I thought the movie could have gone for at least half an hour longer and delved alot deeper into the story. I enjoyed it, but at the end, I was thinking, is that it?
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.
