A nice sound track.
11 February 2001 | by (Madison, WI) – See all my reviews

That's about the only good thing about this film. Set as one giant flashback as told by drug dealer/poet "Dipper" as he sits in a police interrogation. Everyone has great nick names like "T-Bone", "Nick the Stick" and "Big Fats".

Dipper tells the story about how he get contacted by this "wanna-be" crook named Billy (the only character, it seems, without a nickname). Of course, everyone is trying to double-cross everyone else and in the end "Dipper" is left holding the bag.

The biggest problem is the parts that "Dipper" is supposed be describing when he isn't even in the room where the action takes place. Then there are unneeded scenes with "T-Bone" and his girl "Mo".

Even with all that, they couldn't come up with enough dialog or action to make a full length movie, so they throw in scans of the city in what seems like every 10 minutes.

The of course there is the diamond, which is supposed to be worth $180,000. Give me a break! If that diamond was more then 2 carats (in the movie they save 8 or 9) it's not by much.

Given all that, Robert Patorelli does a decent job as T-Bone, as does Glenn Plummer in the role of "Dipper". And of course, Brion James always plays a good psycho.

The story is tired, the dialog is poor, the plot is full of holes and the ending you can see from a mile away, which is how far you should stay from this movie.
