Moe Diamond is a New York City money launderer who wakes up with no memory and millions of dollars in stolen cash and drugs. He must soon scour the streets in search of answers while trying to dodge a crew of violent and crooked cops.
The 400 oz. gold bar shown in the beginning would cost over half a million US dollars. The amount of cash required would be much more than the two small bags shown. Each stack of 100 dollar bills is 10k. 50 of these would be needed. That would require a briefcase. See more »
Not too shabby coming from a novice filmmaker
This is novice writer, director and actor Malik Bader first writing attempt, and yes, it certainly needed tweaking in his screenplay, and the directing wasn't top notch, but for a low budget indie film, I actually enjoyed it - on a lazy Sunday popcorn flick. Casting was decent all around and everyone performed their characters quite well. The score was absent and subtle for the most part, but felt little overwhelming in some scenes. The cinematography was on point and I loved the old 80's themed setting. Certainly not worth all the 1's and 2's... based on the filmmakers repertoire and experience, as well as the low budget, it's well deserving of a 6.5 rounded up to a 7 due to the wannabe critics giving 1 and 2's. I do with the budget was a little bigger to have a seasoned screenwriter and assistant director, as that would've made this film great I'm still trying to find out if this was actually based on true events after reading the closing credits.
