if you like gangster cinema, you gonna love it!
26 November 2004 | by Seth-104See all my reviews

Excellently assembled, beautiful criminal movie, maybe better than Tarantino projects. Despite fact, that plot is not so original, its very interesting. Nothing is here black and white, and even a cop can be really bad ass. Curious scenes are here as e.g throwing grenade in motorcyclist helmet or face friction on roadway. Very brutal scenes creates climate of story. this movie Shows inspirations from "Natural born killers". Fans of these movies will be satisfied. Also there's place for crazy humor. In general it's rig of good European gangster cinema. Its really worth to watch, cause there's not a lot good criminal/action movies like these. Besides i think it's good reason to admire great Monica Belluci ;)
