| Cool, violent indie flick...only wish they better production value.
I saw this movie about a month ago at the Magnolia Theater in Dallas, Texas and was quite impressed. Obviously shot with no money on digital video and an amatuer cast, it is effective none the less. The plot was a little merky at first. Something about a drug addicted son ripping his criminal father off, then his father putting a hit on the son. While it reminded me of At Close Range with Christopher Walken, it's the storytelling and some pretty good acting that makes it stand out. The movie becomes stronger and stronger as it goes on from one violent scene to the next. The son gets his girlfriend pregnant, pulls a nasty drug house robbery, escapes his father's attempted hit, and finally gets his "revenge". Sounds like a bit much, but it's pulled off with a good amount of flare and entertainment that it makes it one of the best no budget indies I've seen. It's got the cojones in the drama and action that most small productions shy away from. All it needs is a little better production value, a little sharper story line & script, and bingo...these guys are there. I recommend this just for the introduction of the potential talent involved.
