This is an odd bi-polar sort of film. It starts out as a piece on some bank robbers who kidnap a family and drive to Mexico. That is the first half of the film. Then when they get to this bar in Mexico there is a huge twist which I dare not ruin for those who haven't seen it but let's just say something isn't quite right with the patrons. The confrontation is a bloody action packed jubilee, it just seems sudden and well unlikely but I suppose it doesn't really matter. I actually had a lot of fun watching this, but let's be honest it's not exactly a work of art. Just a bloody action film with a kick ass twist that most Tarantino fans should eat right up!
