Good surprise, damn excellent one. I did not expect so, but after all why not? Not many women in this brutal and bloody tale of a young man, grand son of a safe cracker who, after his grand pa death, is abducted by a bunch of hoodlums in order to crack a safe in an old mansion basement. And not in a bank. Maybe I missed something, but it is not explained how the safe arrived here, nor where it came from. But, I repeat, maybe I did not pay enough attention. This movie is in the RESERVOIR DOGS way of filming, and it is obvious that Quentin Tarantino's first feature inspired this one. But that doesn't remove anything from it. Although, it is not as good as the QT's film. Brutal, bloody and also a bit talkative, but who cares? One thing could have been better. In the youngster's memory, when he remembers his grand father teaching him how to crack a safe, he uses a drill, of course, and also a micro camera that he puts in the hole, in order to watch the safe combination. That's his memory, when his grand pa was alive. But in the reality of the story, when he (SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS) finally opens the safe, we see no camera at all, only the drill and its metal support.
Good film anyway, but it will never be released in France, even in straight to DVD. Dead sure of this.
