Coffe without Sugar... or shoot the director and the writer
31 August 2010 | by drklabsSee all my reviews

Shoot the director and the writer was a more proper title, don't wait too many things from this film ,the actors are good but the acting is bad because of the influential silly plot i suppose , its a low budget film it is obvious but with good intentions a full studio and backyard filming taking place nothing special , the only thing i liked was the actors all the casting was excellent it was the proper people for the job but with a better plot or filming i think they could have done better results than this one .Generally it is an entertaining but kinda boring film , watch it only if you don't have better things to do , or watch it for the talented actors that playing on this film without support at all and trust me the result is amazing if you understand they got no support at all.Also it is amazing how those actors made this unwatchable plot watchable with their presence not with their acting. Mediocre to awful gangster movie 4/10
