Storyline

Chuck Taylor is a charter pilot who unknowingly smuggles cocaine for the Cartel into the U.S. Unfortunately he is captured by the feds. Ironically, so is Tony King, boss of the Cartel. The two are placed in the same cell, and a relentless battle of wills begins. King even has Taylor's family executed from behind bars. When King escapes from the prison, Taylor takes that as his cue to do likewise. He hunts down the members of the Cartel one by one, and gets vengeance for his loved ones in this ultra violent and bloody actioner. Written by Sean Kilby and Jason Parker <gestalt@ix.netcom.com>

Bad guys do a good job of trying to save this bad film .......
31 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Cartel" is a severely disjointed attempt to tell a tale of revenge. It's greatest short coming is that the film tries to do way too much with the totally non-believable script, and the mostly bad acting doesn't help either. Two strong villainous performances from Don Stroud and Gregory Scott-Cummings almost save the day, but not quite. You get at least a bunch of car chases and gratuitous explosions, brief nudity, and a totally wasted performance by William Smith. In summary, a fair amount of action and the presence of Stroud and Scott-Cummings cannot overcome a dreadful performance by the female lead, Crystal Carson, and a seriously flawed script. - MERK
