| Great premise, disappointing results, but Mulligan is actor to watch
The visa-scam premise of this comedy really had potential, but the execution is sloppy and low-budget, and the many over-the-top performances tend more to annoy than amuse.

The story is based on actual fact, but unfortunately the script writer chose to veer off into borderline-fantasy instead of focusing on the particulars. I'd much rather know what the Romanian gypsy mafia is really like, instead of endless clownish scenes. And we don't get a clear picture of the background of the main character Mickey Moynihan; instead there is a weird montage of garish, bloody scenes suggesting he'd been messing with some lethally dangerous criminals (but no follow-up on this.) Did not appreciate the shot of two disemboweled eyeballs in a glass, even if it looked fake!

I did like Mulligan's performance as Moynihan, a gutsy, shrewd goofball who holds together the center of this film. Now if only we can see him in a really good film!
