THE NIGHT CREW centers on a group of hard up bounty hunters who must survive the night in a desert motel against a horde of savage border runners. They soon realize that their fugitive, a mysterious Chinese woman, is much more than she lets on. Written by
A girl is on the run from someone or something. The bad guys catch up with her but just at that moment another group appears and rescues her.
This group is made up of bounty-hunters and grabbing her is their job. The main guy is Wade, his sidekick is Rose and there are two more guys.
This girl though is something else, she's not appreciative at all, doesn't have anything to say. At some point she escapes from these guys. In the meantime we learn that her captor is the big bad drug mobster around: Danny Trejo, who else. He's into young girls and wants to girl back at all costs.
The girl hides in some abandoned motel. Our bounty-hunters find her and decide to wait for Trejo's gang to show up. Now we learn that this girl does have something special. Somehow she knows stuff about our guys that she couldn't have known. At this point we get to hear all the relationship gossip among the group for some reason until the bad guys show up and the shootout ensues. Eventually we learn what's going on with the girl and it's a neat twist.
The Night Crew is a B-action movie that aspires to be a bit more than just that, but doesn't really succeed. Casting is strong with Goss, Trejo, Faulhaber. Sloan does a great job but his character doesn't get much camera-time unfortunately. The action is decent, direction is good, the writing could be better. The movie looks good, too. The problem is that there isn't really much of a central character to root for and for no good reason they decided to film the main part of this movie at night, which doesn't work all that well with action movies. The character of the girl, instead of being fascinating is instead somewhat annoying. I did appreciate the sexual tension between her and Rose though. Overall, the concept is pretty good but the script and execution needed more work.
