Just watched a movie called 'The Last Heist' with Henry Rollins. It's a mashup affair of bank robbery & horror, mostly done poorly. Many parts make no sense and the effects (specifically the guns) are passable at best.
I enjoyed Rollins in the film. His character should've had a different movie. He's a serial killer who believes he's doing God's work by saving souls and the way to do that? Cut out their eyes, of course (I mean, that's obvious, isn't it?)
A couple of his speeches are really twisted and fantastic. He sells it 20000%. My favorite part of Rollins is that everything he does, he brings his best. It doesn't matter if the movie's on a shoestring budget run by amateurs or his scene is 1 minute long (Bad Boys 2), he's there.
Rollins told a story about this movie how they were low on money and had 90 seconds to get a scene done before they had to leave. They managed to pull it off, but that's the kind of situation they were in.
Perhaps with more time, additional takes, the ability to perfect some of the scenes, it would've been better all around. At an hour and twenty-four minutes, you get a movie with a premise of something better...yet it can't culminate to it due to the confines of the crappy heist part.
In any event, it's on Netflix. Rollins isn't in it NEARLY enough but when he is, it's incrediable. He's worth the price of your already paid for subscription, especially if you're multitasking (I was working on comics while I watched it).
