What just happened?
In a plot that doesn't make sense, using the standard jumping from the present to the past to explain, and using music that gives the movie an edge, the viewer is left wondering why they just wasted an hour and twenty minutes of their life and, more importantly, why Danny Glover accepted this this role. The movie is rife with "build-ups" that lead to nothing, relationships that lead nowhere, and confusion galore. But the most confusion thing about the whole movie, like chalked up to "artistic freedom", is when two people have a conversation. Typically, one is talking in Italian while one is talking in English, with no translators. Why don't you just talk in one language? Clearly you understand both languages. Did the director just have a friend who did subtitles for movies that needed a job? About the only good thing about the movie is the fairly realistic gun firing.
