Here's a movie for hardcore Mark Wahlberg fans, folks who are into alpha males with gorilla tendencies, who think a sentence must begin with an F-bomb, and don't mind suspending with globs of disbelief.
Gritty, dark and ugly, the cinematography has a certain interest and appeal. Hey, this is the world our bad-turned-good-turned-bad guy hangs in.
So why does the movie slut call this film a work of art?
You'll have to watch the flick clear to the end for this colorful surprise. (Hint. Hint.) This, plus the rousing end-credit music, makes it worthwhile for soft-core Wahlberg fans to see this flick.
