2 men are chained up in a basement. The captor has cameras aimed at them and is streaming it on the internet - turning it into a "trial" on the held, retired judge's last court case. The viewers become the jurors.

William states that he attempted to kill himself seven times, ten if you count his cries for help. They are; 1) Hanging; but the ceiling light fixture could not support his weight. 2) Gassing; by using a water hose to direct a vehicle's exhaust into its interior, but the vehicle broke down. 3) Booze & Pills; but the combination made him sick and he vomited it all out. 4) Electrocution; by standing in a bathtub of water and dropping a toaster in it, but the electrical charge was only strong enough to short out his fuse. 5) Stepping into traffic, but the vehicle that hit him was an ambulance and he received immediate medical attention and survived. 6) Jumping' William attempted to throw himself off a bridge but was caught by a passing boat managing to only break his finger. 7) Gassing, again; He stuck his head in his oven with the gas turned all the way up, but hadn't paid his gas bill so the gas ran out.
He also mentioned throwing himself into a lion's pit at the zoo, but the lions were sleepy that day and he had to climb out ten minutes later. See more »

I have to say, this one was surprisingly enjoyable - a fun Sunday night popcorn flick. A few writing and editing issues and the pacing could've been better, but otherwise a decent and refreshing new concept on the hit-man genre that was funny and entertaining. Casting was on point, as was the cinematography and directing. It's a 7/10 from me
