Storyline

After spending more seven years in prison, the criminal Tommy is released and his former partner Mick is waiting for him to take him home. Mick is an ex-convict that is straight now, working as a janitor in a porno shop and living in the decadent and filthy Golden Eagle hotel in Los Angeles. He tells Tommy that he has saved 2.5 thousand dollar and has bought two tickets to Las Vegas for them. Mick's intention is to find a job in a casino and begin a new life with his old friend in a nice place. The dirty Golden Eagle is a joint where prostitutes meet clients and losers and decadent people live. When Mick goes to work his last night in his job, Tommy brings the prostitute Amber to the room to have sex with her. Amber works with her friend Sally on the streets and their pimp is the strong Rodan that is luring the fifteen year-old runaway Loriann, promising that she will become a cinema actress. Tommy fails with Amber and she mocks him. Tommy gets angry and kills Amber. When Mick returns... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not a fun movie
18 June 2003 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not your typical family fare. It's the story of a smalltime thug (Mic) with a bad temper, who gets released from jail. He's greeted at the gate by his longtime buddy (Tommy) who has decided to reform. He wants to go to Las Vegas and bring Mic along. Well, the fact that Mic has a bad temper and is an ex-con should tell you enough to know what will go on. The Golden Eagle is a rundown hotel full of poor, depraved people. A place where dreams come to die an ugly death.

None of the characters was very appealing, the filming is very dark and the story moves slowly. It's an exercise in character definition and acting. If that's what you're looking for in a movie, then this is the movie for you. However, my main problem with it, and the reason I rate it a 6, is that it's not entertaining. When I pulled the DVD out of the player, I didn't feel like I enjoyed myself, The movie didn't move me or make me think and that's a big failure in my book.
