Storyline

Eric is a photographer who lives back East. He is invited by his friend Danny to visit him in California. Before meeting Eric, Danny steals a million dollars from Carl, a drug dealer, who is also Eric's old partner. It seems that Eric and Carl had a parting of the ways when Eric's brother died of an overdose and Carl wasn't sympathetic. Now Danny's killed before he could tell anyone where the money is, so Carl tells Eric that he has to find it for him or else. And Eric is also trying to get reacquainted with Julie his old girlfriend, who is now involved with Carl. And Eric really doesn't know where Danny hid the money, so what's he going to do.

The gas station used in the very last scene is the same location as the one used in Cobra (1986). See more »

Goofs

Dennis Hopper's character gets shot in the left arm by a high-powered rifle--regardless, he is still able to have a fist fight with the much younger and stronger Michael Pare character. The wound also appears to stop bleeding and appears to be just a tear in his suit jacket during the fight. See more »

Just OK DTV
29 November 2018 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

An apparently direct-to-video film with a C-list cast (with the exception of Dennis Hopper). Production values were OK. Hopper plays more or less the same role as in Blue Velvet, i.e. the rich, menacing, villain. I won't go into the machinations of the plot, but will note that it wasn't terrible. Michael Pare was OK, and there was a cameo from Little Richard. The better acting (and aesthetics) came from the females, Tracy Tweed and especially Daphne Ashbrook. Overall, it was just OK.
