Good movie
21 September 2008 | by bob4081See all my reviews

This is a good movie to watch if you like dark action dramas. The plot is twisted and shows the darker side of life and the black market. There are some hot sex related scenes, and pretty good acting throughout. The colors and effects used in production are characteristic of other contemporary works in this genre.

I particularly like how the film shows a "real life" scenario where the ones involved in dirty deeds are powerful and vulnerable all at the same time. It also shows the women as being cunning and treacherous, rather than just pawns who stand behind the men. Mad props to the director/producer for going out on a limb and taking this approach. It adds another level of sexual something and uniqueness.

Not a movie for those who like happy endings that give you all the answers. If you like movies like The Usual Suspects, Trainspotting, or Requiem for a Dream, ...you should check this film out.
