******SPOILERS***** Low budget crime movie set in Minnesota about a street thug who tries to make it big time with the syndicate only to find out in the end that theirs no honor among thieves even though honor was the reason that he joined up with them in the first place.
Joe Webster, Justin Pagel, always excelled at whatever he did as a boy. As a young man he wanted to be a criminal and tried excelling at that too. With his two friends in crime Danny Bruke, Scott Cooke, and Jake Bailey, Michael Egan, they were anything but successful at their chosen profession. It's then that Joe decided to go solo as a criminal by working his way up the ladder of crime for the Sid Donnelly, Philip Ray,Mob which controlled all the criminal activities in the North-West with it's offices centered in Minnesota.
Joe being good at his job which was whatever his boss Donnelly wanted him to do started getting up in the world of crime. Donnelly assigned Joe a job of breaking into his rival mobsters, McAllister, headquarters and replacing a number of computer disks. In this way Donnelly can wipe out McAllister's criminal operations as well as his cash flow by just hitting a number of keys on a keyboard. Joe got his friends, Danny and Jake, to help him in doing the job for Donnelly. Joe doesn't realize that Donnelly came to an agreement with McAllistr. To show that he was dealing in good faith Donnelly sold out Joe and his friends to McAllister by telling him that they were going to rip off his headquarters that night.
The McAllister mob ended up killing Joe's friends Danny and Jake, with the help of the Donnelly mob, by tracking them down after they raided McAllister's headquarters and lifted the computers disks Joe now a marked man, had only one option left for him: Go back to his boss Donnelly's headquarters and finish some very pressing business that he has with him.
1930's type crime movie about one working himself up in the crime world only to find out that your expendable ,no matter how big you think you are, and that it's a business that you don't retire from but that it retires you. Rough around the edges but well rounder story with a fascinating as well as shocking conclusion that sharpens some things that were starting to get a little fuzzy and out of focus when the movie was winding down.
