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.
