Storyline

Ty's pal J.J. frames him in a murder and cocaine theft in Hong Kong in 1992. Ty's wife Rachel may be in on the con, so, when Ty gets early release from prison as a gesture of good will from the city's new Mainland government, he doesn't bother to look her up. But she finds him in Southern California to warn him that J.J. wants him dead. Whack J.J. first, she tells Ty, so he heads for Manila where J.J. runs a lucrative business under the cover of exporting tropical fish. But what is that business and who's pulling the strings? With the help of Inez, a young Filipina prostitute, Ty gets to the heart of the matter even after Inez no longer has the stomach to pursue the guilty ones. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

one of the worst ever
29 June 2001 | by prime_boy27See all my reviews

Whatever happened to Richard Grieco? I like him a lot as Michael Corbin the HS french class dropout who mistakenly took the identity of a spy in "Teen Agent". Why did he accept a movie like this?

The story is anemic, the actors are bad and the photography is bland. There's even the scene where Joyce Jimenez was shown with her body cut in half because the villains sell body organs for a living. Yuck!!

I think "Vital Parts" suck in every way. 3/10 rating
