A Canadian Review of a Canadian Indie Flick...
3 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Like so many movies coming out these days, this film starts off strong... but ends up flat. A group of pro criminals on the run after a big score pick the wrong place to low law. OK, its been done.. but not for a while, and it could have been a fresh take on the story. The characters are developed, and by the midway mark you can see and understand the different personality conflicts and connections, despite all the black sunshades, grunts and head bobs cinema gangsters are for some reason restricted to communicating with. But regardless the movie sets itself up as an exciting and promising thrill ride.

However halfway through you realize the concept is flawed. By the time the bodies start to pile up, you realize you're not in for a ride but a slow crawl to a sad finish. The movie tries to become something its not, by adding old, typical action movie one-liners and having an ending with absolutely no twist at all (whoever says there's a twist ending must have watched another movie). The subplots finish at dead ends and the characters degrade into voiceless masses. The action is over the top and corny by the end. "And it started off so well", you will say to yourself...

I'm a Canadian who loves and wants Canadian film to progress, but we're not going to do it with movies like these. Please, please, please... remember movies need endings too!
