All these characters are passing through life just waiting for death to take them. The lead character is the only actor that was lucky enough to die by the end of the movie.
This movie goes nowhere, has no message and is guarenteed to depress you even if you are otherwise in a great mood before watching it.
This movie seems far longer than it really is and should not have been longer than ten minutes in any event. It simply was the very long way of telling a very short story. There is only one gunshot during the movie. For the sake of these actors, there should have been many more.
Street low-life meets drug king who caters mostly to drug addicted hookers. He fails to follow every order explicity and is shot to death, fortunately. Death is far better than continuing his miserable and meaningless life, which had absolutely no place to go.
Terrible screenwriting. Not one character has any point or purpose, not one is slightly likeable and nothing of value can be taken away from this pathetic excuse of a movie.
Sorry, just trying to save anyone else from spending money or waisting anytime on this garbage. One would struggle through the movie thinking it had to get better. Problem is, it never does.
Good actors wasted their time and talents on this disaster of a film.
I could only wonder why the actors accepted roles in this disaster.
I'm only happy that I did not see this awful movie in the theater or I would have been very upset over a ruined evening. I would have walked out in the middle of the movie, upset.
I watched the BluRay again later and discovered I was correct the first time.
However, I should have quit the first watch five or ten minutes into the movie, since it never got any better, and I never should have tried to watch it a 2nd time. First impression was correct.
This DVD went into the trash as I'd be far too embarrased to give it to anyone.
