Not terrible..
27 February 2013 | by witster18See all my reviews

I kinda knew what to expect before I hit play. Straight to video. Christian Slater. A title like "Guns, Girls, and Gambling". But, I like Slater, and I also like girls and gambling, so I thought, what the hay.

G3 is, well, Tarantino-light. All the style and fun storytelling, all the fun characters, only the script is pretty bad. The story is fine, but the lines are borderline terrible.

Now, G3 doesn't take itself seriously, which does lighten the mood just enough to get through it. Slater is as good as he can be, and the cast is chock-full of surprising cameo's. This Winnick guy must know a lot of people in Hollywood, but unfortunately, none of them are writers.

The twists in the storyline are nice, and it was nice to see Slater dawn the Elvis sunglasses again. The film does have some comedic moments, and the second-half of the feature is better than the first.

The films' chronological time-jumping is it's best asset. In that way, the film is actually put together quite well, and works, but the writing completely undermines the entire effort.

Falls in the bottom half of the last 100 films that I've viewed, but I didn't feel like I completely wasted my $1.31 at the redbox. I'll be sure to get it back today though.

You MIGHT like this if you liked:Smokin Aces(better), The Big Lebowski(much better), Hit and Run(better), Jonah Hex(slightly better), Operation Endgame(worse), Bunraku(worse).
