Not the greatest...

I was looking forward to this movie when it came out, so I bought it and wish I had rented it first. Although the twist was good, the film was actually really boring. The action starts towards the end but it was also a bit confusing. I love Steve Zahn and I'm used to his funny characters but he was pretty serious in this flick. The violence is heavy - lots of shootings and stabbings with some gore. Sexual content includes mainly discussions but also scenes of partial nudity. Strong language. There is some drug use of pot and one character refuses it, also a scene of meth use (graphic). Not for kids! Okay for ages 16 and up!!
