Anyone else view this little gem? Takes a bit to get moving, but when it does, WHAM it gets moving. I figured out about 60% midway through, but couldn't piece it all together until the end. Very good writing, and acting. Ben Kingsley was a bit of a fish out of water as the "Rabbi" mobster, but if you can look past his bald head and headpiece, you will be fine.

It is in a sort of "Momento" style, although different. No loss of memory, more like "Lost" flashbacks to help flesh out the storyline.

I just saw this movie the other night for the first time. Excellent movie! What do you mean, it takes a bit to get moving? I lost count of the number of people who died before the opening credits finished. I thought it was masterfully paced. It also had that same careless swagger that movies like "The Big Hit" and "3 Kings" had.

And what a cast! Was there anyone in that movie that wasn't a heavy hitter? I even liked Lucy Liu's acting (didn't like her in Charlie's Angels).

Seeing people die doesn't indicate that a movie is "moving". Yes there was plenty of action in the beginning, but the story around the killing took a bit to make sense. That was the point that I was trying to make.

Either way it was a great film and I would encourage people to watch it.

But every single one of the 50 copies at Blockbuster were out, out, out... Thanks for the recommendation however and I'll look for it soon...

...the story...took a bit to make sense. That was the point that I was trying to make. I agree with that, and I agree that that was a good aspect of the movie, but me personally I enjoyed the pacing, which is what it sounded like you were criticizing. I thought it was plenty fast-moving from beginning to end (although, it was no Cellular).

i watched it just a little while ago, it was pretty amusing actually, a bit confusing in the beginning, but not too hard, really well done movie.

Didn't really engage me. I figured out the plot way, way to early. And I never really cared about the main characters. I liked Wills the best as he did a decent "Clint Eastwood" impression, but I fell asleep on this thing TWICE.
