    Ronna needs to make some extra cash. Simon wants to escape to Vegas for the weekend. Adam and Zack want to stay out of trouble. But it`s not just another night in the life of these unusual characters. They`re about to embark on a wild ride that won`t end until the sun comes up.

    This hip, outrageous and action-packed hit from the director of Swingers (Doug Liman) features a pulsating sound track and surprising performances from hot newcombers. Go is a sexy and hilarious comedy that stretches the limits of how far you can go and still get home from the party alive.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    Doug Liman, acclaimed director of `Swingers` follows that up with a roller-coaster-ride through 24 hours in the lives of a group of Los Angeles supermarket assistants and the people they meet.

    Reminicent of Tarantinos Pulp Fiction, the plot of Go manages to twist in such a way that it integrates four or five seperate stories and dozens of characters together in a very clever way.

    Some of the sub plots include a failed drug deal, a road trip to Vegas and a few `bent` cops (watch the film and you`ll understand...).

    All the actors play their parts well, most notable are Dawsons Creek`s Katie Holmes as Claire, the Brit Simon (who I think I recogise from Grange Hill) and Timothy Olyphant as the incredibly cool drug dealer Todd Gaines.

    As for the DVD, it sports an excellent set of features including directors commentary, deleted scenes, production notes, making of featurette, trailer and music videos. The video quality is also good, though this isn`t really a movie to showcase your setup. Similarly the sound is good. Nice use of the surround features are used in the night club and casino

    Also worth mentioning is the movies music soundtrack which impressed me so much I bought the CD. It includes new material from artists like Air, Len, No Doubt and Natalie Imbruglia.
