Most entertaining and refreshing.
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

You can look around for a long time before finding something of a film noir gem like this. If you like your entertainment hot and sharp with a great deal of style then this is where to go. One thing that has struck me is that this is a genre that has received little attention form the big studios over recent years. You can image how pleased I was to find an independent producer like this getting in on the action and delivering this result. This was a refreshing movie with a budget behind it certainly but that has not been spoiled. It retains the creativity and edge of good indie cinema having not lost the unique quality that this can, but does not always bring to the screen. I'm looking forward to a sequel to this.
