Little boys making movies,
This review is from: Bound [DVD]  (DVD)
Bound uses the old storyline of stealing from the mob, tied to a desire by Jennifer Tilly's Violet to leave her husband. She meets Corky (Gina Gershon) and strikes up the lesbian flames that she professes to have always felt. This new relationship forms the basis of taking on Caesar (Violet's man).
There are plenty of twists and tensions to keep the story flowing, with the best laid plans clearly not working out. Short of that, there is not much else about the film that stands up.
First of all, you can't help but think that the Wachowski brothers were trying to come up with any story that would pave the way for them to film naked women writhing around with each other. Once you get past that, you have to decide whether Caesar (which in itself is a pretty ridiculous name for the villain) is either a bit of a lame wannabe hardman or simply quite sinister. I'm not convinced. The rest of the cast are so wooden and stereotypical that they could have been written on the back of a hair strand.
In all, a reasonable film for watching if it comes on TV.
