Storyline

Malcom's done with his life. Only the noise of Crystal Meth gives him a reason to keep going - everything else it has long regardless. Equipped with a bag full of weapons and self-made bombs, he makes his way to the nearby mall to really stir things up. On his personal war campaign, he not only changes his life radically, but also the fate of other people who are in the wrong place at the same time: a teenager whose favorite pastime is smoking pot in his dreary existence, a housewife, where their best days have been left behind, a greedy businessman whose only desire is to increase his wealth and a depressed pervert.

Mal's Mother: Malcolm, want your dinner now? I made fish sticks with mashed potatoes and string beans, okay? Did you hear me? Well, if you're not gonna tell me what you want, I'm gonna make your decisions for you,and you get what you get. Christ, the older you are, the more you remind me of your father. You hear that, Mal?
Mal's Mother: [seeing him aiming at her from the hallway] What is that thing?
Mal: [shoots her]

Stylish and talented, though not fulfilled
15 November 2014 | by OJTSee all my reviews

The first part of this film hooks you on. Stylish and well photographed, and able to keep you interested. But that doesn't go all the way. The film loses it's way due to some very disillusioned and sick people inhabiting the mall.

A disillusioned young man living at home in his mothers trailer goes on a hateful rampage on a mall. At the mall we find several persons doing their everyday thing, as the observant college student Jeff which really is smart, but still wasting his life on the mall, not caring enough not if he should take an Ecstasy pill or not. More shouldn't be told before you watch it.

Because I think it's worth seeing. There are some very talented stuff here, though there are scenes pulling down the great stuff built up in the start. It seems like the story is not sure of what it's supposed to tell. There's also too much use of slow motion, and the young boys narrative voice, when thinking.

This is the first feature film directed by Linkin Park-DJ Joseph Hahn, and his music video past is quite obvious. Some clear talent, but the film should have had more work put into the script. The film isn't at all what you think it is, and that is a main problem.
