Pic is about four young guys who reunite at an ex-classmate's funeral. One mentions to the others inside information on a stock that is a guaranteed lock to make them instant millionaires. Unfortunately, the deal goes south along with their investment. Things go from bad to worse: one of them borrowed his share of the money from a mobster. Written by

B-movies can be fun, they also can be bad. Or they can be quite alright. And this for me was the latter. It wasn't really bad, but it didn't really give me that much. So while there were a few things that didn't quite work, I did like the overall chemistry. There were a couple of missed opportunities, considering the set up the movie could work with, but that doesn't mean it didn't get the things right it did use (eye of the beholder and all).
There is tension and there is decisions that do not make too much sense. There are also a couple too many forgettable characters thrown into the mix. And there are the (sometimes) foreseeable twists and turns in the story and character development ... Does that sound enticing to you?
