      Adrian M Heartfelt movie. A serious yet a bit comic drama, done with lots of fondness, by actors and the director alike. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/02/24 Full Review Steve D It is hard to care about these characters given the setup. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad. Anything with Christopher Walken is usually well-produced and worth a watch. He plays such an interesting creep. This film is more about the characters than action, and it's about what happens when you agree to commit a crime with morons. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I remember liking this film... Don't remember it very well though. Time to watch it again! :D Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I remember liking this film... Don't remember it very well though. Time to watch it again! :D Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A character-driven crime drama featuring Christopher Walken in one of his more subtle roles. The performances are great but the story is on a mild side. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
