Just saw online -- worth watching


Just watched on Amazon instant. Pretty solid entertainment; good execution, solid structure. I first remember reading about this story many months ago in Rolling Stone magazine. I can only imagine how many drafts and stops and starts a project like this must have encountered along the way. The use of voice over works well in this story -- and while it's not Goodfellas, it does a nice job of setting up the world these characters lived in. The poster makes it look like it might be a goofy comedy; but the tone is darker for sure.

Some good acting throughout -- although perhaps the Brendan Butler character (Asian guy) was a little over the top. Anyone with firsthand knowledge of the real people care to chime in?

Agreed.

I agree it's not really a comedy at all.

It is very enjoyable though.

reply

Yes. it was worth watching and no it's not a comedy.

It's sorta like 2006 Alpha Dog but less OTT Hollywood-ish.

Yeah, if you enjoy watching government propaganda.

Just watched it and I enjoyed it. Yeah, definitely a lot of flaws, but I thought JDB and Aaron Yoo did a great job.

This is my Signature.

Please enlighten us all by expanding on exactly why you believe this is government propaganda, really go ahead, I'm in the mood for some serious BS.

I watched this online on Saturday and it was a very solid movie for what it was trying to be. It was entertaining and I don't feel cheated watching it for the time I did. Would recommend this to others

Sorry I did not pay to watch it though, but that's the way of the world these days
