Storyline

Dave is a bad cop fighting a deadly heroin addiction while working a case deep inside the mafia. After killing numerous drug dealers and even undercover police officers for the mob, he is kept from his money for trivial reasons. As his drug problem gets worse, and Dave sinks deeper into a murderous lifestyle, he runs from the city to live with an old friend. But Dave can't hide for long, and he is soon lured back to town in a dangerous war to get his money back from the men that wronged him. Written by Anonymous

An unexpected yet pleasant surprise.
25 June 2008 | by chudwizerSee all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer for this indie film while surfing around on youtube, I honestly didn't think very much of it. It seemed like it was just another dumb action/thriller made by a bunch of bored teenagers with a video camera and a couple fake guns. However, when I actually saw it, I was completely blown away. The editing and scenery was stylish, the acting was very well done, and I found myself actually being completely absorbed and thrilled by the twisting and turning plot. Michael Fredianelli, a director/actor who I had never heard of before, was very into his role as a heroin addicted, homicidal, on-the-verge-of-loosing-it cop, and most of the supporting cast did very well too. My only two complaints are the audio (at times there was way to much background noise) and the ending (although it makes sense, I expected a smoother transition into the credits, not such a flat stop). An excellent film from a man who one day may be the next De Palma or Scorsese.
