| Tour of LA with action
For a movie made on a budget this film is great fun. You get a great tour of all the famous sites in the LA area rapped around a clever story line that delivers quite a few laughs. The B movie feel really adds to the comedy while the serious story line keeps you watching. Athena Demos was excellent and I hope she keeps the red wig. The other standouts in the movie were Boris and Ilya Gorovatsky. Their lines were always well delivered and they were both very funny. The gun play in the film looked great however the pyro effect of the exploding car wasn't the best, but this also added to the B movie feel.

The movie includes many shots from Hollywood, Santa Monica, Malibu Lake, and the Thousand Oaks area. If you have ever lived in the LA area this film is a must see.
