Things start badly and go rapidly downhill when, during the robbery, Ritchie and his Russian accomplices are forced to take hostages because they are trapped by the police on the unused 13th floor.

Nonsensical splatter comedy
2 November 2011 | by Matt KrachtSee all my reviews

Obviously, this movie isn't for everyone. However, if it works for you, you'll probably wonder why nobody else in the room is laughing, as you're falling off the chair, gasping for breath. Or maybe that's just me.

Admittedly, this is a nonsensical, surreal story that doesn't even pretend to have pretensions toward coherence or believability. Whereas part of the movie takes place in Russia, all the "Russian" actors speak in hilariously bad, over-the-top parodies of Russian accents. This might be a deal-breaker for you, or it might be what pushes you to proclaim this the best movie ever made, to the disgust of everyone else.

Trying to describe the plot would be pointless, as it wouldn't make any sense, and it sounds really dumb. The first half of the movie is more traditional, with real characters and a half-hearted attempt at a plot. The second half, however, is basically just a splatter comedy, and it pretty much abandons all the plot elements of the first half, in favor of absurdist humor and gore. In that sense, it's somewhat like Peter Jackson's Dead Alive.

If you like black comedies, splatter comedies, or cult movies, you should check this out. Just be warned: it's a bit low budget, and if the thought of Satanic serial killers with really bad Russian accents doesn't make you giggle, you'll probably find this movie insultingly stupid.
