Good Movie
5 March 2004 | by divisionbellSee all my reviews

Since the last reviewer of this film seemed to have missed the point (as well as got too caught up in mess of foul language being used far too often...just so you know c__p = crap. You can say crap you know, it won't hurt you. Yes this movie has foul language...yes this movie has gratuitous violence...and yes some of the acting is a bit strained and even cheesy; however, this was the point of this movie. It was cheesy for effect. (Ever seen Starship Troopers??) Too bad most people can't enjoy a movie if it is the usual Hollywood drizzle that seems to hit the big screens most often these days. The movie is a free-for-all that focuses on a rather pathetic, over-the-hill man who has just lost everything he holds dear. The high point of this film is actually Jason Priestly and partner in crime...and in life. They shine. In fact this has to be one of the best roles I've seen Priestly in (he's very much out of character in this story) So if you're into just sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying a movie that never tries to take itself seriously, i recommend this film.
