This film either gets one star based on objective merit, or ten stars
on how well it infringes on the rarefied thin air of Ed Woodish
pretensions to greatness. I mean, I think it tried to be good.
Everybody seemed pretty earnest. But what a POS.
I saw this movie a while back, but just saw it again on Action Channel.
Missed the classic beginning chase. Comments follow on what I did catch
this time around...
This movie is like a lesson on how not to make a movie. Major points of
EDITING: Typical scene starts off with a coffee pot on a kitchen
counter. Girlfriend walks into scene, gets a mug and glass from the
cupboard, pours a coffee, then opens fridge to fill glass with orange
juice, then walks out of frame. Empty kitchen. Continuous shot, static
camera. What's the point? Why did we have to see this? For real, I was
actually starting to fall asleep.
Over and over we see an empty room, characters walk in, barely ever a
cutaway during conversation (and usually to a person not speaking???),
then characters leave, and we see an empty room again. Why? About eight
consolidated minutes of empty room shots. What the hell.
CINEMATOGRAPHY: There's this scene where Jacobs sneaks up on his
girlfriend on the couch. Lazy ass director/DP never moves the camera.
So the whole time the girl is talking to Jacobs, you only see the
side/back of her head via this wacky low-angle shot that is dominated
by a couch...the bottom part of the couch. In another scene where this
mobster is talking to his girlfriend (just before he kills her!), there
are weird stick-like shadows all over his face. Didn't anyone notice
this during filming?
AUDIO: Frankly, I never clearly heard the director comments others have
noted because he was drowned out by other ambient noise. Noises like
feet shuffling, traffic, airplanes flying overhead. Makes you really
appreciate the sound design on auto dealership commercials, etc., where
you hear the talent and only the talent.
ACTION SEQUENCES: Hard to believe this film is a contemporary of Hard
Boiled. In one ambush scene, three killers with M-16's and Uzis fire a
total of five shots, sequentially, of course. One of the bloodpacks
doesn't blow, so you just see this wad of white fabric explode out of
one victim's shirt. Just before they're shot, all the actors look like
you do when you're going to pop a balloon, stiff and all, cus you know
the bang is coming. One of the urban gangster killers then actually
slings his M-16 before hopping off the backyard deck. Surreal.
WRITING: There are too many inexplicable nonsense scenes, like when the
urban gangster punks bust into the cop's house and play darts with the
lights off. Huh? Was ist das? It's like, wow, maybe i did fall asleep
because this stuff is so complex. I don't understand!
Actual dialogue sample from another scene: "I'm gonna cut you, man!"
Eh, all the rest is on a similar level. The actors seemed into it, as
if they cared, but the performances were bad. I guess you gotta lay
that on the director. So there: horrible, lazy DIRECTION. As actors,
only Jacobs seemed to mail it in, but I think he was trying to play his
character just a bit too cool, so it just seemed like he was
sleepwalking. His name is in the end credits like six times, so he
must've made an effort.
After watching this, you will want to buy a handycam just to prove
anybody off the street could do better. And, yes, you would.
