DVD was extremely really confusing! Not worth watching for those who likes a lot of action movie.

"I was recommended this title by several people who prefer independent movies to the stuff that Hollywood churns out on a regular basis.
Having watched this twice, I am not convinved that I am watching the same movie as those who recommended it.
Yes, given the minute budget, and the care and attention that was obviously lavished upon it, it is a "good" movie.
Having said that, I prefer to use other criteria when judging whether or not a film is a success in my terms of understanding.
The plot jumps around and can oft-times be distracting and disjointed. It is not clear where the characters fit in with each other or how they even came to be together and even though enlightenment is achieved in this regard at the conclusion of the film it does rather leave an unsatisfactory taste in the mouth. Some of the storyline is discontinuous and never fully explained how certain things happen as they did when they are clearly not coincidental.
It is hard to flesh out some of the personalities of the characters involved who seem frequently two rather than three dimensional. The dialogue is not the greatest in the world which makes the conclusion even more dislocated given the explanatory nature of the scene.
As an advertisement of the skills of the production and direction involved, it will get some serious attention as the relative success of such a low budget production has been hailed throughout the industry. One can only hope that with a bigger budget and facilities, we shall se a more worthy film in the future."

"This is a great independent movie. It kept you wondering what was going to happen next. Who was really playing who for a fool. Phil Idrissi is awesome in this movie. I hope this brings him great parts in high budget movies. Worth the buy for your collection."
