A very good premise that is derailed by poor casting, directing and ultimately dry acting. With a decent budget and Neeson, Statham quality actors this movie could really have done well Just another good movie plot in the wrong hands
It's like they looked to find the least competent actors they could find to support Cuba Gooding Jr. He, as always, was extremely good, and this served to make the other actors look even worse. The plot idea itself had potential. Too bad the follow up was so weak.
Unfortunately, the true potential of the material isn't developed beyond snips of depravity, which is a shame. After all, in the DTV world, a film like this could use every last morsel of shock value it can find. I say SKIP IT!!!
This movie was HORRID. From the cheesy opening credits, to the horrible writing, terrible acting, cheap digital video quality, and the fact that Cuba Gooding played a supporting role to absolute nobody's... this movie was just the worst. I don't know who should be more ashamed: Cuba Gooding for making it or me for watching it through to the end. Don't bother!!
Ten minutes in and I nearly stopped watching, but a tale of two men meet in a bar, one drunk, one a professional hitman kept me going. Sure there are improbable moments, but Cuba Gooding carries the film to its ultimate conclusion.
Not a bad film at all. And a 'different' story line...now who would you like to see killed in your life ?...And a lesson to be careful what strangers you speak to in a Bar when you have had a few drinks ! Cuba Gooding was the number one actor here. Nicely filmed in the daylight...none of those annoying 'dark' scenes. Plenty of action along the way. Worth seeing. Why the low rating on Rotten Tomatoes ?
