Technical Specs


Anachronisms: The whole movie looks to take place the middle of winter, not spring or fall. Yet when mob boss Biggs is talking to Tony (not credited) while they are drowning the Russian, they talked about the game and balls and strikes. While it can get cold at the beginning of baseball season and the end, the movie was obviously set in dead winter, when no baseball is being played.

User Review

Poor script, poor acting, Willis appears for less than 10 min

Rating: 4/10

The movie was a waste of time and i am really disappointed. I could describe this movie as a "wanna be movie"...the director wants to be Guy Ritchie but he is not...50 cent wants to be an actor but he is not, Ryan Phillipe wants to be a bad guy but he is not, because of his baby face...when you see Bruce Willis on the cover you expect him to be actually present in the movie but he is not...everything in this project is poor...i really gave it a chance and watched all 90 min but it was a waste of time. The act was too slow, it tried to build up characters but it failed...many things were simply not there as script and acting. I had hard time understanding the words of 50 cent, Ryan Phillipe was OK but this character was simply not for him...he matches other roles much better...Bruce Willis was OK too but he had a very small and insignificant role.
