Storyline

When a young man new in town, the impressionable Chris Donds (Esteban Powell), is drawn into the super wealthy scene of Los Angeles after dark, he confuses his morals and beliefs for absolution and opportunity... the life that dreams as fast as it lives. His new lifestyle of carousing and daredevil brushes with the law leads up to an entanglement with the Russian mafia. Soon, Chris finds that his wealth cannot protect him and his friends from the retribution coming their way. Written by Larry B.

1 very random act of violence against the movie making art
21 October 2003 | by (Wollongong, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time (and I watch a lot of B-grade movies). About the only real violence and action is packed into the last 5 minutes. The rest of the movie is very slow with a rather boring and unbelievable story line that just wanders along without much direction or purpose.

The basic story line - Guy meets bad crew, they do some stupid stuff, everyone gets killed, end of movie.

However there are some rather amusing points that gave me a few laughs when the movie gets so bad it's funny (watch out for the scene when you can see a boom mic 3 times in one shot)
