This really seemed from the packaging, summary, & trailer that it had potential. Great actors, great location, great storyline. But clocking in at just over eighty minutes the whole thing felt incredibly rushed.
The acting was considerably decent given that John Leguizamo carried more than 95% of the running time (very well nonetheless) on his shoulders. However, the story line has a minimum of a dozen plot holes & even more areas where additional insight into the major elements of the story were missing. John is the only one that benefits from any real character development, or, over development.
Not usually one to spout off & generally very casual when approaching & even more easy-going with reviewing and recommending movies, I truly felt like this could have been so much more & am slightly frustrated that it was obviously as rushed as it was. Supporting this, at least twice in the 'Behind The Scenes' featurette on the DVD the director refers to his actors (Marisa Tomei, etc.) having 'a small window of time'.
Adjust your expectations, check it out casually and enjoy it for what's it's worth. An over-the-top John Leguizamo showcase that does at the very least & at the expense of all others involved, well represent his range as an actor.
