Eric Roberts is truly excellent as a loser turned hitman, Joaquim de Almeida is vicious as the scumbag bad guy. This gem of a movie deserves your attention! There are so many little moments during the film that we can all identify with...
Watch out: the DVD comes only in standard format (why do they do that! )
Roberts plays a down on his luck alcoholic American would-be writer, stuck in a dirt-poor Mexican town. When given the chance of making some quick money to "do a favor" for the local crime boss, his life begins a wild downwards spiral.
Despite the subject matter, this film is far from depressing - it's more like a black comedy film noir. Too bad no one ever saw it, otherwise Roberts would be back making Oscar-caliber films instead of toiling in B movies and in sitcoms. The entire cast is teriffic, and the director does a stellar job on a miniscule budget. Buy this film and enjoy it, and tell someone else about it. It's that good!

This was a completely underrated movie and in my opinion should be commercial as opposed to some of the crap out there now!Published on July 3, 2012 by J
I was disappointed by the movie: The plot was lethargic and implausible and the acting by Roberts was so-so. Read morePublished on May 8, 2004 by M. Schreuder
