This film has sadly not been well received by everyone, who seem to be under the impression that this is a poor man's Pulp Fiction or Guy Richie movie. It certainly is a gangster flick, but it is a light weight one, packed with humour and sassy one liners.
Pulp Fiction-in my opinion-was over hyped pretentious drivel, that thought itself nihilistic and hip-and true, so does this film, but at no point does it attempt to take itself seriously, like Tarintino movies.
There is not much point re-iterating the plot line, but it is just a film about mistaken identidy, that has more twists and turns than the motorway traffic during a football game. Some you can see a mile off, but my hint is-don't try and guess, just sit back...feet up...drink in hand...and watch, with a sigh of relief.
If you are one of those pop culture boffins then you may feel you have a right to be scathingly critical about this film. But the truth is that it is a mild mannered and creatively derranged gangster flick-not in the same vein as 'hardcore gangster' movies.
Josh Harrent is a bit of an iffy lead, but combined with such a strong cast, and the forever sexy Lucy Lui, there is not much to dislike.
If a gun was pressed against my head, i would admitt that it really is a three star film, but it so enjoyable, to hell with it. I am unashamedly giving this guilty pleasure four stars.
