Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's too tasteful, if that's the word, to consistently exploit the more lurid implications of its sensationalist scenario. Which I suppose speaks well of the filmmakers as people. But not that well.
Rotten: [A] slick and well-paced if uninspired time-filler ...
Rotten: Any hard messages it means to deliver are hard to hear over the frequent sound of gunfire.
Rotten: Acts of Violence evaporates from your mind while you're watching it.

Potential... but poor directing.
A typical good vs evil plot... damsel in distress... provokes rescue attempt. Moral vs legal dynamic. All good plot elements - weakly executed. Mixture of A n B actors. More money and better direction... had the potential for solid flick. Fast forward through the BS sections and it's tolerable.
Heart and More Heart
The movie is just peak at a slice of the criminal filth/activity going on in the world today. A simple straight forward tale of three brothers and their reaction and struggle against ,circumstance. Bullets fly and real people suffer. Well done and entertaining, worth a watch and some thought.
Good job on an old and tired theme made fresh and real.
