Now, you might be wondering what the hell this movie is about. Weapons, but do not mistake guns and knives as the plot--the true weapons are the characters themselves.
Showing the turning-point of urban society, the film opens up with Cannon getting his head blown off. Yes, within the first few seconds of delving into his delicious burger, Cannon's character bites the dust. Don't fret, though. It actually leads us into a "Pulp Fiction"-esque plot.
A rapist, a drug-addict, a nobody, a hot-head, a rebel. These are the characters we are introduced to within the first half of the film--all of them confused, angry, and broken.
I will not detail much of the plot; however, I will say that the film is a must-see! I love dramas, and this one actually competed in the 2007 Sundance Grand Jury competition for BEST DRAMATIC FEATURE. Excellent performances by Cannon, Dano, and Smith--all who settle into the darkness within their powerful characters.
