Storyline

The town of Westbrick is a rough place to live in. It is here that the young rookie cop Matthew lives with his wife. Meanwhile, notorious serial killers Billy and Barbara embark on a killing spree in order to get notoriety. Matthew gets his first assignment with his much older partner William when he unfortunately crosses paths with Billy and Barbara. William gets killed in the line of duty by Billy and Barbara but that's not enough for them: they torture and brutally murder Matthew's wife. Things get even worse for young Matthew when he loses his job, being wrongfully blamed for William's death and now charged with murder. Matthew finds himself isolated; there is no reason to count on a corrupt legal system and even less of a chance of being found innocent. He goes on a rampage for vengeance and slowly turns into a mad psychopath just like Billy and Barbara. Written by Melany Denise

It really tries 2 be cool but ultimately fails.
15 March 2010 | by get_wildSee all my reviews

I think that with this movie the director really tried to make a hybrid version of "Natural Born Killers", "Sin City" and "The Crow" and he almost did it. The story while not too original still manages to keep you interested and the same can be said for the cinematography, the animation sequences, the camera work and the dialogue.

Unfortunately though I think the place where this movie really falls down hard is the quality of the acting. Sami Darr as Billy deserves a special mention in this category. He was trying so hard to be menacing and unpredictable like Woody Harrelson did as Mickey Knox but he came across about as scary as Mickey Mouse by comparison.

Overall it was a nice effort with some very good ideas (Such as the long travelling shot where the camera takes us flying through the city scape, passing through windows and keyholes along the way) but ultimately it's a very disappointing experience.
