REVIEWS

Review by Mark Flemming (posted on 1-Jun-2007)

WOW...what a surprise! This film was the best thing I have seen in several years. Nick K. is a great director/writer and the movie never stops moving. What is really great about this movie however is the suprisingly great acting. If someone told me to go see a movie with Justin Timberlake, the kid from the girl next door movie, Bruce Willis, Gretzky's wife, and the Clair's old boyfriend from Six Feet Under I would have told them they were crazy. All of the cast was perfect for the material. See it and you will not be dissappointed. Can't wait for "God is a Bullet"!
