Your average cops and robbers flick. No big names in it.
24 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was probably a B picture when it came out. It is your standard cops and robbers flick with average acting, no big names and a very low budget. You can't see any walls moving in the print I watched but I bet you could on a better print! Not much happens. The feds infiltrate the mob and take them down. And our hero (Elliott) gets the girl in the closing act.

There is some perfunctory startup footage about how the mob is going to take over everything that happens in the 2 Billion dollar gambling racket in their area (the U.S.?) and then the pedestrian action starts. There are a few killings and little else. It works through just like you would predict. All the bad guys get arrested and the good guys come out ahead including the top good guy ignoring that his love interest is up to her eyeballs in the illegal operation. But he is in love with her so he can ignore it and still feel good about himself. The film ends before we find out how he manages this mental feat.

Not long. Not great. Not horrible. Pop the popcorn and start with this one then go on to something good. It is not a waste. Just like a long cartoon before the REAL movie starts...
