The Throwaways: ugly film but I liked it.
10 January 2016 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

Let's be clear: this is an ugly film. Many things (too many to list them) are under the common standard so I don't expect you to like it.

I personally enjoyed it, however: it's ironic (so ironic that I wondered if it were made ugly on purpose). It's full of great artists, starting from James Caan and ending with Jeremy Renner (movie's executive producer). It has a good plot (it could have been a very nice graphic novel), dumb enough to not be taken too seriously…

But above all it transmits a special kind of fun, as if the cast (which was made of very well known actors such as Noel Clarke, Sam Huntington, Katie McGrath or Matt Dillon's brother, Kevin) had a really good time playing bad and good guys in one of the cheapest locations you could imagine, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
