  • Summary: TARENTINO storytelling, mirroring Pulp Fiction in every way except for originality. If you like Pulp Fiction, watching this will drive you mad as you will notice/recognize key elements brazenly ripped off. It strings together seemingly unconnnected storylines into a story. Just as Pulp Fiction, in this some of the storylines more interesting than others-certainly more humorous. Walker was good but his appearance short.

  • Summary: Director Wayne Kramer once tried to make an insanely over-the-top action movie, Running Scared (also starring Walker), which many admired for its sheer over-the-topness. But then Kramer detoured for the completely earnest (and awful) immigration drama Crossing Over, which proves a point: Kramer isn't going over the top for any honest, organic reason but rather as a cold, calculated exercise.

  • Summary: The critics hated it but I dug it. I liked the cast, the disturbing and very strange story and the character, despite being awful, terrible people, were entertaining in their own, unique way. And how often are you going to see pretty boy Paul Walker as a racist moron?

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Despite critics reviews, the movie totally makes sense. It's all about perspective. The main idea is that one cannot go out of his boundaries and what life gives him is what he deserves. The psycho-husband who wants justice all for his own benefit, ends tragically, killed by his own goal. The greedy ones, impersonated by meth-addicts, get killed by their aim having all, ignoring the consequences of their acts.
