Storyline

In a smoke-filled dive in Buffalo, NY, David Marx tells us his tale of obsession, betrayal, and murder - leading him to an uncertain fate "underneath Niagara Falls." David tells us how his beautiful redheaded ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Barnes, has disappeared and how he ended up the guardian of the 2.5 million dollars that "was supposed to have bought Jen's safety." Three nights ago, David finds police detectives Crane and O'Keefe trashing his apartment. Taking him to Police Headquarters, they interrogate David about Jennifer's disappearance, and Crane - in the name of Jen's father, the rich and powerful Ethan Barnes - brutalizes poor David in hopes of getting a confession out of him. When falsely accused, what's a film noir hero to do but search for the truth himself? Written by Paul DeNigris

Great movie for the budget, average movie overall
26 November 2004 | by (San Pedro) – See all my reviews

Nice budget on the movie. The soundtrack was one of the best parts. The plot rolls along looking like a bad copy of a Bogart movie. Even the cheesy bad cop/good cop was included. The difference between this movie and something for HBO or some other pay per view movie was the cops and some polish on the special effects. Don't you hate seeing blood without bleeding, closeup shots of scar-less red faces was kind of goofy. The infatuation for red-heads was interesting, having suffered first-hand their treachery it seemed like an interesting theme. My biggest bitch was it was just too stupid. The things the lead character did, the ongoing chasing of the suspected killer, they would fight, then leave, then he'd hunt him down again so they could fight, then he leaves, then he does it all over again. The intelligence of the plot is questionable, although the last 5 minutes almost makes up for it. This movie fits in anyones "straight to DVD" collection, worth watching, even if only to see how much movie $75 000 buys. But when voting for the collective movie database, its only average, deserving a 6.
