This is a dark comedy along the lines of Pulp Fiction. It is a must see, but is quite graphic. Not for kids or the squeamish.

It's possible the film makers were going for one of those "been there done that but it was fun so let's do it again" kind of sentimental audience journeys, as in "Pulp Fiction" redux, but it doesn't work here. The characters are well played but the onscreen talent is given little to work with in the way of either dialog, plot or device. Still, thanks to the combined screen talents of all involved, the movie comes in just shy of entertaining. In other words, you'll find yourself fidgeting while waiting for the next conflict to be presented so it too, can eventually be resolved. It's not a bad movie, just not all that great either. It's worth the price of a ticket, although that's really a judgment call by the one paying and his/her threshold for what qualifies as bang for the movie buck…pardon the pun.

Entertaining but predictable. Mostly predictable but with some unexpected twists which were very entertaining. I will watch it again when it comes out on DVD or HBO.
