When Jack, a small criminal who never amounted to something after systematical abuse by his father, is just out of jail after six months for his part in a theft of TV sets, he has nowhere else to crash then the place where his brother Moe, a penniless jazz musician, lives upstairs illegally. Their life suddenly gets a new perspective when they observe a robbed armored car is parked downstairs by three black hardened criminals. Jack only has eyes for the mountain of cash that can turn them instantly super-rich, and produces -to his startled brother's surprise- a hand gun, just in case; Moe on the other hand is reticent, till they notice a blonde girl which the hoods hold handcuffed, then decides rescuing her is worth the risk. After the three thugs have a row, Trent, who is unruly even by their standards, takes off but returns with a few scared white buddies of his.

This movie is the perfect example where a decent plotline featuring good actors can be totally butchered by terrible scripting and bad dialogue. While the premise of a straight forward armoured car robbery and the subsequent battle for the spoils is (in my humble opinion) a solid storyline, the execution of the storyline in this movie is so bad as to be almost unwatchable. This is obviously a made-for-TV movie (the DVD features 4x3 format and stereo sound only, no widescreen or 5.1), but manages to fall short of even that benchmark. The characters are (for the most part) ridiculous, the dialog extremely corny, and the details of the storyline so bad they would appear to have been written by a ten year old. The thing that lured me to hire this piece of rubbish was the R rating - I was expecting some violent and graphic acts of carnage. But even the action sequences in this movie are poor - one notably featuring a bizarre looping of footage after someone is shot. Whether this was an editing glitch or a failed attempt to heighten the dramatic impact of the sequence is open for debate. In short, avoid this film like the proverbial plague. Do yourself a favour, and hire The Salton Sea instead.
