Kevin Jones writes: "The twisted tale of Max gives us an up close view of his life in the past and the future. His addiction to Pain-killers and alcohol paints him as a grotesque substance abuser. His absolute disdain for the breath coming out of his lung furthers his self-loathing even more. His cast away career has turned him into a trumped up security guard for rich and unscrupulous people. The situation becomes worse when he fails at protecting the prized female of his boss, and he goes through life and limb to bring her back unharmed."
