Lou Diamond Phillips
Lou Diamond Phillips was the standout in the cast, whilst delivering a bad guy rendition that flip-flopped between the Gary Oldman pimp in TRUE ROMANCE (10/10) and Samuel L. Jackson in PULP FICTION (7/10). Mind you, he did have most of the funny lines in this passable piece. Wahlberg was so-so, as was the rest of this purposely generated stereotypical cast. The soundtrack was very good, as was the style of the picture, but I guess the biggest problem was its lacklustre script (many weak attempts to correlate the idea of "bad guys doing regular things" with successful screenwriting didn't pan out). If interested in this story, I suggest you wait until it comes out on video, since nothing of great interest is worth the trip to the movie houses for this so-so adventure through the land of cinema.
