Don't waste your time, 'cus life is short


In the very beginning, say, maybe 10 minutes, the movie seemed to be
quite promising and I really thought at that moment, Bautista might
pull through like Stone Austin or the 'Rock' to become the next WWE
superstar turned movie star. But after ten minutes, I have realized
that this was a very hollow boring movie due to a very weak elementary
level screenplay so boring, so clichéd and so contrived. What I saw was
a chain-smoking down-and-out ex-cop and ex-con who could not find a
decent job after a 9 years sentence and was released from prison. So of
course he became a mob's night club's doorman+bouncer+floor manager,
got the authority to give credit to gambling loser. And of course,
lousy things always happened to bad luck chain smoker, the night joint
was robbed by a bunch of ….then, of course….then, "you lost my
money on your watch, and my son was killed during your watch. I want
you find out who did this, who killed my son and, I want my 300G back!"
Wow, what a junior high school script. The only thing I liked in that
movie is the leather coat that Bautista wore and some of the pretty
night scenes of the city. That's all.
