After thirty years in prison, ex-con Ronnie (Dennis Hopper) recruits his grandson to exact revenge on Darryl (Fred Ward), the cop who put him behind bars. Standing in their way is Ronnie's son, whom Darryl raised.
It is out of season and the temporary employee Pierre of an amusement park seaside has all his savings stolen by the crook Simeon Guant, a friend of his girlfriend Kelly Phillips. Kelly is daughter of the owner of the park, Michael Philipps, who is married with Eileen Phillips. Eileen cheats her husband with Simeon, and they plot to kill Michael simulating a burglary and get his life insurance. Pierre, without any money, associates to the owner of a bar, the former thief Harry Barlow, who teaches him how to burglar. The reunion of these six characters has no happy ending.Written by

Pierre wants to be a thief- Dennis Hopper takes him under his wing with the backdrop of an out of season amusement park as their home base. There are a few moments that are OK but for the most part the acting is flat and the story very dull. This is a movie that is severely lacking in a lot of elements and it will leave you wanting the time you spent watching it back. Dennis Hopper plays a better role than usual, but that's only because his usual level of acting lately is so poor. So when he plays an average role it seems like a big deal these days. Bottom line, miss this movie it is dumb and flat. The most appealing thing in this film is the villain, who I wound up rooting for because I was sick of the dumb characters.
