I went in knowing the director did Scott Pilgrim and that it was an 'untraditional heist film'. It met my expectations. This is one of those 'good man driven to bad situations' plots that I love, complete with brief glimpses of what could be if only he could escape his bonds. For pretty much the entire second half of the film, Baby is in peril, and the directing keeps that afloat. I got caught up in the characters, and I properly hated the bad guy. Props, btw, to Kevin Spacey for showing up to work in this project. I was really worried they were going to fuck up the ending, but I was very satisfied with what I got.
I found it very hard to keep my car under the speed limit as I drove home. IT DID NOT HELP that THIS is what came up on the iPod when I started it up.
