Great aspects but NOT FOR EVERYONE

I loved this movie.

I've seen a few other Albert Pyun movies and generally think that his work helps define the low-quality end of the low-budget spectrum.

However, one thing about low-budget films is that they are unique opportunities for strong visions to emerge on the screen relatively free from studio and focus-group interference. At their best, they become a rare opportunity to see things that you won't get to see elsewhere.

This film's story is highly cliché and confusingly plotted, and along with the tight-focus, highly stylized camera-work, minimalist dialog and slow pacing winds up creating a movie that's hard to stay with.

The fact that the main character is a junkie nearing the bottom end of his addiction also discourages viewers uncomfortable with disturbing subject matter or looking for a strong, sympathetic main character.

However, however however...

If you understand that this film is not about plutonium, guns or mobsters but is about two lost souls who, in finding each other, manage to find a future where none existed then you may enjoy it as much as I did.

Burt Reynolds' character is so oddly out of place and restrainedly loopy that he comes strongly to life and accentuates the feelings of alienation and displacement in the rest of the film. (He also foreshadows his role in Striptease.) Rob Lowe is utterly compelling and heartbreakingly realistic as a junkie who knows his addiction is killing him and who has given in to feeding it instead of fighting it. His character strongly parallels Cage's alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas.

The film is so bleak, that when Crazy Six tells Milicevik's character that he won't, can't give up crack even to have a relationship with her, the honesty of his confession strikes an optimistic note. When Milicevik then decides that since he won't quit, she'll start again in order to be with him, it is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

In this desolation, the end of the movie, which is as cynical as real life about the slim chances of these two characters surviving addiction, economic hardship, parenthood, and going on to build a strong relationship, still feels uplifting and positive.

When Bad Movies Happen To Good People!

I'm actually too drained to write this review -- bad movies always do that to me -- but I feel obligated, as if it's my civic duty, to warn anyone who might be considering purchasing or viewing this god-awful mess-of-a-picture. Please, please, just take my word: this is one you'll want to stay away from. It's so boring and dull, so insipid and uninspired, such a poor excuse to assemble any familiar talent. Burt Reynolds? Wasted (despite his best efforts). Ice-T is barely in the film, and when he does appear on screen his performance is so restrained and muted that it becomes crystal clear that the director, perhaps intimidated by Ice's intense stare, didn't know what to do with him. Rob Lowe, as the title character, has never displayed so little on-screen charisma. Mario Van Peebles should be ashamed of himself; his performance is, in the saddest sense possible, a joke. Surely, Satan himself signed Mario's check for this film. The plot is as weak, half-baked and annoying as all the music involved (the utterly boring club song seems to continue on, literally, for the first third of the movie). The film's look will prompt one to seriously wonder if the Director of Photography was also forced, like one of the film's forgettable female characters, to smoke crack from a pipe duct-taped to his mouth. And if you're looking, at least, for stylized, shoot-'em-up-type violence you'll get none here. This film, I assure you, I promise you, has Absolutely no redeeming qualities! Please, I implore you, Avoid this Flick! Don't put it in and get suckered into believing that its pace will pick up, it'll get better, and evolve into a decent denouement. It won't. It don't. It can't! It sucks! Now, you have been warned, and I can now go to bed (It's 3am - please forgive any resulting errors this admonition might contain) -- knowing my conscience is clear, because I've done my civic duty for my fellow man!
