A bit more than just cliched violence for violence's sake...
18 June 2020 | by jager-marcSee all my reviews

From the trailer I was worried this would just be gratuitous violence for violence's sake... but it was more! A pleasant surprise!

Great acting and wonderfully dark atmosphere.... You can almost feel the weight of a harsh harsh life of pain, violence and suffering on the main character's life.

The story-line/plot is very cliched but because of the great acting and the well main 'characters', those cliches somehow didn't annoy me (as it normally would have me rolling my eyes and groaning). It seems to me that this film is constantly pushing a message - which I appreciate! (I hate senseless violence and I hate glorifying violent or criminal lifestyles like mob-life or gangs even more!) This film does the opposite, it shows that those lifestyles of crime - drugs, murder etc are horrible, dark and that they TAINT you... for the rest of your life... There is a MORAL to this story which those horrible Hollywood movies usually don't show and for that, I have to write this, so it's not overlooked! Oh.. the moral, as i said above? It's about how low behavior 'taints' you and that it is UGLY. Not a high quality 'great' movie but definitely well above average and worth a look!
