Trivia

The picture was designed to alter the "geek" image of lead actor Anthony Michael Hall by playing a more "macho" type role. Hall had become typecast playing such "nerd" types in 1980s teenpics. See more »

Jeff Kober Is The Man
25 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

One thing this movie won't do is bore you. From beginning to end, it feels like a roller-coaster ride that doesn't wanna stop, even if you feel like getting off. Since it's an action movie, you have to give it credit for that because everything that's happening feels so real. There's no special effects at all in this movie. Instead, we have the mean streets of L.A. and the even meaner Jeff Kober. The guy has always been a mystery to me. He has this bizarre quality to his roles that makes him fun to watch. This movie here was Kober's first ever, and he's credible as a sadistic drug dealer going after Anthony Michael Hall and Jenny Wright for stealing his heroin. Loaded with shootouts and a great soundtrack, the L.A. punk rock scene is in full effect.

Score, 8 out of 10 Stars
