Holden Downs: [Comes in with plate of bread and cup of water] Well, good morning sunshine. How did you like my new stereo system? Music that has power to soothe the savage beast.
Holden Downs: Hmm. There's a distinct stench coming from there, have you been marking your territory?
Robert Breed: I pissed on your precious upholstery.
Holden Downs: How rodent-like of you. Well, I'm sure that the stench is going to bother you more than it's gonna bother me. Oh, I got you some breakfast. Bread and water. Brot und Wasser. Hmm. Bon App├ętit.

More violent than I would have liked, some of it was good
13 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Holden Downs is building Millennium City, but he has a problem with environmentalists who sue to stop the project. Downs is so obsessed with the project he puts his marriage to Fay in jeopardy, but Fay has to leave town for a few days to visit her sister Sheila.

After Robert tries to steal Downs' expensive car, Downs insists that Buddy upgrade the alarm system, which wasn't working properly. Buddy does more than that: he has a 'surprise' for the next thief. The title of the movie should be a hint as to the nature of that surprise.

The best parts of the movie deal with what happens when Robert tries again to steal the car. The actors playing Holden and Robert do their best work of the movie soon after the attempt. This part of the movie is actually funny! But there is quite a bit of blood. I don't know how much was edited for TV, but let me put it this way: I'm so glad I didn't sharpen my hedge clippers. I'm scared of hurting myself as it is.

It wasn't a great movie, but it had its good parts.
