Sean P. Donahue,
The story of a Los Angeles hit man. Corrado is the best there is in the city of LA. Pimped by his nefarious handler, Frankie, he performs jobs ranging from tune-ups to outright hits. Frankie loves Corrado for his lack of mercy, for his coldness and readiness to do the job no matter what. Now Frankie has a pearl of a job for Corrado - hit the aging kingpin Vittorio Spinello in his own house. Make it look like Vittorio's death is an accident, get out, and $500K is his. Corrado readily accepts. Corrado is about to perform the hit when he is interrupted by Vittorio's brand new live in nurse, Julia, and winds up shooting Vittorio dead and escaping out the window to leave Julia holding the bag. Julia doesn't have to wait long for Vittorio's son Paolo to discover her standing by his father's corpse. In an unreasonable rage he accuses her of killing his father, or at least being complicit in his death. Corrado overhears this on the other side of the window he has escaped from, and somehow ...

When Paolo finds out Julia is from Nebraska, he asks his boys "Where the f*** is Nebraska?" A few seconds later he tells his boys to find Julia "and her f***ing Cornhusker boyfriend." However, if Paolo had never heard of Nebraska, it is unlikely he would have ever heard the term "cornhusker". See more »
My name is retribution. I'm your unsettled debt. My name is vengeance. Some would send me for you. My name is Corrado. There are two kinds of people in this world: those that abide by the law, and those that don't. For those that abide by the law, you have collection agencies, courts, jails, and rules. For those that don't, you have me.

I am a person who are oriented on movies, not soap operas or trash TV series and as well cheap action flicks from drive in cinemas. Actually I would offend the Art of Grindhouse, but I did not mean that kind of Movies, cheap and stupid ones.
I love gangster movies, and as a big fan of everything in that segment, I was very pleased when I saw that cast on this how would I call it, cinematic shame, have few of the actors from Sopranos, as well is Tom Sizemore and Tony Curran.
But, what ends with, is only few sequences I watched, either laughing or crying of such an amateurish and bad garbage work here.
I did not have stomach nor conscious to watch it more than few minutes, it is that bad.
The acting from pro actors are terrible, and you end with asking yourself how it is possible that they act so bad.
All of them.
What is the point here? To make trash movie? Or?
There are so many flaws I believe, but I watched it only few minutes, fast forwarding it in general (it was so unwatchable), so I believe there are many but did not catch them all.
The moment I stop watching it and pushing FF button was on the scene when famous Vito from Sopranos enter the table in coffee shop (the very start of the movie).
So if you want, watch it, and you will have your jaw wide open of such bad scene impression.
I did watched such a bad movies few times in my life, but I really did not expect some of the pros would act is such a garbage like this one. Still, don't want to offend some audience here who likes that kind of movies, we are all mostly subjective, but as a lover of quality cinema, I think those one will agree with me. Hell, I am not on that non stop shooting and nothing but no words, big muscles and destroy all around me fan, like Universal Soldier.
Maybe some will find this one great. I don't know.
