Bad guys do a good job of trying to save this bad film .......
31 October 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

'Cartel" is a severely disjointed attempt to tell a tale of revenge. It's greatest short coming is that the film tries to do way too much with the totally non-believable script, and the mostly bad acting doesn't help either. Two strong villainous performances from Don Stroud and Gregory Scott-Cummings almost save the day, but not quite. You get at least a bunch of car chases and gratuitous explosions, brief nudity, and a totally wasted performance by William Smith. In summary, a fair amount of action and the presence of Stroud and Scott-Cummings cannot overcome a dreadful performance by the female lead, Crystal Carson, and a seriously flawed script. - MERK
