GO (Katie Holmes) DVD £1.00 INSTORE @ POUNDLAND

A great film and only £1.00 #INSTORE# @ POUNDLAND

Review:

Director Doug Liman's follow-up to the winning Swingers is a rollicking adventure that, while lacking in any substantial plot, speeds along with non-stop adrenaline and style to burn. Taking a cue from Pulp Fiction, Liman plays tricks with time and overlapping plots, all of which play out in L.A. and Las Vegas in a 24-hour period sometime between Christmas and New Year's. Slacker grocery-store clerk Ronna (Sarah Polley) is trying to score rent money by selling hits of Ecstasy at a rave party, but winds up inadvertently double-crossing a ruthless dealer (sexy and scary Timothy Olyphant). She's also invading the dealing turf of her coworker Simon (Desmond Askew), a Brit on his first trip to Vegas, which turns nightmarish after a jaunt with pal Marcus (Taye Diggs) to a "gentleman's club" turns violent. And then there's the two soap-opera actors (Jay Mohr and Scott Wolf) who cross paths with Ronna more than once in their attempts to divest themselves of a drug-related charge by participating in a sting. The way Liman and writer John August layer these stories owes a huge debt to Quentin Tarantino, but the comedy and action sequences rocket like a bat out of hell with energy, humour, and genuine surprise. In addition to some hilarious dialogue exchanges--including a classic scene between Ronna's stoned friend (Nathan Bexton) and a Zen cat--Liman works wonders with one the most winning ensembles in recent memory, a cast that includes both established actors and TV cuties. Mohr, Diggs, and especially Polley (doing a 180 from her turn in The Sweet Hereafter) are as excellent as you'd expect, but it's Wolf (of Party of Five) and Dawson's Creek's Katie Holmes (as Polley's best bud) who turn in revelatory work; Holmes especially seems poised to be a breakout star. An amazing cinematic ride--like a roller coaster, you'll want to go back again and again. --Mark Englehart

I sort of agree but although you and I know this is a class film others may not and a big name (:oops:) can help create more interest :thumbsup:

Great film indeed! :)

Excellent film - an for £1 it's an utter bargain. I think my copy is an R1 so might seek one of these out to play on my PS3... cheers
#5
Great price! Would buy it if I didn't already own it!

Watched it again a month or so back, it's not aged well but it's still a cracking movie :thumbsup:
#6
Great, great film. Watched it knowing nothing about it and found it really intriguing to watch.

The subtitled cat bit is great - still makes me grin.

Great film - goes for very little from Amazon sellers too, if you don't have a poundland around.
#11
For a quid ? Bargain, and Katie Holmes... Mmmmmmm !
#12
The cover art looks like some hip MTV fast & furious rip off rubbish. I watched reluctantly and discovered it is a really good film! My favourite scene has to be the cop's dinner, had a hint of Tarantino about it. Great film, Rotten Tomatoes rates it at around 90%.

I like this film was the very first movie I got on dvd around March 2000 from Woolies.

I liked the guy from Grange Hill in it who was also in Roswell and the funny guy on drugs and the dealer.
#14

Allow me to oblige. :roll: I saw this on TV a while back, and it's instantly forgettable IMHO. Not the worst film ever, but not good either. Oh, and it's got that bloke from Grange Hill in it .:lol:

I can't be the only one of this opinion as this film isn't selling well in my local Poundland. Timecop, Land Of The Dead, Hudson Hawk, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3, Last Action Hero, Eraser...etc all gone in double quick time. However, barely a single copy of this appears to have been sold in 3 weeks (either that or the staff are too damn efficient ;) ).

The deal is still hot though.

And thus balance was restored to the HUKDniverse :)
