Ramsy and Kantz have soaked up movie influences that obviously go back decades.But it is to Tarantino's generation,(my generation) that these funny and energetic moviemakers belong.
Its not just "influence" that you see, but out and out theft. From "Reservoir Dogs", opening ally walk, to "Goodfellas" cooking, gun selling, helocoptor watching sequence, these guys are caught red handed. but it works. It all hits as refreshing and some what new, although clearly falling into the Q.T. world.
You should also marvel at the fact that these guys made the whole thing for about 300,000. With that minimal budget, and (according to them) hurried shooting schedules, they have created a movie far superior to so many other boring action films. Compare this film to "Gone in Sixty Seconds, or BadBoys I&II, and you should be impressed.
As far as the acting goes, it's very good for an inexperienced (mostly) cast. I think Treach(the rapper) could have a real future in action films, he carries this one well with an almost constant running narrative, which is engaging and funny. Plus ladies he's willing to do full frontal. The scene chewing thief in this film however is Sam Scabber, as the "disgruntled, older, face like a fist) hitman. His performance will leave you wanting to see more of him.
All in all a fun action flick. Enjoy
