I had never heard of this movie, but it came as part of a two-movie package, along with "Death Game". So my question is how is this lame piece of crapola ranking a 6.3 while "Death Game" (which rules) is getting a 5.2? It's not right. Anyways, this movie isn't totally awful and I tend to grade on a curve for independent, cheapo releases like this. Clearly some effort went into the film and, in fact, there is an OK story buried in the BS, but it is diluted by several scenes that just didn't need to be in the movie which pretty much ruins what little it had going for it. If it had been whittled down to fit into the traditional 90 minutes and focused on the story instead of forcing us to watch lame alternative bands or the lead character (who could pass for Ian Curtis from Joy Division's cousin) scoring with chicks way above his pay grade, it would be a decent enough movie, although the plot gets a little hard to swallow towards the end. Almost two hours is too much and I actually had to fast forward, which is something I rarely do. Two stars for this.
