Typically fun entry from PM.
2 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jeff Fahey stars in this amusing little addition to the extensive catalogue of action output from PM Entertainment. As with all output by the PM guys, you can therefore rest assured on lots of super cool car chases, fights, shooting and explosions will ensue and sure enough, this entry doesn't disappoint. What really makes this stand out though is the bizarre and somewhat ridiculous plot which involves a seventies disco group who take revenge upon a former fellow member after he makes the huge mistake of sampling some of their old material into modern gangster rap tracks(!!!!!!!) Well, how can anyone not warm to such an hilariously daft story line?

Fahey turns in an incredibly laid back performance yet nonetheless, is great fun to watch as always and his new partner played by Michael Mcfall, is similarly entertaining in a role that had the budget been bigger, might have gone to Samuel Jackson.

Well, what more can be said? If you've ever watched anything from the PM guys before, you'll know exactly what to expect and if you haven't yet had the pleasure of a PM release then why not take this opportunity to try one?
