Storyline

Charlie Valentine (Raymond J. Barry), notorious crime boss/mobster, attempts to pull one last heist before slipping into "retirement". When the heist goes sour, however, he's forced to go on the run. Seeking help from his estranged son, Danny (Michael Weatherly), Valentine finds himself teaching his son the tricks of the trade. After an attempted scam on Danny's boss, and with a mobster on his tail, Valentine must decide whether or not he has enough goodness in himself to save his only son...a son who might die thanks to Valentine's mistakes.

Director tried too hard
30 April 2010 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

First of all I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, I am familiar with all of the players in this film and had heard great things about it. I saw the trailer from the Sacramento International Film Festival and was quite intrigued.

As a fiction writer I have to say the story was great, as a screenplay writer I have to say that it was great and it hit all its plot points right on. As an actor I would have to say that the players were at least a 7 out of 10, but direction defeated some. Where it starts to fall apart is with the editing, sound and direction. The cinematography had it's high points but seemed to be defeated by the direction, sound and FX.

At points it was obvious that the editor and Foley were rushed to get this finalized.

I came in with elated expectations and came away really angry about the final product. I say give it back to a real hard core editor/storyteller and see what comes out of their efforts.
