Storyline

The Ropes is an inside look into the hilarious, yet explosive world of nightclub bouncing. The series follows the charismatic young Martin, who hustles his way into a job as a bouncer only to be taken under the wing of Big Vic, the club's legendary head bouncer who prides himself on being the epitome of a fighter and ladies man. But soon, Martin is lured into the nefarious underworld by Les, another bouncer with his own crooked outlook. It's then that Martin must wrestle with his head and heart as he navigates a world shaped by bribes, beautiful women, but most importantly brotherhood. Written by The Ropes Production

great online TV!
9 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just happened upon this on 'Crackle.com' and I really am glad I did. Fast paced, slick action and well-acted for a series made of short web episodes! good believable casting, Brian Hooks and Ryan Ahern are the standouts in my opinion, along with a cameo by none other than Tyrese Gibson. All of the characters seem to belong in the world of over-the-top, anything goes nightlife. I really hope there's a season two! I give it eight out of ten only because it's incredibly dark, as in little light, lots of shadow and late night imagery. Definitely worth seeing. I've seen other more obscure work from Vin Diesel, like 'Multi-Facial' and 'Strays' and in each case he shows real skills.
