's out-of-place in many scenes, and nonexistent in others.
The acting was okay. Some of it was poor but most of it was mildly okay (like the film). The photography wasn't too bad, I think one of the directors (if I remember) is a cinematographer when not making his own films, so, no loss there.
The biggest problem, in my opinion, was that it just dragged from one scene to the next carried along by excessive dialogue. It was as if someone always had to be speaking in every scene. As stated: the ending is worth the 90 minutes, at least it was for me.
