"Ice Grill, USA" is a vivid yet stark examination of the pursuit of the American Dream. Set in the multicultural landscape of Atlantic City, NJ, IGU examines class struggle and the acquisition of status in a morally indifferent community.

As such, he finds himself forced to navigate the treacherous paths of the only two career options available: the black market pharmaceutical drug trade and casino hospitality services. Auggie is torn between the sales pitches of his drug dealer best friend and his corporate sellout brother, all the while struggling to adhere to the blue collar values championed by his father. Besieged on all sides by flashy high rollers like Ali Frazier, The Cowboy and Staten Island Eddie, colorful Cretans like T-Naps and Ken Carlisle, and good people who've lost their way, in "Ice Grill, USA" Auggie Logan sets out to make a name for himself in the city ...

Limited in both plot development and closure
9 July 2013 | by johnjacksonplumSee all my reviews

I had high hopes for this sleepy little indie when a friend of mine loant it to me after I saw it sitting on his coffee table, and boy was I let down.

Namely, because A- Everyt time some thing interesting happens they cut to black or it happens just out of the cameras range like what the heck! I wish the filmmakers had considering of the audience when they make this movie snoozfest that oh what could have been something worth watching if only they do the follow through where they show what happened.

In fairness to those involved i did turn it off before it was over but only because I was so getting mad at how they cut every time there is a fighting scenese or guns or action at all.

Also was it laughable the amount of drugs they show like come on this is scarface or what are you trying to do some gambler iwth the plastic genital goes and gets all this cocaine like tony montana or something.

save this one for a day where you have already scene everything else ever made.
