Storyline

The late Irish hero fireman's (Lefty) charming son William M. "Billy" Dylan (25) is elected as independent, youngest Massachusettes state representative. He joins the Democrats, Congress seat Beacon Hill's legendary rooster, House speaker Charles T. "Chick" Mudoon, who trusts the customary campaign debt check will reel the rookie in as another meek party soldier. However the naive, naturally noble new boy, who doesn't hesitate to single-handedly fight off two skinhead gay-bashers, has and follows his own conscience. He defeats Muldoon's dodgy attempts to prevent a congressional committee investigating state police school cadet abuse, which would compromise his deputy, majority leader Spanky Reardon. It seems Muldoon's revenged when Dylan gets framed for the alleged violent abuse of a two-faced congressional aid. However, there's a more devious, ambitious plot behind two abuse cases and a staged corrupt payment for a memorial hospital wing. Written by KGF Vissers

It is quite nice enough to watch
26 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Different than the other viewer, I will not make any comment on any political side. I think it is really wrong for one to misuse IMDb site to prolong one's political ideas.

This movie is not a big production but it is absolutely not as bad as the other viewer has said. I notice that it is presented by a studio/maker call Educational Project. It seems that they want to show us some scenes of the reality of our political world. Perhaps that is the reason why some people do not like us to see it. The story is not something special or new, but it is nice enough to watch. I guess due to the limited budget it has been made more like a TV film. They even could only hire two old guys to play the gay couple than hire two handsome young one that usually most other films would have done. Anyway all the actors have at least done their job in a reasonable level. Especially Michael Landes has played his role rather good. I guess this is so far the 2nd film that he has taken a leading role. He has talent. Hope will see more his performance as leading role in the future.
