really, really promising story. really, really bad movie
10 November 2006 | by superfastcarlSee all my reviews

If one considers acting merit, production values and directing....this movie is disappointing. Lighting and cinematography remind me of hastily taped soap operas or a teeny-bopper drama series on MTV. Pretty cheesy overall. If one considers that extreme portrayal of the characters in this movie, it's worse than any hyped, unrealistic action movie that portrays unrealistic violence. This movie is the polar opposite of American Gun, which is an extremely well done, even-handed film that shows the gray area around gun issues and the wide spectrum of people associated with guns and how violence and guns affect people's lives--without being judgmental. Instead of an intelligent discussion on gun issues, this film shows every stereotype of gangbangers, wacko cops and gun nuts. An extremely inaccurate portrayal of gun issues. I disagree with another viewer's comments here in IMDb that this movie is not slanted in it's views. Perhaps there is no overt bias, but by being inaccurate or relying on stereotypes, in effect, makes the viewpoint slanted and inaccurate. During one scene, the main character doesn't even perform the federally mandated instant background check required for all firearm purchases in all states. It simply shows him handing over firearms for cash over the counter to gangbangers. This just doesn't happen in a legal setting in this day and age. This movie is a disservice to any intelligent discussion about gun issues. And I'm a lefty liberal saying that! Guns and violence are extremely complex issues that are almost impossible to portray with both accuracy and fairness..however, this film doesn't even make an attempt to explore them with any depth for the sake of it's own contrived plot. Too bad. Sounded like an interesting movie from the plot summary on the back of the DVD cover. Watch Americn Gun instead if you want to get even an inkling of the complexities of gun ownership in America...and make up your own mind.
