Storyline

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. There are now too many guns and takers for the money for the plot to end without a heavy body count, while happy ends ... Written by KGF Vissers

Not the worst film I've ever seen, but it ranks among the worst.

Best described as a cynical appeal to the adrenaline junky, this film features an unbelievably high body count, a thin plot, and really goes overboard with its unrelenting stream of obscenities. None of this appears to support any higher purpose or artistic intent and is therefore basically gratuitous. Skip this one. There are many better crime thrillers out there that are not this junky or offensive.
