Movie Description Misleading, Other Problems...


"Restitution" is described as taking place "in a small town". How is the city of Detroit a "smalltown"? That's just one of the many misleading things about this very mediocre movie.

The story is confusing. Something about drugs and...stuff going on. Blonde chick falls for a guy who first looks like a bearded, long-haired 70's throwback and then like a geek accountant on steroids. I couldn't buy it.

At the end the geek-on-steriods is suddenly a kung-fu expert, fighting and killing six or seven armed men and not once getting scratched by a bullet. Strangely, I was reminded of the old "Billy Jack" movie when the geek-on-steroids turns into Karate Man!

This movie had no originality and the actor simply is not credible. He lacks the good looks to be a leading man but that would have been acceptable if he could act worth a damn. He can't. How a guy like him could entice a good-looking blonde to get naked with him also defies believability.

OMG LMAO !!!!!!!!!!!!!

SERIOUSLY I AM TRULY L O L RIGHT NOW READING YOUR POST LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

omg that is all so true. BILLY JACK rotflmfao ...without a scratch! lol (and i thought i was the only one who remembered billy jack!) :)


you know what, i just decided something. and you helped me make this decision.

it just dawned on me that this one deserves to go on MY DRUNK MOVIE LIST


they don't come along very often. quite rare, actually. only 9 titles in 12 years because i am very selective. i don't take lightly adding a title. a movie has to REALLY deserve it. lol ...and this one really really does. i mean, it is sucking so bad it could pull a golf ball through a water hose. (4/5 inch, not 3/4 lol)

that list is for movies that are so bad they are fun to get wired and laugh at. the funniest thing about them is how they try to be a SERIOUS film but just can't pull it off. that incongruence is what makes it funny.

okay yeah, i am adding this one to the list. you can check it out here if you want to http://www.imdb.com/list/goiH7S0dy7I/

You should add The Room to your list. It is a must

Shadow Of Fear is another good one of this nature.

It really does assume WAY too much of itself. It's just laughable.

I was also lured in by the description, and that Mena Suvari, one of my favorite beauties, was in it. She didn't disappoint, but the rest of this movie was worse than PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. I watched the ending credits to see who was responsible for this wreck, and I knew the reason as soon as I saw that the
lead actor was also the writer and producer. Something he wrote for himself to star in. LOL! He should've stayed behind the desk, because he didn't have the physique or the moves to pull off the role he was trying to play. One of the reasons why I couldn't believe Pierce Brosnan in the role of James Bond. And at the ending, when Mark's revealing who he is to Mena, and we flash-back to the scene where he changes his long, full-haired look to his natural look of semi-balding writer, made me laugh the most at the absurdity of this movie.
This movie is so bad that this is first time I've ever given a movie a 1 rating!
