For Martin Palado, the self-made millionaire, failure is not an option. Since his retirement, Martin's mind has led him to dark obsessions. Posing as a bum, he panhandles on the streets of Denver. When Martin fails at begging, he falls back on his old habit of hiring Jackson Hash to remove his competition. Jackson carries his reputation as a brutal killer proudly. If the money is right, no life is too sacred. After one particularly bloody hit, Jackson has an epiphany about his life. He reforms himself, opening his own business, where he befriends Johnny Stockman and is invited to join his weekly craps game. During the game, Jackson realizes that his life hasn't really come clean, and all their lives are changed forever.Written by
I saw this film at a recent screening in Denver. I came in with an open mind, but knowing it was an independent, low budget film, honestly my expectations were much lower than if I were seeing a Hollywood Blockbuster...
HOWEVER - I found myself really getting into the story and relating to the characters. I enjoyed the film and would recommend it to my friends. The action scenes were good and there were plenty of plot twists to make it interesting. The concept of the rich guy's plan was original and intriguing. My only critique is that the alley scene behind the club was disappointingly gratuitous. Other than that, I was pleasantly surprised.
Go check it out - it's worth taking a look. Given more budget I think this film could be really big.
