gone south
12 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

got off to an intriguing start. next a very convoluted family set up: the lead is a cop with a leftist father and a rightist/fascist brother; wife left him for his partner. then came an improbable story line. together with all the cardboard caricatures. plutonium stealing Russians. rotten red neck cops. corrupt FBI. revolutionaries. terrorists. whore with a heart of gold. naked women. naked male victims. did we miss anybody else? of course we have to make everybody going thru the motions. the bad guys sneer, the third degree, kids pining for absent dad etc etc. and in the midst of a supposedly climax, our hero and his dad lay in bed inside hostile territory - bonding? watch this if you wanna learn how not to make a movie!
