He later meets and falls for a charismatic burlesque dancer named Mercedes. Things take a turn for the worse when he gets entangled with her ex Chato and his gang after they get wind of the money. What follows is a high stakes cat and mouse game with everyone vying for the bag of money.

Solid Local Debut
17 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Scott Leisk and Mutt Productions pull off a gritty film with a Texas cast and crew that make Gang Money Run work as intended. Wesley Blake's portrayal of Jackson Schultz lets us know right away he is out of his element as his uncomfortable journey to the dark side evolves into a 24-hour fight to survive. Denise Downs shows a bit of diversity when at one moment she is a damsel in distress and in another standing up to the unpleasant father of her child who is a bato from the hood. Jesse Campos looks to have had lots of fun playing Chato. This gang leader is one whose side we want to be on a couple of times during the movie. The biggest surprise here were the nuggets of humor the flashed in and out of the movie. Overall, the shoestring budgeted film shot right here in San Antonio makes it a first-time worthy effort to those involved. It may not win an Oscar but its a slightly dark, albeit enjoyable, ride.
