Red, a safe cracker who has just been released from prison, is trying to hold his family together as his past catches up with him in the form of Luc, a psychopathic contract killer who's seeking revenge for the death of his brother.
A skilled cook has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business.
I made it through the whole thing. That's my best one line review for this horrible train wreck.
I get what they're hoping to achieve. They want to make it some sleuths uncovering a huge scandal but they can't dress up the garbage enough and I wasn't the only one rolling their eyes at the screening I attended.
"What world is this in?" was what I heard two rows in front of me. Followed by everyone chuckling.
Damian Lewis looks more like Mike Myers as Fat Bastard than Rob Ford and the drug dealers they had in this looking like morality heroes was quite funny. I guess being from Toronto and lived through this is funny to see how desperate the filmmaker was to alter the story. Yes he smoked crack. The people who sold the video smoked it with him and sold it to him. They came to this country and hurt it as much as possible. Yet in this movie they're portrayed as good guys.
It's sad to see something like this. Rob Ford said no to unions and even after his death they're still out for blood. Thankfully this mess is the best they can come up with.
Everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
