Storyline

The Local follows Noname, an enigmatic man running from a tortured past. He is trapped in a violent Brooklyn underworld as the lowly drug runner for a gang of crazed veterans. There, Noname is approached by a wealthy out-of-towner who offers him a large sum of money to "rescue" the man's heroin-addicted daughter from his employer's drug lair. Noname soon realizes that saving the girl is more than a payday. It will grant him a way out of his purgatory after a lifetime of wrongdoing, and open a path toward personal redemption.

Community college freshmen A/V project
13 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Script is boring, characters undeveloped, plot unimaginative, anticlimactic, horrible camera affects, and just all-around waste of time...

unless it was someones homework assignment...then I'd give em a D+...

But since this was actually written, directed, and produced into this mess and then put out into the world for others to view...then I must say that Dan Eberle,you are an epic failure!

Steer clear of this film that should have been put out in the garbage...

There is some brief full-frontal female nudity, but not long enough, nor satisfying enough, to warrant any amount of the time spent suffering through this junk.
