Storyline

Avery Paul, a former professional boxer, has been drifting since his release from prison, he convicted on trumped up charges of smuggling. That conviction led to him losing his boxing license. In addition to his long-shore work on the Halifax docks, he supplements his meager income by illegal street fights, which are posted online. It is through one of those videos that he comes to the attention of a woman named Ava, who hires him to retrieve by what will need to be by clandestine and forceable means her runaway half-sister Jan, a drug addict living with her boyfriend Tal and his drug dealer partner Donny in a crack house, and return her to her parents. The $20,000 fee, Ava's parents' life savings, would be sufficient for Avery truly to get back on his feet and resume his boxing career. Avery is able to infiltrate the crack house as a supposed junkie and abduct Jan, who is not a willing kidnappee in her constant need to get a fix.

Violent little Canadian indie
18 April 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Avery Paul (Glen Gould) is a street fighter and an ex-con. One day, he's approach by Ava. She hires him to abduct drug-addicted Jan (Amanda Crew) for $20k from her criminal gang and deliver her back to her family. When he takes her, he demands more money but then there is more to her story.

This is definitely a small Canadian indie with the prerequisite lack of budget. That's not that big of a deal. It actually works well with the gritty drug scene. Glen Gould is not a notable name nor does he have a big screen presence. However he does have a little bit of Bronson in him, and this has a bit of that grimy low-life Death Wish vibe. Then the movie gets more violent after the turn. That's when a more experienced director could get better looking shots. Michael Melski doesn't have the skills yet or the style. However there is an edginess to this low budget indie.
