Not terribly involving, despite some big shootouts in the beginning
10 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Starts off with a large amount of violence, but then turns into a heist and series of double- crosses. There's a sex scene that isn't even softcore (bra stays on), but another where it is (bra comes off).

Beyond that, what is there to say? I wasn't motivated enough to even stay in the room the whole time it was playing, getting some chores done around the apartment, while I could hear at least some of the dialogue. There's plenty of other movies to watch with similar plots that are made much better, so why waste your time with this one unless you're a particular fan of any of the actors in the movie?

The Hard Truth is in the movie, experience, but even that doesn't count for everything. The Hard Truth is also that the movie isn't all that good.
