Storyline

Joe Dylanne is a plainclothes NYC cop with a badge... and a robust personality. He always resorts to unconventional methods in order to capture the city's slickest criminals. When Dylanne receives a message from Katy, an old sweetheart of his, the news is not as pleasant as he anticipated. Rather, it is an imperative call for help. Dylanne must swing into full action. This cop must travel to a remote location in the northwest in order to investigate the disappearances of his friend's relatives. It turns out that most of Kate's relatives have been murdered in cold blood. The only survivor of the slaughter is Joshua, an angst-ridden survivalist who explains to Dylanne about a sophisticated plan implicating marijuana plant growers. Dylanne and Joshua must trespass enemy territory in the name of revenge... Written by David Choi <KDaDDyChOi@aol.com>

User Reviews

A tough NYC plainclothes cop who has always worked within the law, is suddenly forced to go outside the law to deal with some really bad outlaws.

Joe Dylanne (James Remar) is a tough NYC plainclothes cop who has always done things his way, but always within the law. He had faith in the judicial system until a family is brutally murdered in cold blood. The only survivor is the son, who left for dead, became a survivalist, living off the land and waiting for the right time to get even with the murderers.

The plot sounds like your average good guys vs. bad guys action movie. While such action movies are a dime a dozen, this movie is different. The story line is simple, straight and to the point! It involves a small quiet town up in the northwest that is under a reign of terror imposed by some ruthless drug dealers with a huge marijuana farm in the middle of a dense forest.

The movie starts with a plea for help from the girlfriend of Joe Dylanne, a tough NYC plainclothes cop.

From that point on, there is not a dull moment in this movie!

The action is non-stop from start to finish. The plot has a few twists and a few surprises and is guaranteed to leave the viewer glued to his chair. The chase scenes alone make this movie an essential must-see.
