Movie Reviews

I really tried to like this one...really
Laurel | Florida, USA | 11/16/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This low budget independent movie recounts the final hours of a small time drug dealer, James Dean Ray's (Kirk Harris), darkened life...hanging out, selling drugs, stealing, abusing his beautiful girlfriend, not caring much for anything past his own little selfish existence. Obviously, we are meant to feel sorry for James, the self-destructive product of a broken home, but he is far too unlikable, boring and apathetic to pull it off. I saw this movie for Peta Wilson, best known for her raw and gripping portrayl of tv's captivating "La Femme Nikita" and as the sultry lesbian murder suspect in the psychological thriller "Mercy". You can't help but fall completely in love with her... but even her intense magic can't save this one. Peta briefly and sadly plays James' abused girlfriend who ultimately seeks love elsewhere from another woman. Nothing graphic. She gets a mere 15-20 minutes from beginning to end...so disappointing. If only they had switched the characters around so that Peta was the scumbag loser and Kirk was the desperate sad eyed puppy dog, they might've struck gold!"
I know why they called this one "Loser"

"I put this movie in at 9:00 and at 9:30 I was already dozing off. There is such a thing as being too low budget and this movie proves it. The sound quality was inconsistent, so that the soundtrack blasted but conversations could barely be heard. I found myself liking everyone in the movie _except_ the main character. I even liked his abusive father more than him. I'm glad I rented it with a coupon & it only cost a dollar. Peta Wilson fans will be disappointed as well b/c Peta probably only has about 20 minutes total screen time. If you want a movie about a character who spirals downward, try "Following" by the director of "Memento"-- much better acting and a smarter plot."
A likable Loser

"Loser tells the story of a small town drug dealer during his final day. The drug dealer is played by Kirk Harris. He is certainly a likable loser despite himself. The low budget indie is played out in flashbacks that tell the story. Peta Wilson of La Femme Nikita fame plays the co-ed girlfriend of Harris. I found the film to be slow in the beginning however the gritty story is told with a lot of heart and surprising sexual tension."
Great!!!
