This could have been a lot better.

Saw this on Netflix and figured why not, boy was I wrong. Once the story gets going it kind of steam rolls downhill. The backgrounds of the main characters are just kind of thrown out there and never really built upon. There was a good performance from Bai Ling as Black, but other than that were mostly staring at the TV in disbelief at where this story was headed and ended up. I seen most of these actors in other movies and I know they can act but here their talents are kind of wasted. It's like the writers were like the plot is kind of lacking let's throw some T&A in there to keep people watching. It's one of those pictures were at the end you feel that you've lost some brain cells just by watching.
