Storyline

After budget cuts and personal demons forced him off the streets of San Pedro, Detective Nick Terry's beat became the classroom, where he patrols the minds of the people in his beloved hometown. A less intense schedule allows Nick to enjoy all the things he loves: watching the surf with his piñata-shredding dog Peakins, getting stoned, mustering up the courage to ask out a beautiful local, getting stoned and hanging out at the Chowder barge with Spice, his Jamaican friend. And getting stoned. But when a mysterious woman washes up on the shore at Sunken City, Nick is called back to the beat where his calm, cool life becomes even more dazed and confused.

A fun, light hearted movie
14 May 2014 | by tompleskoSee all my reviews

Good acting, and a good plot make this a must watch film. I think San Pedro is the perfect place for the location, since it really is one of the last cities in LA with a bit of the old west "live and let live" mentality. The diverse people, and locales of the city were perfectly blended in this film to give the viewer a solid eclectic experience. This movie really shows that an Indie movie can still pull off a high quality production.

The main character is easy to identify with, especially for those who ever longed for simpler, and more care free days. There is light hearted humor throughout the film, which do not seem overly forced, or amateurish as is the case with many of the Indie flicks. The creators of the film also seem to genuinely appreciate the diversity that comes with living in San Pedro, which is a unique perspective of this region of Los Angles. The film takes you from the rugged coast lines to the classical old style downtown, which looks like it could have been something out of a 1940's mobster movie.

If I had to find anything at all wrong with the film, I would only have a small nit about how the ending was tied together. While everything made sense, a few bits of information that was put together at the end were a bit too subtle to catch. The information maybe in there, but it may take a sharp eye to catch it.
