    I was expecting a total cheesefest in the lines of John Woo's Bullet in the Head, but instead I got a gritty, sweeping and fairly smart periodic drama. Only in the end it gives in to the cheese.

    I am not normally into the whole "friendship is forever"-wash but this is such a top-notch production and the acting is so tremendous that in the end I was relatively satisfied.
    However, I can't help but to feel that something is missing. One might say that the sometimes overly romantic male-bonding is the substance of the film, but I wanted more meat around the bones, especially when the generic basis of the movie is taken into consideration.
