Trivia

Craig Hamann's friend and former co-worker at Video Archives, Roger Avary, acted as a "producer-in-name-only" on the film. He had no creative input or involvement; his name was only attached to help his friend get meetings with potential financiers. After acquiring the distribution rights, Imperial Entertainment used his name to advertise the film as coming from "the Academy Award winning writer of Pulp Fiction (1994)", thus tricking consumers into thinking the movie was 1) from Quentin Tarantino and 2) actually written by the writer of Pulp Fiction. Both Craig Hamann and Roger Avary were displeased about this. See more »

A intense, often unpredictable thriller.
30 March 2005 | by carlmckieSee all my reviews

Being an old movie, you could get this title for quite cheap. I recommend you go out and buy it, if you are into thrillers. The plot is very well written, with lots of twists and strange happenings throughout the movie. Some of the camera pans can seem to be a bit below par at times, but other than this, the movie deserves a thumbs up.

Mid way through the movie, you will not know what is going on with some of the characters, but all is revealed at the end. The ending to the film is quite good, but it leaves you wanting more. I think this is what the director wanted people to think.

Without a doubt, in my opinion Boogie Boy deserves a well earned 8/10.
