Storyline

Hollywood action film star Rafe Stoker has sunk $130,000 of his own money into his own production, but can't find legitimate financing to complete the film. His mob-connected investor demands an exorbitant amount of collateral and a guarantee that Rafe hand over a commercially acceptable film in 4 weeks, then hires a gang of psycho bikers to sabotage the picture to ensure he collects Stoker's collateral. As if a cranky local cop and bad weather didn't slow production enough, Crazy Harvey decides to take Rafe out of the picture after Rafe shows him up once too often.

Is It Over Yet?
7 December 2006 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm sorry. I don't care. The people in this film are tiresome and childish. The whole premise is ridiculous. The acting is bad. There is no real suspense. Everything about it is so unbelievable that it looks like whatever popped into someone's head was OK. I know. Money is power. Let's take the guy for everything he is worth. When push comes to shove, turn down the offer you get for help, even though you could then pay it back. The bad guys don't seem to have much reason; they're just bad. If vengeance is yours, don't get into the game. I appreciate that this wasn't an effort to make "Gone With The Wind," but it's a parody on exactly what it is trying to do. And not a very clever one. But it was their money.
