The lives of a nightclub owner, a crime boss, a stripper, a bartender, two hit men, a prostitute and a psychic take a turn for the worse when they are trapped in an escaped mental patient's sinister path of madness and destruction.
Before watching this movie I knew nothing really about it. Having watched it, it's hard to describe what kind of film it really is. The best I can come up with is it's got elements of Pulp Fictions interlocking stories and John Cusack's film "identity" mixed into one very stylish looking but to me confusing film.
The one part of the story revolves around a mob boss looking for his psychotic daughter who has just escaped from a mental institution. He gets two of his men to search the streets for her. The other part revolves around a strip club named "toxic" and the bar tender Sid.
To me to make interlocking stories that work, both of them have to be interesting to watch. The story concentrating on looking for the mob bosses daughter moved along nicely with great performances all round especially from Danny Trejo. While on the other hand the Toxic strip bar storyline line moved along so slowly, I would have lost interest if it had not been for the consent switching between the two stories.
I now come to the twist ending and I have to say while I got the basic idea, a lot of things just didn't fit right. When you do an ending like this film has, I like the film to make total sense. Not one that leaves you questioning characters actions.
Anyway this might be one of those films you might have to watch a couple of times to really get it! :fun:
