I understand your thoughts Bernie.
There´s lots of cool things happening during the last 10 minutes
so you get the feeling "was that it, i want more!"

But this is a movie you have to watch multiple times to really appreciate.
Next time enjoy that laid back feeling, cool soundtrack and those awesome characters.

I´m so glad that there is no sequel to this movie
because i like the mystery
and one can only imagine what will happen next.

I'll check it out again no doubt. I think I mainly watched it because people on here were goin on about the fight scene between George an Frank. That was pretty good.

I just thought that this film had a truely fantastic premise but failed to deliver on what could have been something truely fantastic. Not trying to knock it all I am saying is that it had the potential to be great.

I wonder if Roddy Piper served as any form of inspiration for Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler cos he did end up looking a fair bit like him in that movie.
