I gotta say; I really enjoyed this.
12 October 2014 | by topsfrombottomSee all my reviews

I just don't get the mediocre ratings I'm seeing for this one. I thought it was a perfect action-comedy - right up there with 'The (original) Hangover', 'Horrible Bosses' and the like.

Here's how it hit me..

Story: Tight, to-the-point, succinct and actually, pretty plausible. Pace: Fast from the first few seconds, then damn-near unrelenting. Stunts, Effects, Makeup & Camera-Work: Top-shelf. Characters: Believable and uncomplicated by too much 'back story'. Acting: Each-n-EVERY actor in this film displayed their awesomeness. Predictability: You NEVER knew what was coming next. LOTS of surprises. Oh - and nice ending, too.

Viewer discretion: This is definitely a film for grown-ups. LOTS of drug use and some mild nudity.

My head's still spinning down. What a fun flick. Not familiar with much of the director's work, but this was cool.
