As he determines who's friend or foe. The decisions Carter makes can, and will cost lives. Written by
Good quality low budget movie. well written with good acting.
I was presently surprised by this movie. It was a well done effort on a small budget. It smart enough to keep me interested throughout. The main character was very gripping and came across well as the bad guy that you cheer for. If you like a good gangster thriller I think this will work for you.
Pros: Storyline Good acting from main characters Writing
Cons: Bad acting from some supporting characters
Would like to see more from this film maker. La Monte Edwards (writer/director) will have a bright future. Hopefully people will be open minded and take this for what it is. Don't understand what some people expect from indies.
