Sam Ramirez is a veteran cop in the NYPD with very little to talk to about. On a routine stake out, a drug deal goes bad; and he is forced to put his gun to work. Fellow officers soon learn that Ramirez killed Mob Boss Vince Gallo's brother, in revenge for the death of his partner. Now with a Mob contract on his head, and the police wanting him for murder, Ramirez must navigate the shadows of betrayal between the mob enforcers and the police; in a desperate attempt to stay alive and keep a promise to his dead partner. Compelled to fight, Sam's silence is broken by the sound of his gun. Written by
The movie is good for what it is, a low to no budget film. It is along the lines of "El Meriachi" by Robert Rodriguez, his first feature that was later made into a Hollywood blockbuster with Antonio Banderas. Lots of action and some nudity. Perfect for those that like those type of films. If you are looking for high end Hollywood action then you will not like this movie. It gives actors that are not well known a chance to be known for some good work.. For that I recommend it then. I would give it a chance as the story is one that drags you in after the first five minutes. As for the special effects, they are good and the car chases are what low to no budgets get. The fight scenes are great too. Enjoy the movie as I did.
