I WANT TO KILL - what a surprise Credited Review
When I received this assignment I didn't expect much. I actually anticipated something fairly juvenile and shallow and violent.

I was wrong. This work contains good development of characters that I surprisingly found myself very interested in. Dialogue and interplay were good, and for being supposed killers, Ned and Harry were actually, clumsily endearing. I also saw what I look for in characters - change. Ned turned from a 'tard' into a biker with a babe on the rear seat. I liked his swerve from killer wannabe to someone who appreciated the softness of a female victim's long neck, sparing her.

The story was edgily effective too. Killer wannabe is a victim of his unknowing gay victim. That's good stuff. Such flavor fuels the entire story.

This work was an unexpected pleasure to read and I can certainly see it made with effective casting. It's right in line with the works of Coen brothers or Tarantino - different, engaging, and entirely quirky!

So, I should give a criticism. There are a few typos, but not many. Give a quick proofread. That's it.

PS; I loved Ned's signs!

    The main purpose of scripts and films is to make the audience suspend disbelief no matter how obscure or far-reaching the story. The audience believed in ET, and Jurassic dinosaurs because the films were conceivably written and made. FIRE HEART fails to do that. I hate to say it, but I didn't follow the story or the emotional lines. Everything was too disjointed and the... read

    Let me say right off, I liked this screenplay. Characters that come to life, and change, and like each other, capture me every time. This is true even when the story is a little out there. Story timing was good and the comedic lines and pieces were well-paced and effective. I noticed, though, that the story suggests another "Sex In The City" group of girls. They essentially... read
