The intro scene was captivating with it's mood and colours. But after that, it became a mess. The director has painted the villains black and white like Sin City but the pacing is off, a bit too slow and never really gets your attention. I get that this is low budget but with skill, it should engage the audience and sadly it failed to do this. Other scenes they used soundtrack Eric throws the mood continuity of the movie and it now felt like a mish mash of music videos that makes you wonder what is this movie trying to show??? After 20 minutes, I still couldn't figure it out and the acting has just become worse and amateur that I decided to turn this off. So here I am writing a review to warn you that you can waste your time on something better.

Okay, so this is a super low-budget indie film from an unknown, first-time filmmaker, made with a group of unknown, first-time cast, I knew going into it that it was going to be a student film of sorts, a bunch of kids with no money making a movie for the first time (like most low budget indie films). But boy was I surprised! This movie is IMPRESSIVE! The cinematography, acting and story were very well crafted, and some of the actors were amazing!!! (looking at you, Elyse Price). Some of them, not so much ("Hollywood" Sam Barone). Overall - this movie is a very well made "low budget indie film", and if you're an indie film fan you should go into it expecting to see a low budget indie film. You are going to be in for a really fun ride! So manage your expectations and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth the watch!
At first I didn't really warm to the movie, the first few minutes proved to be coming from a jagged, low budget perspective... Yet somewhere lurking was a Tarantinoesc bombshell that went from lukewarm to boiling hot and easily could have been far darker than it actually was. What could have been a horrific ending up being dark poetry. The direction, continuity and acting sometimes felt a little lacking, but it's easy to forgive as everyone seemed very genuine and all those involved are likely to mature into making a higher production value despite the low budget. All in all, it felt more authentic than many big budget movies that wow us with CGI and global actors that earn millions. Personally I will keep my eyes open for more from Usher Morgan...
