Unpleasant and Depressing Feature
23 June 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After spending more seven years in prison, the criminal Tommy (Donnie Montemarano) is released and his former partner Mick (Vinny Argiro) 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 (Natasha Lyonne) to the room to have sex with her. Amber works with her friend Sally (Ann Magnuson) on the streets and their pimp is the strong Rodan (Vinnie Jones) that is luring the fifteen year-old runaway Loriann (Nicole Jacobs), 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 to his room, he finds her body. Will that be the end of Mick's dreams?

"Night at the Golden Eagle" is a depressing feature with unpleasant characters. The story is awful, without humor or moral, and the subplots are repulsive. The lead plot refers to Mick and Tommy and is neither good nor interesting; the subplot with the young prostitute is depressive; the plots with the lonely old tapper and his dog and the television viewer are melancholic. In the end, "Night at the Golden Eagle" is a movie that will make you feel completely down. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Iniciação" ("The Initiation")
