This is a violent movie, with guns. I hate guns. I hate violence. I now have a strong resistance to watching flicks that build the plot on gratuitous violence, so I nearly left the room, after LNS’ first minutes. I am glad I endured, because it turned out interesting and intense…
The plot is about an apparent case of mistaken identity, but it twists and twists so much, until the viewer has its own doubts! This intensity remembered me of Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, and that it to say a lot because, with the exception of Pulp Fiction, no other movie brought that memory – I think that the “recent” Kill Bill trio is a pile of manure and that Tarantino should be directing Brazilian soap operas.
My rating: 7/10
