Gunz (Dylan Duffus) is thrust into a world of excitement when he joins the TIC crew. The crew, led by the ruthless Hoodz (Scorcher), goes from low level weed peddling to full on armed robberies within a fortnight. Their new found infamy affords them a life of guns, drugs, and girls but they also catch the attention of the police and a rival gang. To make matters worse they have been infiltrated by an undercover police officer. Does he have "THE INTENT" to remain a criminal or abide by his oath to the force?
Good intentions do not always make a good movie. The action part of the movie does sort of work. They also know how to cut/edit effectively. But one of the major issues the movies has is its characters/actors. While I don't want to be to quick to judge the actors based on one performance, it is safe to say that the script does not give them anything or rather really much to play with and develop a character.
It feels like they knew what they wanted to do and the characters do feel "real", but they are not accessible to the viewer. So it is a shame and almost a waste. The movie might have had more potential if it took more notes from the movies it does try to copy.
