Chris Troiano runs South Beach (greater Miami)'s most popular nightclub, a recreational goldmine. Fellow New York immigrant Andy Burnett quickly rises from bouncer on trial to Troiano's trusted security chief and right hand. Thus he slowly discovers the club's entanglement with both the Russian mafia and domestic mob king Allie Boy, obviously involved in murders and arson. Andy is in fact an undercover cop, but risks losing trust with all superiors, except his immediate chief, so a trap must urgently be set. Written by KGF Vissers

Surprisingly good for a TV movie...
27 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is actually a very good movie. Most movies that are made for TV are always missing out on certain things that the big movies have, but not this time. The story revolves around Andy Burnett (Wahlberg) and Chris Troiano (Gedrick). Andy Burnett has just moved down to South Beach and is looking for some work, he happens upon Troiano, who is a night club owner. Andy starts out as just a bouncer, but scores some major poins with Troiano (warns him about a police raid, backs him up in a fight against some russians), so pretty soon Troiano takes Andy under his wing. I can't go any further into the plot cause it would ruin the entire movie. But let me just say, watch this film cause it is very good. Good story, good acting, a few good fight and action scenes, and great chemistry between the two main stars. I give it a 7/10, cause I would definitely watch it again.
