C. Thomas Howell,
Wow man this movie was amazing and definitely exceeded my expectations. I only found out about this film because I was checking Kris Lemche's IMDb profile and I stumbled upon it. Im a big fan of his (loved him in Ginger Snaps, My Little Eye, Final Destination 3), he's way underrated and deserves to make it big in Hollwood. I just created my account today just to write a review on this film!
So about this film, it was a pleasant surprise with many funny and well crafted scenes. The acting was really well and it was very believable (probably Kris Lemche's best performance to date). One scene that made me laugh was towards the beginning which involved the Mexican drug lord (guy they were teaming up with) and he was discussing a plan with the 4 guys around a table, so he takes out his gun, lays it out on the table and gives a little funny speech comparing his gun to his d***!. "They say that a gun is an extension of a man's d***. That right there- that's my d***. I have a big d***. You know what I do with it? I f*** with it. I f*** people up with it. You boys put anything over me, you lose my money, you get f*****". You'll know what I mean when you get to the scene.
The ending was also great but not what I was expecting at all. I don't want to spoil it, just watch the trailer and you'll see what I mean (seriously the trailer spoils everything!). Basically in the closing 10 minutes or so there is a final showdown/stare-down and Ill just say it does not end pretty. Ooops!!
Anyways guys go get this film. If you're a Kris Lemche fan, I suggest seeing this film, just for him if you must (he's the lead after-all and has about the most amount of screen time). Green Guys was amazing!
