Yeah, I think it's kind of goofy, but I guess the difference between us is that it doesn't bother me. The part that struck me was him saying how well-paid they were, despite the fact that, y'know, it's literally simpler work than what your average throwaway mob enforcer does. Still, I'm not looking for some life shattering metaphysical experience with a film like this, and in terms of pure action I thought it looked absolutely fantastic. Like, the directing and cinematography seemed superb.

I saw it as a metaphor for trying to break into the film industry when you're at most going to command a half a million dollar budget.
