Low Budget/Criminal Pals Forever Flick
Verified purchase
Set in California and Mexico, in the desert and filmed in California (present day).

Tom and his friend apparently were involved in a heist gone bad. They were independent criminal contractors. The mastermind did not like it one bit, so he gave Tom a mission: kill his buddy and bring back proof.

Most of the film involves the two protagonists talking. They both meet girls. More talking. The mastermind's muscle is sent to check to see if Tom carried out the instructions.

Good acting in this one but, gosh, there's no action and no real plot. Then again, it's California so don't expect much action (see also French film making). I took nothing away from this movie except anticipation of violence. When violence occurs, it is not graphic. It's rated "R", but no nudity, minimal graphic violence; I suppose the "R" is for language.

"Reservoir Dogs": Now THERE is a violent film that also has a lot of talking. This film ain't even close.

Kept my attention

I enjoyed this movie because I didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. There was a good balance of comedy and seriousness. The flashbacks and forwards were a little confusing sometimes, but all in all I liked it. I also think the actors are very talented and handled the script very well.

Take time to watch

A very laid back movie that’s easy to get into. The guy who stared in it Mike Foy is the dead ringer for this role. He did equally well in Dexter.

Believable Mobster Story w/ No Glitter * Too Slow of a Movie Though
Verified purchase
Slow was the "killer" for me. The movie was believable because of the slowness making it believable as if it is how life probably really is for a mobster, but still. . . . too slow to keep my interest.
