2.0 out of 5 stars mediocre movie February 21, 2008
Format:DVD
It's a story about a small time thief being fingered by the crooked cop who arranged the deal. He does the time and keeps his mouth shut. When he gets out, he ends up in LA to take care of business. Whoops, he has trusted the wrong people in his plans for revenge. I kept watching this movie hoping it would get better, it never did. As another reviewer already noted, the best bits were Val Kilmer on screen. Okay, so five minutes were great and rest was just there. For a caper movie, it had no real edge of your seat moments. With all the great actors (Gabriel Byrne, Patrick Bergin, etc.), I was expecting a great film but it never delivered. I recommend watching Circus or The Criminal for a great UK caper flick, not this one. Avoid it at all costs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good actors in an awful movie January 31, 2009
By Eddie
Format:DVD
The cast is quite good, and includes Gabriel Byrne, Vinnie Jones (Snatch), Anthony LaPaglia, Val Kilmer, Patsy Kensit, Bruno Kirby, and others, but even they can't save a movie that is poorly written and directed.
It felt quite formulaic, and is not in the same league as films like Snatch, Heist, Usual Suspects, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, etc.
Fortunately I saw it on TV and didn't spend any money on it. It wasn't so bad that I turned it off, but it's far from being a good movie. I finished watching since I did like some of the actors (if not always the acting).
The movie felt like a school project that could have been polished into a decent film.
Some movies are meant to be watched again and again (e.g., The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, The Usual Suspects, etc.). In the case of Played, once is more than enough. 2-stars is a generous rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why you never let the rich guy star in a movie... April 26, 2011
By MadMacs
Format:DVD
The question isn't why don't you review this film.

The real questions are: Who the bleep is Mick Rossi? And how the bleep did he ending starring in four films? Because he absolutely sucks bollocks as a lead actor.

I'll tell you why.

My guess, and based on two suckfest flicks I've screened, because he paid for them.

Seriously. If you look at his IMDb Profile and/or do any kind of net search - you come up with nada.

I've met self-aborbed fools like this before. Too rich and too conceited to ever believe anything but their version of the truth, like: You're too old. You're not particularly memorable looking. And oh yeah, you can't act for bleep.

My own particular brand of pretentious braggart experience was a Wall Street guy who was convinced he knew how to run a club/restaurant which folded in less than 8 months - and only because he poured money into it the last six before realizing it died two weeks after the opening.

Does that stop them? Nope.

Now, typically these poseurs tend to serve their narcissism by being the "executive producer" - which allows them entré into Hollywood and the beautiful people; and where he gets to shine his knob on some wannabe actresses. That would be typical.

But oh no, not Mr. Mick Rossi. No, he has to *star* in his movies. (cue The Gloria Swanson's closeup in 'Sunset Boulevard')

This is why you never ever let the rich do anything 'cept pay for the damn film. Let them hang out with some babes, give them a posh seat with their name stenciled on the back, and let them lounge in a comfy trailer. But never ever let them talk you into starring in a film - not ever - for any amount of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the fence January 19, 2008
Format:DVD
I wanted to like this one. Great cast. Love UK gangster flicks. Intrigued by the improv/lack of script but, ultimately was not moved by Mick Rossi. The big names are good but the story fizzles a bit. Still, it's an experiment worthy of watching for students of film.

most of the shooting was done with different kinds of camera, and all sorts of style, not coherent is the main thing u feel about this film, with a great story that could have been done very well. it's a pity that it was on such a low budget and no experts were on the production team to correct all the screenplay. still worth seeing but at times you would press the fast forward a bit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Played, indeed! September 26, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Terrible film! A total waste of time. Should have heeded the reviewers. But was "conned" thinking it could not possibly be that awful with Gabriel Byrne, Val Kilmer & Anthony La Paglia! Well, they "starred" for perhaps a total of 10 minutes adding nothing to the story just an "appearance" to solely get us poor suckers to watch the pathetically awful main cartoonish character who never seemed absent from the screen like an irritating fly..all I wanted to do was swat him off! Played, indeed, that we were.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just because it's an indie . . . January 10, 2010
Format:DVD
Independent productions don't get a pass just because they come in at ridiculously low budgets and actually make it to the screen, theatrical or otherwise. The script was interesting, but it has been done before. Actors need tu be engaged with their roles and the other actors in their scenes. Saying a performance is understated does not excuse being somewhere else. While the ending was unexpected, it still seemed a bit contrived. Frankly, the most interesting part appears in the behind-the-scenes narrative with Mick Rossi. Apparently, in the scene where his character is being driven to find medical attention by Val Kilmer's character, Kilmer neglected to turn off his cell phone. When it rang during the scene, the character found himself talking to his mother, to whom he had to explain why he was unable talk. In and of itself, this was actually a fairly humorous monologue. Of course, it became all the funnier when Rossi explained that the caller was, in fact, Kilmer's mother. He decided to leave the scene as it was filmed.
