How to "pay back" a car thief for his dirty deeds!
27 July 2000 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

Now, suppose you walked to your parking garage after a particularly bad day at work, facing the possibility of losing everything you've worked for, and you catch a car thief in the process of stealing your prized new Porsche? You'd probably want to beat the living snot out of him! Well, that's how the movie starts, and that's exactly what Holden Downs does, with the help of a tire iron. Of course, big brother wants to get revenge, and that starts "the rest of the story."

In a very interesting premise, the big businessman manages to hold captive the car thief, caught in the act the second time too! We can all identify with the desire to see justice, but the story gets a bit gory. I must admit that it kept me watching the whole 95 minutes. This movie is much more terrifying than that bad movie, "Blair Witch Project", because it gets you thinking what you would do if someone broke into your house after dark and you were alone!

Although much of the movie was inventive, the ending was not particularly clever nor satisfying. There were no winners, all losers. Still, I give it 5 of 10 for such an interesting premise, and macabre entertainment value.
