Fantastic movie. I’ve heard others complain a bit about the stilted dialogue, but I didn’t mind it. The story is a series of small morality plays in a gritty dirty setting, between archetypeal good and bad characters. With that sort of simple backdrop, you expect the characters to speak in terse sentences and menacing undertones. The visuals and fx were fantastic — some really interesting camera work — and I’m a sucker for b&w.
All the artsy stuff aside, it’s just plain entertaining from an over-the-top violence point of view (a la Kill Bill), along with plenty of flesh-flavoured eye-candy.
Go see it.
