Mean to watch this earlier this week, but better late than never?

Anyway, I can't lie - I was pretty underwhelmed by it. It was fine - but it felt more like a run-of-the-mill film noir b-movie to me than anything else. The visuals were fine. The story was fine, but not all that compelling. I didn't feel the tension or intrigue or mystery from it. Not that it was bad - just "meh." The last 15 minutes or so made it a bit more interesting, but even that felt like more of a side plot than anything else.

I was expecting more from the movie as well. My takeaway is that Schnapps gives you wings. 6/10

The makers of Red Bull must have watched this one...
