Storyline

A chronicle of the lives of bouncers - the burly boys who guard both sides of the door in nightclubs across America. The documentary takes an inside look at the mindset of these frequently ridiculed, but always feared enforcers of the night and examines whether they are skilled experts in security, hired to anticipate trouble, or just hired thugs meant to intimidate. Revealed within is a world of notorious nightclub bouncers, including New York's Terence "The Black Prince" Buckley and British legend Lenny "The Guv'nor" McLean who appeared in "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" Written by Sujit R. Varma

A load of CRAP !
12 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most boring films I have ever seen, for 81 minutes all you get is loads of tough looking guys talking about themselves and their experiences of being doormen. There is not nearly enough violence or footage of them actually doing their job to make this watchable, if there was some actual scraps and some real action going on it might grab your interest, but the bouncers themselves have no charisma or presence to make you want to give a s**t about what happens to them or anyone else. The doorman King is such a smug ass that all he talks about are the things offered to him such as blow jobs, cash etc' ,and the fact that none of things ever happen to him doesn't seem to alert him to the fact that he is in his own little dream world. Boring, boring, BORING. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
