| Mike Martinez is back to his old tricks
Well, actually he's not, and that's a good thing. Otherwise we'd be watching SPACEWORMS 2 and be all the more retarded for it.

In the tradition of such recent Hollywood epics as CRASH, HEAT and MAGNOLIA comes another gut-wrenching drama about inner racism, violence and human nature in the gritty city: MALEVOLENCE. Where does one start with a plot synopsis? This movie has it all, from gangsters to prison escapees to rogue doctors to dangerous gangs...yet it all makes sense in the end. The narrative takes more twists and turns than Quentin Tarantino running a pretzel factory.

Some limitations of low budget film-making come into play (inexperienced action editing and some horrific acting - a Martinez staple) but it ultimately ends up a fairly engrossing grim fairy tale that writes its own rules. Easily the best film in the Martinez cannon.
