Storyline

When Ty's mother dies, he leaves Barstow for the coast, where his mother grew up and where the beach gives him solace. He gets work, makes friends with some local guys, and falls for Sandy, the sister of one of them. Without warning, Ty's hard-edged father, his profane uncle, and his two low-life half-brothers show up, needing a place to hide from the cops for awhile. Ty wants them gone, but his stubborn and ornery family checks into the local motel. Things get worse when the low-life brothers sexually assault Sandy. Her brother and his pals reply with fists. Out come guns and knives, and a showdown in the sand is guaranteed. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ugghh. No. Don't bother.
27 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Normally I don't review movies I stopped watching halfway through, but this one is an exception because I watched it in fastforward til the end. I'll say this: Good casting all around, wonderful visual shots of the beach, cliffs, etc. But that's all this movie has to offer. Dull, dull, dull. C'mon scriptwriter, doesn't Tyler have a second memory of his mother?? Why put us through the same shots over and over again?? Do you wanna know why I rented this movie? Because Michael Vartan (Never Been Kissed) was on the cover, and that guy is HOT!! But c'mon Mike, if you're gonna star in a low budget drama/action film and do your usual puppy dog/ smoldering hunk-o-man thing you always do, could you at least have taken off your shirt, even once?? If you're going to do a boring, poorly written beach film, then at least give your female/gay male fans a reason to want to see it. And Mr. Screenwriter, if you're gonna have a good cast working your material, give them something to work with. I mean really. The first half was so DULL I stopped caring altogether. This was a movie where the lead guy was a Montgomery Clift protagonist/ good guy because that's who he is without explanation, and the bad guys are bad just because. It's like the movie was filmed without a script and the director said, "Okay, actors. Be yourselves, and ACTION!" Michael Vartan stood around with nothing to say, looking longingly into the distance, the redneck brothers slugged each other and playfought because that's what rednecks are supposed to do, and Denis Leary tried to say his lines real fast so as to make himself sound witty. The director needed to challenge his actors and the script needed to challenge the production. Routine with stock performances from good actors from better films, this moviegoer gives this film a big fat F. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, move along.....
