27 January 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Well it has it all,shooting killing and action from beginning till end.....jaaast kiddin' though you could wish for it in this gloomy australian production, with camera angles so close up to a face as you can get, ,sound and music are not moodlifting at all. i guess its played out in melbourne or maybe adelaide. its a man hi on dept and the way he struggles and looses and boozes around til he's beaten to glorynights,and like a twist of destiny makes his dept disappear, and all this in one day in his car with his child which he has custody for once in a while,because he is divorced and his ex is a muggle whitch that can kill with her eyes.

alternative title could have been, ''one day daddy day care'' or ''a day at work with my daddy'' or '' doing a line with my daddy'' or '' the day daddy almost died'' or ''my daddy doing drugs driving dining on a dime'' or '' how we made the deal with them dudes''.

must have been my worst comment on a movie, its passable,but boring nitwit that anybody with a car+cam could have done. its not a review for me unless somebody could give me a better reason to.
