Storyline

Tommy and Gary are criminals engaging in grand thefts in order to make ends meet. They are opportunists and have no fear. After a routine robbery goes awry, the friends are forced to put their criminal activity behind them. As Tommy's relationship flourishes with his new girlfriend Scarlet, his economic hardships become obvious. Scarlet soon proposes a notion that will make all their money troubles vanish - the heist of a half a million dollar painting. With just a short window of opportunity, Tommy and Gary design an ambitious plan, one that will ultimately determine their fate. Written by Anonymous

Impressive Character-Driven Action Drama
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this film screen at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival in LA this year, and even got to meet the incredibly talented director and lead actors. Full of action and plot twists with fantastic acting from everyone, especially Richard Manriquez who plays Tommy's partner in crime, Gary. Ken Davitian (Borat) also plays a vital character. Every single element of this film was incredibly well-done. It's beautiful and polished with high production quality, action, good characters and a well-written story. There were certain story elements that I felt were a bit of a stretch, certain things that didn't seem realistic.

If anything could have been better, it would be some of the smaller details of the story and the dialogue. It's more of a drama than an action film which makes it a bit more difficult to market, but it's definitely worth watching and never feels slow or too long. Great acting, natural and real characters, and some absolutely gorgeous bigger-than-life shots. Prince said that shooting took place over the course of about six months, but the project was in the works for nearly two years from script to final cut, and done on a very modest budget considering the result. Very very impressive, definitely check this one out. Won Best Production Design, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, and People's Choice Nominee at HRIFF.
