When i first watched this film earlier this year i found it depressing due to the ending, but rewatching it a second time i knew the outcome and could appreciate the film a bit more. Directors Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen did a good job with this. This true story based indie movie is well-acted, Chris Evans plays the character of real life Michael David "Mike" Weiss very-well as a clever probate lawyer that loves his drugs, but starts to get extremely serious about exposing and taking down a powerful company that refuses to use safer needles, he makes the character likable which has you feeling very sad when his ultimate outcome is revealed. This film is informative, and Weiss's actions with the lawsuit obviously inspired his friend/work-partner to continue with the case, and as we find out - a lot of hospitals now use the new plastic needles, but most hospitals are still deciding to stay old-school resulting in tragedies as well as the plastic needles apparently being reused in poor countries also resulting in diseases. The bottom line is a small positive outcome/change was made through all of this, which is a great thing! By the time the film ends, you can't help but feel sadness due to the tragic end of Weiss's life. The film makes it seem like his death may have been the result of foul play with that car that follows him before his death, but then the film tells us his death was the result of a drug overdose and no further investigation was made. The end scene is the most heartbreaking scene and that depressing song at the end does not help. I only recommend that you watch this film once or twice at the most.
