Low budget? Very. Random, unrelated disco musak library music? Check. Over simplified narrative? A child could write better.. And yet .. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, its' familiar genre and yet very unfamiliar setting. It is made with charm and some economic finesse (see car chase and opening credits) Loved the two villains and the fact that this film was made at all (and then curated) Bravo to all involved!
Yeah, it's a bad movie. But it's a "good" bad movie. A "B-Movie" - sometimes called a "Z-Movie" from South Africa. Made "underground" during Apartheid for the masses, these films were thrown away and then rediscovered and released. Not an original story, but it's interesting seeing the film knowing the historical context in which it was made. I applaud the effort of these actors and filmmakers and enjoyed this flick.
Imagine a porn studio was in charge of making a heist movie for $3,000? I really enjoyed watching this because it's something that I would never watch normally. You can tell this was not made for avid movie watchers since the characters explain everything they are thinking about. This has a cultural anthropology aspect to it and you should watch it. Heck, I think you'll have a good time.
