Malcom's done with his life. Only the noise of Crystal Meth gives him a reason to keep going - everything else it has long regardless. Equipped with a bag full of weapons and self-made bombs, he makes his way to the nearby mall to really stir things up. On his personal war campaign, he not only changes his life radically, but also the fate of other people who are in the wrong place at the same time: a teenager whose favorite pastime is smoking pot in his dreary existence, a housewife, where their best days have been left behind, a greedy businessman whose only desire is to increase his wealth and a depressed pervert.Written by

Malcolm, want your dinner now? I made fish sticks with mashed potatoes and string beans, okay? Did you hear me? Well, if you're not gonna tell me what you want, I'm gonna make your decisions for you,and you get what you get. Christ, the older you are, the more you remind me of your father. You hear that, Mal?

What is that thing?

Did you just do what I think you did? Oh, Mal! Who's gonna clean this up now...

What a shame to see such competent actors like Vincent D'Onofrio, Gina Gershon, and Peter Stormare in this wallowing, meandering thing. Lacking in clear direction, message, quality of writing, acting ability (from most other members of the cast), and filled with pseudo intellectual fluff delivered from a totally unbelievable character. While the attempt to tackle such gritty subject matter was admirable in it's ambition, the execution was severely lacking. Sincerely wish Joe Hahn better luck in his future feature directorial efforts.
The visual effects were interesting, digitally grimy (in a good way), and flowed well with the emotion of the film, but were a bit overdone early on. They felt dumped on you from the start without any context to support them, and unfortunately cliché by the end.
