Storyline

The Beat Nicks are musician Nick Nero and poet Nick Beat, a pair of self-styled truth-seekers who'd better find a gig or they'll be out on the street. Their luck begins to change when they find a box on the beach, a treasure chest of infinite beats that will set the stage for the ultimate success, a gig at the Monkey Club. But when Nick Nero falls in love with Nica, the club owners captive bride, he learns that they are some truths better left unsought. Hard knocks and a trip to rock bottom reunites the Nicks to preform the gig of a lifetime, and return the box to its source. Written by Anonymous

I'm so happy this movie has come to DVD. I've told numerous people about this film only to have to tell them it wasn't out on DVD. It is poetry on celluloid. Norman Reedus as Nick Nero and Mark Boone Junior as Nick Beat how could you possibly go wrong. Not to mention Eric Roberts can play creepy like nobody's business. There wasn't a single role that wasn't acted to perfection. Nor was there a shot that wasn't beautiful. Add in the great soundtrack and you've got gold. You won't find a movie quiet like it. Plus you have to give any film some respect that has had such an devote underground fan following. You should definitely give it a try you won't be sorry.
