A flimsy showcase for someone who could have been a great leading man
17 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Malloy (Ray Liotta) was a petty criminal who was supposed to assist his friend Mack (Dominic Purcell) in holding up some drug dealers and selling their product back to them, only to get high on coke and crash his car, leaving his friend to get set up by an undercover cop. Years later, he's settled down with a decent woman who he's looking to marry, whilst contending with some heart problems, only for his old friend to show back up on the scene and frame him for involvement in a convenience store hold up where two people were killed, using this to blackmail him and control him like a dog.

Ray Liotta is a curious figure. A notably intense actor, favoured for more psychotic roles, somehow he never managed to succeed as a leading man, always more prominent in supporting roles, even in his most well known films. There's no doubt he had huge potential as the main star, and it's almost surely just down to picking bad or unsuited scripts that got him in trouble, but alas here he is in this disposable piece of work, the latest in what's become a very long line of straight to DVD non-entities.

Filmed and set in Australia, the low budget fails to hide away in this by the numbers pot boiler, predictable and formulaic through out with very little to make it stand out as a film on it's own. Liotta looks his age now, and it's clear had this been a bigger studio production it would have gone to someone at least twenty years younger. The role almost doesn't suit him. It's mercifully short, but no less a plodding time waster than it is. **
