600 Miles online movie review - Takes way too long to get going. 2/10
Review: I've always been a fan of Tim Roth, because he usually puts in great performances, especially when he teams up with Tarantino but this movie was awful.
The pace is really slow throughout and there was way to many airy scenes, which had no dialogue and we're completely unnecessary. Roth, who plays federal agent, Hank Harris, is on a case to take down gun traffickers across the US to Mexico border but when he goes to arrest the young driver who is carrying the militant cargo, Arnulfo Rubio (Kristyan Ferrer), his plan is disrupted by his young friend and he ends up being kidnapped by the young driver, who is the main gun runner. As Arnulfo isn't a trained murderer, he takes him to his uncles house, who has bad intentions for Hank, which leads to a showdown which really wasn't that impressive. I won't say anymore about the plot because it will spoil it for people who haven't watched it, not that your really missing anything. The ending was also really disappointing, mainly because there wasn't much closure to the whole film but on the plus side, it's not that long and Roth and Ferrer put in decent performance. I personally was left feeling empty when the film had finished and I doubt that I would watch it again. Disappointing!
Round-Up: This is the first movie written and directed by Gabriel Ripstein, who had a decent concept but it just wasn't put together that well. Some of the camera work was pretty amateur and I would have liked to have seen the aftermath of such a dangerous situation. There is a hint of intensity throughout the movie, mainly because the main gun smugglers looked so deadly but apart from that, I did lose interest after a while.
I recommend this movie to people who are into their drama/thrillers starring Tim Roth, Kristyan Ferrer, Craig Hensley, Monica Del Carmen, Harris Kendall, Greg Lutz and Harrison Thomas. 2/10
