Good to Go (aka Short Fuse) is a snoozer. I rented it a few years ago because I was lured in by the cover art. The cover made it look like a decent action flick-cops, guns, helicopters, etc.. However, it moves at a snail's pace and had no intelligible plot whatsoever. I feel it was a showcase for the "go-go" music contained within and nothing else. Don't get suckered in; ignore this movie.
