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.
The beginning whilst a little slow is still entertaining and much needed to set up the initial introduction of the characters. It more than kept my concentration and Hartnetts razor sharp character was a standout highlight.
If you're unsure after the initial 30mins I urge you to stick it out, many of my family weren't sure if they were going to stick around (2 sex scenes in 15mins didn't help!) but come the end of the film each one left impressed and were glad they didn't leave.
On the subject of the ending the last 20mins where they reveal the twists and turns is probably my most favourite segment of cinema ever story wise (Dad in particular was very pleased they actually explained how everyone was linked instead of leaving the audience to try and guess for themselves as many films do).
I wish there was more films like this masterpiece. If anyone knows of anymore like it please leave me a comment below on my review!
The dizzying interiors notwithstanding, the plot is slick, compelling, and insufficiently shallow to be dismissable. (And if you're a fan of 70's decor, then the interiors will be dazzling rather than as described.) The acting is uniformly convincing -- nothing less than you can expect from such an impressive cast, I suppose, though disappointments have been known -- and the story twists and turns without falling off the rails of its own ingenuity. The violence can be somewhat startling, but if you're in the mood for a thinking thriller, rent this. Or buy it, if you're a fan of any of the cast. It's a pretty good film to include in their CV's, and the plot is complex enough to warrant repeat viewing.
The Blu-Ray transfer is good and the sound is possibly the bes feature of the film in my view with a rich soundscape that in surroundsound can drag you right into the action.
