Henry, an uptight businessman who sometimes acts with questionable ethics, nevertheless rejects Ron, a scam artist who wants a partner. Ron won't let up and finds a lever to blackmail Henry, whose daughter Gina has killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run car accident. To protect Gina, Henry disposes of Ron, but a murderous sociopath witnesses this crime. Henry and this stranger bond in an odd way, telling stories about their childhoods. Henry makes a deal with the stranger, helping to get rid of the body of one of the stranger's victims. Will this act seal a bargain between the two men and get Henry off the hook, or will the stranger threaten Henry and Gina? Written by <>

I liked it!
27 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

In my opinion; I liked this movie. I think the writing was above board. To put two really good Hollywood actor's together and not create an abomination coined as a feature film, is a monumental task. Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen were great. Give the Director credit, for a low budget film, this film is far better than the crap we are forced to digest on Netflix and Blockbuster. The setup I felt was interesting, and Hopper's character was riveting from the first moment he hit the screen. The confrontation and spin in the plot was when Hopper's character throws the body out of the window. The introduction to Madsen's character (Classic Madsen bad guy) adds a good spin to the story, and the resolution is a twist unexpected. Even though the dialog was a bit verbose, it was still good dialog and story driven. And let's not forget the 200 ft. SuperBee pipe ramp. Classic and well done! If you want to sit down and take the film apart, you will surely find something to *itch about. Honestly, you can sit down for 95 minutes and be entertained. Enough said.
