"Breaking Vegas" Meets "Ocean's Eleven"
6 January 2006 | by astachSee all my reviews

I was a bit nervous about this flick. Having just watched Crossbones, another low-budget no-name film, with the *bad* acting to match, I was hesitant to raise my expectations very high for, or even rent, Hit Me...But being a big Ocean's Eleven fan, I decided to give it a shot anyways. Fortunately, as luck may have it, this is a surprisingly entertaining movie with (generally) more than half-ways decent acting; in fact, the lady that plays Alicia is the only one I felt that delivered a slightly sub-par (but not terrible) performance. There are a few scenes that have very abrupt endings, with no music fades, and some so short that you're left wondering why they were even added, or why they didn't extend them a little bit. But beyond all this, the cinematography is pretty good, and the movie is very entertaining--especially considering that I got it as a $2 rental from the local convenience store. Therefore, I give it a 7/10, not because it's a great film, but because it's fun, entertaining and there's even a little gratuitous nudity. Plus you have to take into account the fact that you'd probably run up a higher bar tab on New Year's Eve than they spent on this movie...Rent it or even buy it if you can get it for $10 or less.
