The late Irish hero fireman's (Lefty) charming son William M. "Billy" Dylan (25) is elected as independent, youngest Massachusettes state representative. He joins the Democrats, Congress seat Beacon Hill's legendary rooster, House speaker Charles T. "Chick" Mudoon, who trusts the customary campaign debt check will reel the rookie in as another meek party soldier. However the naive, naturally noble new boy, who doesn't hesitate to single-handedly fight off two skinhead gay-bashers, has and follows his own conscience. He defeats Muldoon's dodgy attempts to prevent a congressional committee investigating state police school cadet abuse, which would compromise his deputy, majority leader Spanky Reardon. It seems Muldoon's revenged when Dylan gets framed for the alleged violent abuse of a two-faced congressional aid. However, there's a more devious, ambitious plot behind two abuse cases and a staged corrupt payment for a memorial hospital wing. Written by KGF Vissers

Terrible, terrible, terrible
3 May 2016 | by angrymaynardmomSee all my reviews

Waste of time. Feel bad for the actors, and anyone who spent time on this movie. Its clichéd, bad fight scene, poor set up of scenes, and the dialogue is terrible. It was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen back in 2004. Some movies are so bad they're good. This movie is so bad its bad. I can't believe money was spent on it. Thankfully this appears to be the last time the director made a film. It could have been better with a re-write, a re-shoot, and a new director. I wasted a couple of hours of my life watching this, and I will never get it back. This should be used at film schools on how not to make a film. I know the director was passionate about it, but was a total pile of stink. It happens. Hopefully the people who made this film have put this behind them. Its a sad thought that so many helped to make such a piece of garbage. Save yourself the trouble, and avoid ever seeing this film.
