Fantastic film making!By Chocky from Northampton , 16 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]A great low budget film from director Josh Becker (Evil Dead, Xena). The film is a "real time" heist movie shot in black and white and using very long takes.
The long takes recall Hitchcok's "Rope" but here the edits are more cleverly hidden. The effect of the takes is one of building tension which serves the film really well.
Bruce Campbell is great as the charismatic lead and the story is well scripted, funny and ultimately... well better not give the story away!
The heist aspect is reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs and Killing Zoe and the camera work makes it feel like Goddard's Breathless as it follows the actors in an almost documentary style.
Running Time really shows what can be done with limited budget and time restrictions and is a testament to low budget film making. Excellent!
King of ThievesBy clare16 (2 reviews) from England , 09 Feb 2012I wanted to see Bruce Campbell act outside of the Evil Dead movies and this turned out to be a great choice. I really enjoyed the style of filming and the ending of the film was unexpected which i loved. A must see for Bruce fans.
Intriguing exercise. Disappointing exection.By JDK (16 reviews) from Cricklewood , 16 Jan 2010Ok, I admit it. I'm a huge Bruce Campbell fan. His involvement alone is usually enough to get me to watch a movie.
Running Time has a couple of great points: Bruce Campbell, shot in real time, black and white, crime thriller, long takes that make it feel like one long piece of work.
It also has some very bad points: Filled with plot contrivances, idiot plot flaws, dodgy acting, some ropy camera angles, amateur-dramatics-level dialogue, etc.
On the whole, a great concept, with a couple of nice touches, that was ultimately disappointing. I respect the idea, and what it attempted to deliver. I admire the good points, but there's no way I could force myself to watch it again. Sorry, Bruce.
How Films Should Be MadeBy divoff (22 reviews) from Worksop , 09 Oct 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThis is how films should be made one continuous take (it had a few takes but you can not tell) Also it leaves a lot to yourself if people die or not as you do not see anyone die only shot or having an heart attack.
