Hit and miss crime-comedy but quite impressive given the budget
28 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a story about a couple of guys who kidnap their boss's daughter for a ransom. The trouble is that they are appallingly inept kidnappers and things spiral out of control to a seriously bloody extreme.

This is a crime comedy with quite a bit of bloody violence. But it definitely plays things primarily for laughs, so the violence is never all that disturbing. It's only sporadically funny though and could best be described as amusing rather than hilarious. Some jokes are dragged out too far, such as the protracted 'how are we going to kill her' routine or the incessant phone calls from the wife of one of the kidnappers. The criminals themselves are incredibly unconvincing as guys who would ever carry out this type of abduction but I guess it's a comedy so I should really give it some slack on that front. Things end up in a big blood-bath that is reasonably well done, although pretty stupid at the same time.

This is a decent enough effort but nothing great. I think when you consider it was made for peanuts you have to give some credit though, as it's not bad at all when you take that into account.
