Let's break this film into 3 scenes: the intro and robbery – good. The ending – good. The wordy bit in the middle – awful.
There is a reasonable (not brilliant) story in there and the cast make a good fist of that but the overly emotional scenes which bind the story together just don't work. That the score is overpowering doesn't help.
But this film could have been so much better if it was tightened up. There are some decent jazz rhythms humming away in the background which could have been worked on and the dramatisation I refer to in the middle could also have been better arranged.
On the plus side, the seedy setting suits the film and I appreciate the straightforward action – no need for choreographed martial arts when a few decent punches (carefully played in the background) do the job.
I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this film again but...if you have 90 minutes to kill it is worth persevering with.
