Storyline

Growing up in the roughest area of New Jersey, adopted brothers Mark (Patrick Muldoon) and Tony were always "wise" beyond their years. As adults, the two have both found work as hired killers - one for the Mob, the other for the CIA. When a scheme to embezzle millions in government funds is uncovered, the evidence points straight to the top of the Agency. The two brothers are drawn into the center of the action as they protect the needy hacker (Judge Reinhold) who is the only cyber-witness to the crime. Dodging multiple hit squads, they try to stay one step ahead of the army of agents and Wise Guys gunning for them. With the help of a childhood friend, the now beautiful and sex Laura (Carmen Electra), as well as the local Mob boss, they just mi ft save themselves and catch the criminals in the process. If not, they could be the next ones who get WHACKED! Written by Robert Alexander

watch paint dry
17 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll have to explode the bomb here, because the other reviewers seem a little too forgiving, for whatever reasons.

This is a terrible pilot for a cable-TV show that, apparently (thank god) wasn't broadcast.

Two friends grow up in a mob-controlled neighborhood; one becomes the hit-man of for the mob, one a professional assassin for the CIA. They are at last re-united to save an ex-hippie who has discovered a mob-CIA connection that is cheating both mob and CIA out of big bucks. Along the way, there's a love interest or two, family business with the mob-boss, the ex-hippie discovers he's attractive to a ditsy blond (comic relief), computers are essential to the plot, all guns come equipped with silencers and the two heroes are allowed to pose ala The Boondock Saints (from whence this movie gets its inspiration, if it has any). Lots of shooting and little blood (the old TV give-away) and explosions and of course about four big car-chases, since people who make these kinds of films think cars are just naturally exciting (yawn).

The whole story is dismally cynical, towards its characters, its culture, and its audience. However, being an action film, this might be forgivable - except the film is pretty darn low on action, and when it happens, it's handled rather poorly.

There's no one to care about here, and the plot is pointlessly nonsensical. And - the big nail in the coffin, especially for action films - it's just plain dull.

Take some Quaaludes and watch paint dry, you'll have more fun.
