(ru) wrote: Another small gem from Boston director Andrew Bujalski, who seems to be in a small minority of contemporary filmmakers who understand how the people of this current generation interact with one another. Much can also be said about the performance of director Alex Karpovsky who plays off the textured performances by twin sisters Maggie and Tilly Hatcher. The progression of the story and the acting flow naturally which works well with this kind of storytelling. So much happens here and none of it seems forced.

This movie was one long string of stereotypes that made it very predictable. This is a movie about a bodyguard who has to protect somebody but can't do a worthwhile job of it. Like most action movies of this sort, it loses logic about 20 minutes in. The bad guys are too bad for their own good, but they look good in fancy suits and with nice weaponry. The good guys are too dumb, tough but dumb. However as in every other witness relocation/protection movie, logic is misplaced for what is supposed to be a story. The performances are bad, the story is bad and the action is also bad. However for a comedy, it's not too bad, if you want a little bit of action with your funny. With a whole bunch of useless and needless locations, scenes, action sequences and dialog as well as major plot holes, this could be one of the lost comedies that you may find interesting. The nightclub scenes are pretty interesting, walking around in ski masks in a nightclub and nobody notices. Brandishing weaponry across a dance-floor and nobody moves until gunfire is sprayed. It's the little things that can make a movie good or it's the little things that can make a movie horrible.

At the time, B movies were ruling the drive-in screens and something like this was just not commonly done. It makes for an entertaining character film that doesn't require a lot of exposition - mostly just the visuals to tell its story. And for that, I am grateful. One of my very favorite sci-fi movies and thanks must be given to Criterion for their wonderful Blu-ray presentation of this classic film.
