Storyline

When Ty's mother dies, he leaves Barstow for the coast, where his mother grew up and where the beach gives him solace. He gets work, makes friends with some local guys, and falls for Sandy, the sister of one of them. Without warning, Ty's hard-edged father, his profane uncle, and his two low-life half-brothers show up, needing a place to hide from the cops for awhile. Ty wants them gone, but his stubborn and ornery family checks into the local motel. Things get worse when the low-life brothers sexually assault Sandy. Her brother and his pals reply with fists. Out come guns and knives, and a showdown in the sand is guaranteed. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hard family invade sleepy beach village
3 October 2001 | by andertonmarkSee all my reviews

The ONLY reason I bothered with this at all is because of Kari Wuhrer, who is one of the sexiest women in the movies today. Unfortunately despite the bad language, drugs, violence and low budget effort of the film, it was so low budget they could not even afford for her to have partial nudity...

Dennis Leary is actually the films strongest character, and delivers his lines with the same larconic smirking as in everything else he has been in.

The story is generated in the post Pulp Fiction era, but lacks any of the character building, or intelligent script writing of a Tarantino.

For all that, it is a good "pass the time" film for an insomniac sometime after midnight. There is a gradual escalation of hostilities between the beach bums and the hard nosed family, with Tyler caught in the middle.

There are reflections of male bull headed behaviour, together with laddish immaturity, as well as camaraderie and pride.

All in all, it is a film that paints every bad aspect of 20th century man into one film.
