Better than most shot on video films is worth taking the time to see
13 August 2008 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Small town cop in Jamaica returns to Kingston to fight organized crime through his effective but not always nice methods.

Normally I dislike shot on video dramas since they come off as ultra cheap an inept, this film however bucks the trend is a pretty good little crime drama. The action is quite good and has a realistic feel and the performances are there and not the typical sort of posturing one often finds in films of this sort. It all works. Best of all the video production actually adds an immediacy that most movies shot on film don't have. This is one to consider if it hits cable or you see it in blockbuster. Its not the be all and end all but its worth a shot if you're doing a double feature.
