Storyline

Two pounds of pressure on a trigger pays really well... Ex special forces mercenary and now hardened criminal Vic, lives in a world of cons, double crosses, crooked cops, mob bosses and drug dealing crime lords. Playing by his own rules, Vic and his partner Frank work both sides of the street, caring only about where they can score and take down the most cash. After a dangerous shootout during a drug deal gone bad, Vic finds himself working for ruthless crime boss Paul Santo. Santo's being indicted for murder, and he enlists Vic and Frank to kill the three witnesses that will testify against him. Watching Vic's every move is Santo's strongest soldier, Ray, a stone cold killer, who would like nothing better than to whack Vic and Frank the moment his boss gives him the okay. As the Asian proverb says, "In the shadow of every crime is a woman" and that holds true for Vic as his grifter girlfriend Thea and Frank's ex, the exotic, sultry, Layla have their own agendas as they both try in ...

Did You Know?

Goofs

Several shooters are armed with single-action semiautomatic pistols. To fire this type of weapon, the hammer first needs to be cocked, either manually or by cycling the slide. However, in every scene in which these pistols are used to threaten victims, the hammers are down. This would make firing them impossible. See more »

Pointless
2 March 2007 | by thund3rboltSee all my reviews

Lots of killing, bad acting and terrible camera work. I lost count how many people got whacked in this flick after the first 3. At the end of this movie you will probably think "pointless" sums up this movie in a nutshell. I really couldn't find anything redeeming to make this movie worthwhile, even the plot stunk as it was way too easy to make the so called hits. Not even a total idiot would believe how easy it would be to find police protected witnesses or mob bosses. You know the least they could have done is find some good looking women or play some good theme music to make up for losing an hour and a half of your life watching it. I guess you could use this movie as a guideline of "what not to do while making a movie.
