Alejandro de la Rosa,
Kind of literally too. The movie references/steals/gives nods to so many other movies that I couldn't write them all up if I wanted too. And while some movies fall into the trap of being just contemporary, this movie goes classic. And while it is nice to see something like Godfather amongst other movies being "cloned" here, the question is: does this as movie aim at the right audience for them to get all the references? You would be forgiven to think that the movie aims too high for its own good.
Still I give them props for trying and while it might feel like a mess to most, some may find something in this "mix" they do like. Like the saying goes about one person considering something trash and another person thinking it's gold. Same can apply here, you may even look up the movies you might never heard or seen before. Which overall would be a good thing
