Here's a movie that won't end up on the Lifetime cable network. First-time director/star Carnahan cobbled together this indie on a miniscule $7,300 budget. While that's a heroic feat in itself, it's no excuse for the mind-numbing dialogue and dopey plot, which centers around a '63 Pontiac LeMans, $250,000 and enough artillery for a small army. Carnahan's influences are Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, both of whom made great indie films on shoestring budgets, but the characters here are awfully unappealing, and there's little reason to hang around for the film's conclusion.
Instead of throwing so many characters into the mix, better to develop the few interesting ones.
