I always liked Paul Walker, even though I didn’t really think he could carry an entire movie by himself. I liked JOY RIDE (Candy Cane!!) and THE SKULLS and even that TIMELINE movie of his – and I think that BRICK MANSIONS thing looks kind of good, but I never thought he was a tremendous leading man. I also thought that all of those movies that came out trying to copycat SNATCH pretty much failed – except for maybe SMOKIN’ ACES – but this was probably one of the better of them. But I don’t think that’s saying too much since we have to deal with the likes of Chazz Palminteri and Karel Roden in this thing… but we do get a little bit of Pre-Super-Famous Vera Farmiga…. YUUUUUUMMM….
What was the fucking point there? And then, a little later, a murdering pedophile couple…
And a little later, they try and spice things up with some sort of neon hockey shit. They also break one of the Cardinal Rules in this scene. At one point Walker is getting pounded in the face with hockey pucks and he’s bleeding as if the Hoover Dam had broken. The next shot there’s barely any blood on the ice. Continuity people.
The ending is a real cop out too, come to think of it. Oh well, I guess I HAVE seen worse. This is a decent little action film with some blood and some cussin’ that might be an OK time filler but it’s nothing fantastic. Oh – and Cameron bright is an ugly kid. Also oh – and – Ivana Milicevic is HOT!!!
