TROPHY tells the story of men's obsession with power and how far they will go to claim the "PRIZE". Two rival gangs in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, led by Gino (Robert Miano) and Cole (Michael Madsen), are vying for control. Danny (Michael Masini), an LAPD undercover police detective, goes deep into gangland to infiltrate one gang to bring down both. Along the way, he becomes entangled with the beautiful and seductive Angela (Ali Costello), whose relationship with her husband Jake and mob leader Gino makes her the focal point of an intoxicating romantic equation-with deadly consequences. Her dream is to escape the wrath of evil abusive men, and find the love she never knew but always dreamed of. Even in the underworld, sometimes dreams do come true even when it all seems impossible Written by Anonymous

Excellent Film
9 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. It had great storyline, action, wonderful acting, all under the expert direction of Dan Gillin. A thoroughly enjoyable film, which broke away from many stereotypes. The film also had a great look to the film. I highly recommend Beyond The Trophy to all film-goers. The film shows comprehensive of a rough subject manner. And accomplishes it with flair, style and also much substance. See It!!! I, myself, Craig Zucchero, had a nice part in it as the Swat Team Leader, and I have had excellent parts in many mainstream films and television, and working with Dan was a pleasure. This film is very entertaining as well as compelling to watch. In order to understand, you must see this film. Hey, I know what I'm talking about. I have worked on many films and this one really rocked and rolled!!! Thank You!!
