Female HEAT

Reviewer: malyyyyyDate: 2019-01-08

Can see many elements of film HEAT in this. The Dead tech house at the start. Taxi Driver style shots from car. and Pulp Fiction to degree with shades of Samuel L Jackson. 9 or so very good performances. complex plot. Someone gets robbed!

Walked out after 1 hour, Disliked the characters completely as they were defined only be greed and anger. unnecessary glorification of violence.

Fantastic movie

Absolutely brilliant :)

Do not waste 130 minutes of your life that you will never get back. I gave it 45 minutes before I had to leave, with no urge to even care what happens in this borefest of nothingness.
