A coolly crafted cat-and-mouse game "Shortcut Romeo" finds Neil giving grit to the gripping goings-on. But the overall product could have been far less retrogradatory in tone. Nonetheless enjoyable while it lasts.
SHORTCUT ROMEO is a well-made, stylish crime story with high-voltage drama as its highpoint. It may not boast of A-listers in its cast, but it has ample entertainment and edge-of-the-seat moments to offer. I suggest, give this one a chance!
