Vincent (Emile Hirsch) rescues Roxxy (Zoë Kravitz) from being attacked. She reveals that she's in trouble after her brother's murder. Vincent is reluctantly helping his brother JC (Emory Cohen) start his own garage. JC's girlfriend Kate (Zoey Deutch) helps Roxxy get a job at the bar. JC is unable to let go of violence and Roxxy's trouble follows her.
This is a violent crime drama. With a couple of intriguing actors, this seems set for an interesting movie. In the end, the writing is not up to the job and the directing has limitations. It needs to get to the conflict sooner. There are too many filler scenes especially in the first act. The dialogue is weak. Hirsch and Kravitz could have been great but they are allowed to be static. The violence is a little shocking at first but it is nowhere enough to save this.
