Brian is pursued by not only notorious drug lord Danny Perez (Danny Trejo) who desperately want his money back, and DEA Agent Rooker (Dolph Lundgren), but also a by the corrupt Sheriff Olson (Michael Pare) who will stop at nothing to get his hand on the new found fortune. On the run, Brian discovers the more he remembers the less he wants to know about who he really is.Written by
Another day and another low budget, straight to Pay TV, sub Tarantino action thriller with B movie actors.
Johnny Messner is Brian Barnes who comes around suffering a bullet wound, surrounded by dead bodies and dynamic titles telling you who all the main characters are.
Brian is a bad boy who has managed to get out alive but he needs to piece back his life together because he really had forgotten who he is and how he got into this mess.
Dolph Lundgren is the smart law agent who is investigating the killings. Micheal Pare is the crooked sheriff who has found a case full of money and is tempted to take it all. Danny Trejo is the ruthless crime lord who has lost a shed load of money and is looking to get it. Worse still his son bizarrely ran away to become a policeman and he was also killed in the incident. Trejo wants his son's death avenged.
Conveniently the various plot strands come together for contrived shoot outs as the bad guys drop one by one. Brian gets his memories back piecemeal and completes the jigsaw and Lundgren tries to stay one step ahead. The audience will have got a better grasp of where it's all heading in this poorly written film.
The film wants to be a hip smart thriller but the plotting is just too convenient. Having Vivicia Fox along with Trejo just reminds us too much of better Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez films.
