Great film, great soundtrack
12 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining movie, especially if you remember the '90s. It's a reminder of how exciting things were back then, with the new tech and before things went crazy here. The soundtrack is first-rate, and Jeremy London is fantastic, as is Ryan Hurst and William Devane. In fact, there are no weak performances. The film deals with two brothers who basically took on the business world and came out winners, which ticked off the big boys in the industry, who came after them with guns blazing. Devane is wonderful, as always. Any chance to see this great actor should be taken advantage of. And Heather McComb is lovely as always. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it that much more interesting. A really entertaining film, you won't be disappointed!
