Dark and Gritty
13 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like films like Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs than you'll love the Bag Man. Really good neo noir film with dark humor and a gritty, hip, edgy factor. John Cusack is great as "Jack" the hit-man assigned by Robert De Niro to look after a mysterious bag with unknown contents. Most of the film takes place at a seedy motel that's the perfect setting for an offbeat crime thriller like this. Very cool, and a lot of fun. Also, look for Rebecca Da Costa the film's mysterious heroine to become a big star. She's not only stunning, but also a very good actress. As a big fan of the mysterious Tarantino-esque films, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fun flick.
