The Grind
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FUN! This was a fun ride with twists, turns, and Action! Though the overall feel is an erotic Thriller this film has some great scenes! NOT, usual for the genre. Eric Bruskotter(Starship Troopers) Has this ridiculous dark edgy scene with eve Mauro. Another scene to Mention is between Gichi Gamba, Christine derosa, and Sarah SCott....CRAZY! I won't give details to spoil it...But, ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT! If you want interesting dark Characters Lots of foul Language Nudity and a fun ride...This is for you. Entertainment for the true indie types. Michael welch from Twilight is AWESOME in this! Tom Sizemore is Tom Sizemore- A true gem! I feel the whole cast is strong! Brent Briscoe (A simple Plan) even does a cameo!
