Surprising, .. surprisingly weird as well
25 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

After a good kick off the movie is surprising and takes weird turns and I liked that.The sound editors could have done a better job and the empty spaces in sound made me wonder sometimes. I noticed that necessary evil is also a game book but its hard to tell if this movie is related to that. That this movie did not get that much attention must have been because its weirdness but then again, Danny Trejo does what he does best and some other well known actors showed their typical faces.Therefore I think that this movie deserves more attention. Everyone who likes a psychedelic weird surprise will probably enjoy this movie. And that this partly less experienced actors and writers/directors could have pulled this off is worth a Praise.

Still not great but worth watching.
