There are not a lot of movies like this one around, so this is truly a rare sight for sore eyes. A detective story with a noir vibe and a lot of science fiction/faction stuff is something that you don’t have coming out every year in abundance. The movie feels like a book, which is really a great feeling, strange, but still great. I must admit that I had doubts about Antonio and how he will pull off such a role, usually reserved for gritty American actors, but he was great. With that experienced look and professional approach, he fitted in nicely with the rest of the cast. Resembling modern comic book adaptations, this contraption of a movie created a fantastic atmosphere that I did not expect from a supervising producer of “Band Of Brothers”. Also you do not have to be a fan of noir movies to enjoy this flick (or of physics, heavily present), it’s good all around.

The Big Bang starts out as a true classic with a private detective, tired of life and everything drinking himself to sleep. But then, suddenly, he gets a new assignment from a pretty big fellow (he’s fucking huge) to find an elusive and mysterious girl, a stripper no more. Like any good detective, Ned Cruz will start following leads  telling him that there is more than meets the eye with this case. Russian mafia, weird experiments, police and many more things will somehow come up during the investigation. While trying to solve this puzzle, Ned will find himself in many dangerous situations with dangerous people, and he will have to think fast if he’s to get out alive out of this. The rest of the puzzle is for you, so check out this great movie as soon as you can.
