well made but just misses its mark
13 October 2009 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

I can't say I wanted to like this as we're too full of dark humor glorify brutality themed movies, and even if this was tongue in cheek and self aware black humor, it just wasn't reverential enough to make it shine. The end result was kinda nothing. which is weird cos the lead 2 guys were good, they played well, but it just was missing the it factor, maybe it was script or direction, but no, this wasn't worth the time to watch it. maybe we've had too many of these clever dark and uncomfortable movies and unless you're pushing the boundaries and shocking then there's not much point in your entry. this wasn't boundary pushing or shocking hence it failed.
