Goth-girl Cindy admires beautiful Laurie from afar, until the night when she dresses as a boy for the prom. Will this gender-bending Cinderella find true love when she leaves behind her little black boot?
Shadow (Woodbine), a once-promising boxer, finds it hard to readjust to civilian life after spending ten years in prison. Offered the chance to fight again -- this time on the underground street fighting circuit -- Shadow initially takes to the opportunity, but he and his wife (Cox) find out it's a tough racket to leave behind.
Mamie Louise Anderson,
The scene near the beginning of the movie where Chance blasts the doors open had to be shot twice. During the first take, an inefficient amount of explosives were used that didn't entirely blow the doors away, so primer cord was used for the final shot seen in the film. See more »
When Chance gets out of his car to meet for the final showdown, we see him holding a Glock 17. However, upon entering the building we see that he is inexplicably brandishing a 1911. See more »
If for no other reason one should view this movie as a perfect example one two things. First being why you should not let an actor of questionable talent write, produce, and star in his own film. Second would be how not to make a movie...period. I suppose I'll give Rick Yune an "A" for effort seeing as how he wrote the story, produced the film, and starred in it. That's got to take a lot of work. That does not, however, excuse his lackluster performance and the stinted dialogue of the lead and pretty much all characters. Even Keith David, a talented character actor who almost always seems to pick lousy roles, couldn't do much even with the rather limited time he's on screen. In the time Yune spent putting his name all over this thing he could've done things like...oh, I don't know...learned how work with a fight choreographer. The young Chance, played by the ridiculously-named-but-very-talented young martial artist Boo Boo Stewart, wastes his time impressing with his skills early. Then Yune pitches all of that out the window by displaying the martial arts skills of a bag of hammers. What action sequences there are do not come off as anything special and some almost yawn-inducing. Sadly this movie could have been a showcase for the potential of more than just Yune, but it trips out of the gate and just continues falling farther and farther back until you don't even care how it ends. Well, at least I didn't.
