Quid pro Quo
23 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

No one gets out alive. The rich brother gets his jollies but isn't there to enjoy them. His ne'er do well brother manages to finally get his slimy hands on the fortune, but makes a fatal mistake (an I mean fatal). This is entertaining in a silly kind of way. It also seems pretty cruel, but then that brother had no moral sense whatsoever. This is certainly an expansion on the original story which is much less techy. It is in each of us to wish that those treat others badly ultimately get theirs, so it is with the worst of motivations that I enjoy this. There are some amazing plot holes having to do with the total cooperation of the victim, putting himself in dire straits. Still, it's a lot of fun for those of us not in the coffin.
