One of the problems with making a living out of crime is that if one makes a mistake one goes to jail – or gets killed.

This is a movie filled with violence, perhaps not entirely unnecessary to the story line, but it left me feeling somewhat angry at life in general, an unsettling feeling.   The story is good, the direction and acting excellent.  The movie is worth seeing if one likes the genre and doesn’t mind the violence.
