Storyline

Esther, Lamar and Zed, three thugs who live together, are weary of surviving small businesses. They decide to move up a gear. To do this, they get in touch with Armand, a former godfather in the middle. If the universe of the trio rhymes with carelessness, that of Armand knows its rules and its codes that we do not transgress. But they all have one thing in common. They are big mouths or, to be more precise, they all have strong capacities to be mythomaniacs.

Run away!
20 September 2002 | by CyberlapinouSee all my reviews

Stay away from that film, especially if you don't speak French! The only interest is maybe, and I say maybe, the vivid dialogues, strongly inspired by French dialogue writer Michel Audiard, which are impossible to translate and in my opinion become quickly boring, even if they're played by funny actors.

The rest of the film is just awful. No story, no pulse and especially an incredibly ugly visual style which reaches its peak during the final gunfight, probably the worst action sequence I ever saw, which proves that it needs more than few good intentions to become the new Tarantino and especially the new John Woo. But one day France will prove it can make good action films. One day...
