Some days, the knight in rusty armor's a CIA and Mossad trained Iraqi Kurdish assassin in exile called Guido, whose quest is saving the defenseless. And making me laugh while he's so damned bizzy in absolutely believable hand-to-hand fights with bricks, guns, knives, hymnals, sacred candlelabra, and pantyhose.

Let me say up front, after getting cheap takeout sushi, I wasn't expecting much from GUIDO, considering the actors I knew in this film, who are no longer, well, leading men, but after aging out of their prime roles a decade or two ago, are now rarely seen character actors perhaps known best for certain over-the-top performances. But...in black comedies, over the top, that's mostly OK. Which is why someone else mentioned it's campy.Maybe it was all the director's craft this time around. Somehow, it worked, and I was laughing at Guido, with Guido, and in the face of certain nasty Death. But believing every scene.

So like the first hit of Wasabi, I was surprised. Now I'm thinking GUIDO's my new favorite cult gangster film. Even though it's a black comedy, it is based on an all-too-true crime scenario that recently grabbed world headlines, with a 91-person bust in L.A. just the week before I watched this film! Plenty dead bodies, and it sure looked like they all deserved it.

While another review points out how low-budget GUIDO is no flashy BOURNE LEGACY, I say the acting is high up there on the believability scale. Particularly Guido and The Mexican-American Florist Lady, and top cop Armand Assante. Villain Billy Zane is always ironic, so his bits with campy knuckle knocks and maybe an eyerolling instance or two seemed typical quirks of his character's minor gangsterness.

The production quality is no Bourne series, but Guido has heart along with a few moments I found myself asking "how did THAT not get reshot?"

It looks like the movie was probably a fun movie to make. It delivers: decent action; self-less tongue-in-cheek; and acting far superior to mine. Ok, I don't act but I do get easily distracted by bad acting and there were only few instances that I even paid attention to the acting; the rest of the time I sat back and watched a three star movie make my four star list.

In short: if you are looking for eyegasms put this on your 'watch later' list. If you want something where you can feel good about giving overlooking a few flaws in return for a fun story with soul watch Guido.

(Spoilers) This film is three years old. Its lead actor, Alki David is also the writer of the screenplay. David is a Nigerian-born Greek from a billionaire family, which means he can do and have pretty much whatever he wants. He was educated in Great Britain and also did a stint in the military there. Moving to LA, he is an entrepreneur with his hands in a hundred pies. He has a few films to his credit. I give this background to explain why this screenplay is so bizarre and not your usual formula. Its basically your road/chase film with a displaced Iraqi ex-soldier/hitman running across country with an Eastern block mob, various mafias and the cops all on his tail. He has lost his entire family in war and has basically turned to killing. The weak premise concerns his Mexican landlady (who is terminally ill) trying to convince him to become a good person. There's not much here. The tortures and killings are graphic to convince us we're dealing with really 'bad' people, but the storyline is weak. Not much to say...men will probably like it...not so much for women.

Guido works for a boss who has rules of no drugs or prostitutes which is the kick-off for the plot when they get tangled up with Armenians who traffic in girls and everybody is trying to get a bigger piece of the pie. The real story is the relationship that develops between Guido and his landlady as they travel cross country.
Reasonably good acting from most of the actors and some fun bits. I agree that there are a few fight scenes that should of been reshot, due to them appearing no more lethal than a WWW fight.

If you have Amazon Prime, go ahead and give it a watch. You've got nothing to lose.

(please don't talk about losing hours of your life watching movies, you know you've done much less with more time)

Despite all the blood (and it is very bloody) this movie is actually a good story. There is actual character development throughout the movie. There is an actual story to tell not just an excuse for killing many people. It follows the convention of the hero's journey and shows why this oldest of stories is still worth telling.

From Guido’s job using his talents as one of the number one agents in the Arab conflict, now living in the US doing the usual jobs ex-agents find, and then along comes this Road Trip. Well worth the time on this – real scenes, real people.

, I started watching this movie because the trailer looked good.About halfway through I paused for a snack and checked the reviews.Two out of five gave it one star. I'm glad I didn't read them first. I like it. Lot's of good old action. I love the Guido character. I'm entertained. Isn't that what you watch movies for? It's not big budget but most of the actor's were great.Worth watching.
