A bunch of Bouncers and A god script.! I enjoyed myself.
1 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's another low-budget gangster suspense heist film. It starts off with the heist going wrong per usual, and you having to piece it together for the next hour and a half. And as usual everyone has their own secret motives for the heist, if there is an actual heist, or have you been duped as well as the hench-men. There was suspense there was comedy a lot of comedy. A guy rubbing one out at his desk while talking to his girlfriend. Rival factions sitting quietly at a booth, each one pointing guns at each-other. I can't think of any major plot holes, the script was better than the acting, the acting was well and good enough for a heist film. I really enjoyed it.

Most everybody in this film except the hired gun (the real actor) was a bouncer or in the security field. They were all from the package of hot-dogs on the back of the neck club. And there was a lot of gun disarming an take-away which were quick but not pretty, and are classic police tactics. There weren't the head butts and round-house kicks you see in todays movies.
