Storyline

How would you react if three years after the death of your father, you receive a letter signed by him inviting you to visit an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere in China? Curious in nature, you decide to set off on this adventure. Here's the snag, when you arrive in front of the house (which looks more like a bunker), you realize that there are other visitors summoned as well. Four guys show up with the same letter you have! All five characters, Monk, Casino, Black Jack, Shang and Poker have something in common. All carry guns, have dangerous reputations and are wanted by the police. Unexpectedly the door to the house is opened by a mysterious woman and shortly after entering they notice that they are all locked inside. The house is surrounded by police and they can not escape the psychotic killer that wants to wipe them out. After shocking plot twists and with a growing suspicion of each other, they come to realize that they have only one hour to live. Written by Tom van Dell

Would be better if written and directed by third graders.
13 April 2008 | by jessekillshookersSee all my reviews

I recently watched this movie (for free) and I was sadly, sadly disappointed.

The only situation in which I would recommend watching this movie is if you are planning on watching another movie in the near future, and want to have a new appreciation for it. After watching this movie, you'll be in awe over the cinematic quality of "Living Dead : Rave to the Grave" and think the dialog in "Meet The Spartans" could only have been written by Sir William Shakespeare himself.

Everything about this movie was horribly executed, from the shaky camera to the poor audio quality.

The characters are poorly developed; when the film goes out of the way to create a connection between two characters or a back story, you're not shocked or intrigued, but you're left thinking "aw, at least they tried."

The fact of the matter is that I've watched this movie 3 times now, and I still have no idea what's going on.

Also, the characters are all cliché, played-out stereotypes. The angry black man from Brooklyn, the single mother, the sexist anti-American Frenchman, the greasy Italian mob boss, the black-belt Chinese fighter, and the repressed-childhood-conflicted-overly-emotional-middle-aged white man.

In order to make this movie more interesting, I suggest playing a few How-Hilariously-Bad-Can-It-Get Games :

1) Count how many times DMX gets angry for no reason. 2) Count how many times they use the same track of footsteps in the background(You'd be surprised) 3) Pick out the scenes in which the actors clearly forget their lines and attempt to ad-lib it.

In conclusion, if you were planning on watching this movie, I would suggest doing something more pleasurable, such as shoving a fork in your ear. Or maybe a spoon, depending on your masochistic preferences.
