4.0 out of 5 stars Goes a Long Way July 11 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a good example of how someone can take a tiny budget, a fun idea, a skeletal story and a cast/crew of unknowns and whip together something fun and exciting. It's better than a lot of other action movies out there (although there are no typical ugly special affects, e.g., pyrotechnics, bullets bursting through bodies, etc.) The banter between the protagonists is a mixture of Quentin Tarrentino meets caffienated salesmen.
I don't know any of the cast, but most of them have lots of charisma.
Some may grouse that this movie was too self-conciously indie, too derivative of Resevoir Dogs or is just an ambitious person's calling card - but in my mind, it puts a lot of big movies to shame. It's certainly better than anything that goes direct to video.
If you wanted to improve this movie (remember, we're dealing with newbies here), the FBI personnel were used to tell the story. Their role as the storytellers was a little wooden, too obvious and not all that necessary - so I would trim their parts down.

I was expecting bigger and better things from writer and director Joe Carnahan because he did infact write and direct NARC! Carnahan plays the mouthy, bad talking, macho Sid French and that other guy plays his partner. A lot of bad acting equals to miscasting. The black cop was annoying. The funniest guy was Vernon who was saying his guy friend had sexual relations with Johnny Cash. A tour-de-force of bad camera work mixed with bad editing and a wooden and stilled supporting cast. I think this tries to echoe into the realm of Quentin Tarantino but it never goes anywhere. A total waste of my time

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky,innovative,fun,and creative! Aug. 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film at Sundance and appreciated it even more after hearing how it was created - on a shoe string (under $4K), with friends and family pitching in, and using "borrowed" props. The power is in the dialog, and the quirky story and characters. It's fun and I can't wait to see what's going to come next for Joe Carnahan (writer, director, actor, etc.).

5.0 out of 5 stars Butter Baby! Feb. 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I see this movie listed as one of the best of indie-film for'99. I never heard of it, so I track it down, watch it and amsummarily blown away. Top-notch acting and directing (especially good is G-man Ken Rudulph and harried lemon-lot hustler Dan Leis as Bob) Strong recommendations from somebody who sees a lot of bad videos, this one is a rare bird, and great! END

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the Best Movie of the Year!!! Sept. 13 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film at my local movie house. I must say it is one of the best films I've seen. The actors, the photography, and the high speed pace was unbelievable. And who can forget the "Man in Black", actor Michael Saumure, he was amazing. I can't wait to see what he does next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great rental! Sept. 29 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Rented this film the other night and was duly impressed! This film looks like it was made for about 5 bucks, but it really packs a punch! Great dialogue and acting and the story knocked me out. I can't believe this film hasn't gotten more notice.
