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
...but it isn't. Its actually a fairly serious attempt at filmmaking.
This 'movie' was passed on to me by a friend who has a friend who is an aspiring actor and was one of the leads. Hopefully, he takes some classes and never mentions to anyone that he appeared in this film. YIKES. I am also considering de-friending said friend for passing this on to me.
Silent Sam is a sad, desperate, pathetic attempt to make a film on little money in hopes of some sort of DVD release. Unfortunately, they had a VERY amateur cast (honestly, its hard to concentrate on the 'story' when you spend most of the time cringing and/or feeling sorry for the performers. I have to assume none of them were paid)an inexperienced crew and little or no money for effects. It says the budget for the film is $300,000. I would love to know where that went. Seriously. Somebody tell me.
Silent Sam proves that literally anybody can make a movie. But should they be allowed? If you are feeling suicidal, this is not recommended viewing.
