Storyline

Destn (Tom Sullivan) is the leader of a rock band on the brink of super-stardom. Until now they have juggled their music career with cocaine smuggling. The musicians, and their manager Raf (Jack Palance), wish to sever ties with organized-crime, leave the drug world behind and concentrate on music. However they are coerced into doing one last job for the Mob. They lose the $2 million of cocaine, and find themselves marked men unless they can fulfill their obligations. Written by INFOFREAKO

Ulli Lommel: Genius of the Screenplay
5 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Genius. Moron. Is there a difference? This movie is a hideous waste of celluloid - or any other medium, for that matter. The story was not well thought out at all, as Lommel has admitted. Lommel claimed that this was a legitimate film and not a cover for a cocaine smuggling operation. After watching it, I think anyone would wonder if that could possibly have been the case. I think that any B-movie director who has ever walked up to someone and said, "I have an idea for a film, the story and script are contained in my hand-held cassette recorder and we should start filming next weekend at Andy Warhol's house," should be shot...and not with a camera.
