Hmm, after hearing how great it was I was pretty disapointed after seeing it. It just didn't bring about those feelings you get, where you think to yourself "wow, that was f'ing awsome", nor did I feel particularly moved in any way. And because of that "I" would not by it. However its got great style and excellent acting, and the story is quite amazing so check it out. It was good, but only 4/5 good.

Hell yeah! Loved the film. Just bummed about the price, $20 seems to be the norm.

I highly recommend it as a blind buy. I bought it blind myself this past Tuesday (no theater near me played it, which is unfortunately an all too common occurrance) and I was not disappointed at all. It is easily one of my favorite films of the last few years and I already want to watch it again.

I bought it blind and I don't regret it. The only problem I really had with it was the camera tricks that went on I felt distracted a bit from the film. They seemed to be not needed, atleast in my opinion. I recommend it, although the almost $22 price I paid perhaps is a little steep.

I thought it was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, the film was a mix of Tarantino and Scarface, maybe some Boyz in the Hood thrown in.
