Heavily borrowing ideas from classics and laying it on the cheap
Watching the trailer of this the first thought that came into my mind was that this is a remake of De Niro's "Driver". I recently got a chance to watch this film last night and I must say it was pretty bad.
Turns out I wasn't entirely wrong about the movie, the main character is definitely the superficial version of DeNiro. This character is a walking cardboard, I know they were going for the strong silent type bordering on a psychotic outbreak but there is no meat to his character.
The music selection was easily the most terrible part of this movie, it destroyed any tension that was to be gotten.
The plot is the work of mediocrity in the land of generic plot threads. There are a total of 4 or 5 people and its very easy to see where the whole mess is going to lead to. Also this being about heists and robberies where are the cops except for the first 5 mins of the dumbest escape scene ever.
The acting was decent (cept for the driver) but really hardly any dialogue, mostly its the terrible choice of music in the background.
The camera work was'nt bad terrible but its slow plodding pace made the movie feel slower than it was.
There was a time where Indie flicks actually told good stories at the cost of production rate now its just as aimless as the Hollywood blockbusters...
I can't say I did not see this coming but I was still curious seeing as how I didn't hear a word about this movie from anyone around here in Boston (which is very surprising). As a tribute I gathered my roommates to watch the first one and then a double feature with the second. As expected the first was well received but 20 minutes after the second everyone fell asleep (I included) but I woke a few minutes later struggled to watch the whole thing.
The conclusion: My God!!! What the hell did I just see. I can barely even remember the movie parts cause its so bad. The very beginning of the movie makes you wonder what the hell is going on. Then as it keeps going you realize they are trying be more complex and trying to have the same humor at the same time which all falls flat all to badly. The thing to realize is that most of the new characters you see are nothing but mere stand in for the original. Julie Benz is terrible as Eunice bloom, very hot but its very obvious that was the reason they had her for this film. Also if anyone has seen the first they know that the funny man is longer in the picture, that is why you will wonder who/and why is the third such a stand out. his addition gives the feeling that I am in a Rob Schnieder flick. Perhaps if it were viewed as a parody it may barely pass but as a sequel to a decent movie... I don't know what happened here.
