I will say this for the trailer, it looks like they made a movie that “looks” funky. They did some weird animation over actual footage, or something like that, to create a graphic novel look to a dark story.

From what I can gather there’s a problem in the drug world and an undercover cop has a hard time dealing with it. The web site synopsis says something about “a cautionary tale of drug use” and another synopsis states that, in the near future, lots of people are being recruited by the government to spy on their friends in the name of security and the drug war.

The movie does look kind of cool, and it’s got a pretty bizarre cast, I just hope the wacky animation doesn’t take away from what looks like a good story.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
