Can low budget mean seedy, sexy and smart...You Bet! (by Donovan1)
I don't like to repeat what has been said before, but it is true. This is very much like Tarantino meets Ritchie. With that said, here is the lowdown. The first scene set has such a great slap to it, if you do not find it funny; there is no sense in going any further.Three mates best friends get put into an underground pool tournament. The real catch is it consists of only one game per match and locations of the matches keep changing. Keep in mind; the `shock' content is part of this grand journey. The dialogue is quite humorous. Although you may not get all of the humor, as this <more>
is a New Zealand Kiwi brand of humor, it is great just the same.The three words to best describe this film would be seedy, sexy, and smart. The many directions the characters go in this film is exactly what happens to real people when put under strange conditions. This is totally devoted to the characters rather than pool, but it is sure to be a pool theme classic film. Low budget? You bet, but totally worth it. So I do recommend it for the Babes, Booze, Bars, Bros., and yes of course - the pool!PEACE!
I loved this film. Ok, it's made on the cheap, the story is very basic and some of the characters are over the top, but that describes "Resevoir Dogs" and " Lock, Stock..." as well. The acting and sense of humour are superb, and it contains a real insight into New Zealand's lad culture. Visually stunning, occasionally letting style overtake substance just like Tarantino and Ritchie did with their films , it is a joy to watch. And the drunken pool master is really funny. If you're prepared to let the higher brain functions have a night off, catch this film. <more>
More fun than a cat in a Microwave. And if that line offends you, probably give this film a miss.
Pool meets the New Zealand underground (by akarus121)
A story about three friends playing in an underground pool tournament, this film should appeal to pool lovers, and fans of the classic UK gang films, such as "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels."Stickmen isn't a high-budget, perfectly polished film, unlike most of those released today, but it's all the better for it; where other movies rely on digital editing and fancy effects to perfect them and draw their audiences, Stickmen uses a good story and great characters.The slightly rough, almost unfinished look makes you feel a greater connection with the <more>
story, and fits in with the underground society into which the characters are thrown.Add in the tournaments, ranging through the tense, hilarious and the spectacular, this is a film to watch whether you play the game or not.
"Pub pool has to be the ultimate game, its got everything" (by adam-541)
I watched this movie late on a Saturday night on T.V and hadn't even heard of it. I was thoroughly surprised and uplifted by the whole thing. I play pub pool and a lot of the dialogue and circumstances made me chuckle in my armchair. E. g when Thomas Paulo Rotondo says "I mean as long as i have got a pool cue in one hand, a beer in the other, coin on the table and my mates by my side I'll be happy". That is me all over. I bought this movie straight after I watched it but had to wait 2 weeks for my local video store to order it in. A film like this should not be one to be <more>
forgotten on the shelf never mind not even find it. One of my favourite films of today. With no well known actors this film wouldn't appeal to most, but seriously don't judge a book by its cover, or a video or a CD. 9 out of 10 a must see for the pub sportsman.
Why do so many people want to compare this film to lock stock? is it a British thing? maybe. ENOUGH ABOUT LOCK STOCK which in my opinion was a film full of mis cast actors.Stickmen does not make you rethink your life! Stickmen does not make you want to start your own pool team! dirty dancing made me want to dance, Rocky made me want to box. What stickmen gives you is 1.5 hrs of laughs followed by tension, followed by romance followed by pool. It is full of kiwi humour and although a different genre to "brain dead" it clearly has the same down to earth non pompous attitude to <more>
laughter.so lets get our heads out of our butts and laugh at Wayne, envy Jack and get our moms to smother Thomas in kisses. Who would have thought that so many class performances could have come from Shortland street.
A very enjoyable movie, probably aimed more at those with a Kiwi/Oz style sense of humor. It may even go over the heads of anyone who has a limited grasp of Kiwi/Oz modern-day culture. So those viewers who find no pleasure in this movie should not try to dissuade those who haven't seen it from checking it out. A bit of blokey fun for those who enjoy a laugh with their mates. Check it out. 9/10
Highly Enjoyable - Made me laugh, made me cringe, Made me smile! (by Kris_London)
I saw this film on TV and wasn't expecting anything more than something to fill the time one late night. However I was happily surprised to see this event-packed tale of 3 good mates. The main characters were presented clearly and reasonably comprehensively in relation to the storyline which produced a believable and enjoyable turn of events involving gangs, women and money, what else do you want? For those expecting a film just about pool and the life of wanna-be pros, don't bother watching it. Here you are shown the 'underground' of New Zealand and although I have no clue <more>
how accurate, or not, this is; it is an interesting change on the usual Italian mob or gang-bangers you normally see in movies. The film gets better as it goes along and the comedy is seamlessly woven in, both situational and dialogue based. Something that I won't forget for a very long time is the 'guy in the pink shirt' scenario! I highly recommend this film which likes any of the following film plots - Underground life, Gangsters, friends sticking together or being the 'underdogs'. For those who are not fans of these plot lines then I recommend it anyway as I doubt many would be disappointed!
