Storyline

Professional killer Gav Reed commits a grave mistake allowing himself to be videotaped (as she always does, for a documentary she hopes to sell to Hollywood about the real nocturnal 'eldest business' there) by Julie Spencer, one of Max 'Slim' Reuter's hookers and porn actresses, whom he had sex with before - and while making a most incriminating call about his murder attempt at a high society campaign party for mayor Garland's electoral challenger Mary Washington, where the bullet is however caught by councilor Frank Constantine, who also survives. Gav's client, businessman Ian Hunter, who was videotaped earlier, has his girl Marina shoot Gav and then Julie, later Slim who. Rough but effective police detective Killian investigates, helped by Julie's friend Carly Marsh, and unravels even more sordid connections. Written by KGF Vissers

Political intrigue and murder in the big city
22 January 2006 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

(Some Spoilers) Doing a documentary on L.A prostitution striper and part-time call girl Julie Spencer,Catalina Larranaga, has all her "tricks" or customers taped with a hidden camcorder while their both doing "it".

Getting into hot and heavy action with her "John" a hyped up Gav Reed, Mark Silvertsen, the two are interrupted and Juile is told to wash up and leave. It turns out that big city real-estate tycoon Ian Hunter and one of his henchmen Nix, Even MacMenzie & Robert McRay, pay Gav a visit talking over a contract hit of mayoral candidate Mary Washington, Angela Sargeant, that's to take place that evening, all this is being secretly taped by Julie's hidden camcorder.

Rav goes to a campaign dinner, disguised as a waiter, for candidate Washington and shoots City Councilman, in fact the City Council President, Frank Constantine (Don Short) who got in the line of fire injuring him. Later Rav is killed by Hunter's hoods to keep him quite if he decided to spill the goods on, or blackmail, the person who paid him to assassinate, which he failed, candidate Washington.

Hunter later that evening goes to Julie's place of work, a sleazy L.A bar where she's a stripper, and asks the owner Slim (Joe Constanza), who's anything but, that he's a movie producer and want's to borrow her, at a good price, for the evening in a porno flick that he's doing. Julie like Rav ends up dead with a bullet in the head and dumped in a dumpster not far from Slim's bar.

It's then when Hunter somehow finds out about the tape and has his hoods break into Julie's apartment. After knocking out both her roommate Carly, Angie Everheart, and Det. Killian (Daniel Baldwin), who was there interviewing her about Julie's murder, they take all of her secret tapes. It's only later that that it's discovered that it's the wrong tape! Not the tape with Hunter giving Rav the letdown and instructions on killing Mary Washington. The films plot has bit more meat to it, besides the graphic sex scenes, then you would have expected from a soft-core porn movie with a good twist ending that you realize is coming long before the movie "Baer Witness" ends.

Both Danial Baldwin & Angie Everheart do their best to make the film believable with Baldwin's impression of a rebel ,do what I wanna do, cop and Everheart's of an ex-hooker with a heart of gold bartender and part-time stripper. Hunter wanting to have a road built from L.A to a desert casino that he owns plays both sides, running for L.A mayor, against the middle to get whoever gets elected to do his bidding.

The fact that the attempted assassination of Mary Washington was a failure and City Councilman Frank Constanstine, who was the one that Hunter really wanted to be mayor, was wounded played right into Hunter's hands. This all set things up up the real attempt to murder Washington at the end of the film.

Finding the missing tape in a electronic store where Julie had her VCR sent to have the tape, that was stuck inside, removed has Hunter and one of his cronies Marina, Lauren Reina, chase Carly all through L,A. Hunters attempt to retrieve and destroy the incriminating tape before it's made public eventually blows Hunter's grand plan to control whoever becomes mayor and pull his, or her, strings to do whatever he want's him, or her, to do.

Slim earlier got wise to Hunter's plans, after Det. Killian and his partner Det. Daulton (Willie Gault) paid him a surprise visit, ends up getting whacked by Marina to keep him from blackmailing her boss who she later sells out. Marina ends up selling the incriminating and politically explosive video tape to CNN News Network,for a hefty fee.
