Alpha,He was totally crepey. And he was such a jerk. He seriously dug a big hole for himself when he verbally undercut that poor Japanese woman. It was totally uncalled for. He kept doing boneheaded things even after that. I had zero sympathy for him; I kept wanting to see him get hit by a bus or something (the character, not the actor!).Man, I actually read your review before seeing this movie, but I totally blanked on the fact that these movies had the same actors in it! My bad! I think it was my first time actually seeing Lynn Chen on screen. She was amazing! And Kyson the Heroes character Ando was good, but this role showed how much ability he really has. I guess this is how stars are created they show such a breakout performance that people remember them. After seeing them here, I don't think I'll forgot them next time!Actually, when I read your review, I was wondering how I might rent it. Your review convinced me that it was good enough to see but not worth buying. My money went to White on Rice largely because it was so easy to order. Seriously, more of these indies should take advantage of YouTube's rental setup (as Children of Invention did) or On Demand. People like me who live in non-diverse places and who don't have Netflix won't get to see it otherwise.
