You Need The Same Skills
10 November 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Knight Club is a group of trained security people, aka bouncers which Lou Diamond Phillips heads who do the security at various Hollywood clubs. A young aspiring actor Lochlyn Munro whose career is going nowhere fast hooks up with Phillips and his group and he does real well at first. Lou's part is similar to what Patrick Swayze was in Road House.

It's all in the attitude and the skills you need to defend yourself and maintain order. Acting is about fakery and convincing people you're something you're not and that's half the job as a bouncer. Munro who got dumped by his girlfriend is soon awash in feminine pulchritude.

But it all goes to his head and Munro who starts as a nice kid from Wyoming takes a mighty big fall.

There seems to be a real sharp division of opinion on this film, people either seem to like it or hate it. For myself it's not Citizen Kane, but both Munro and Phillips give good performances in the parts of a kid and his mentor who fall out with bad consequences for the former.

It will never be listed among the great films for Lou Diamond Phillips, but it's not half bad.
