Watchable but feels a bit poser-ish.
3 April 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

By poser-ish I mean that it's trying to be a gritty crime ensemble flick but it's just a little 'off' in most regards.

The acting is a little 'off' at times as is the direction, editing and the cinematography isn't the best, they are trying to make it look fancy but instead manages to do the exact opposite.

The overall plot is pretty cool but the dialogue could definitely have done with some enhancements with a lot of cheesy lines that feels like they were taken out of a soap-opera at times.

So yeah it's not a film that grabbed me by the edge of my seat and occasionally my mind wondered astray but for the more-part it managed to keep my interest.

So yeah watchable but flawed, 5.5/10 from me.
