Storyline

Law student and all round good guy, Harper, suspects that his scheming step-father, Vincent, is responsible for the car crash that sent his mother into a coma. Drowning his sorrows one evening in a seedy L.A whiskey bar, Harper is interrupted by a tough looking redneck called Johnny Ray who offers to 'take care' of his step-dad for the cool sum of US$20,000. Angry, intent on revenge and fuelled by alcohol, Harper agrees to the deal and spends the rest of his evening downing shots with Johnny Ray. The next morning, Harper awakes to the mother of all hangovers with hazy memory of the previous night's events. Answering a knock at the front door, he is surprised to find Johnny Ray and his beautiful but distant girlfriend, Cherry, ready and waiting to drive to Vegas to kill Vincent. Harper's claims that he was drunk and didn't know what he was doing mean nothing to Johnny Ray who is more threatening than ever in the cold light of day.

Much better than expected!
23 January 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Much better than expected!

I was really not expecting much with no name actors (I didn't recognize any one) and no name director and writer Christopher Smith, but I was very pleasantly surprised!

All the actors were spot on, maybe a little overboard in some instances but it played well with the directing which was actually very impressive for a director and writer I never heard of!

Yes there were a few plot holes but for a 'B' or less movie, everything else was exceptional!

Well done Christopher Smith and to the entire cast for a great thrill ride!
