"My freind was a fan of Carmine Giovinazzo, and although he's good, the direction and storyline of this movie just seemed impossible to work with... I understand that Eric Schwab is a begining director / writer , but gosh... I mean, you'd think other people would watch the dailys and recomend a few things! Perhaps a plot would help! I'm just upset that my freind actually bought this DVD from Amazon...."
This is no diamond in the rough...

"I'm not sure why I decided to buy this flick - probably the low price and the positive reviews.It turned out to be a mistake.This movie is awful. Although I like "B" movies and direct-to-video titles that are fun to watch, either because of a good storyline or great actors, this movie has none of those things. The story is weak, the acting is uninspired, and the direction is atrocious.Those reviews saying this movie is awesome have to be shills - no way. AVOID."

"Stupid criminals hook up with stupid record exec who thinks he can use them to further his evil plans to create a mall?er ?entertainment center? by ousting a nice old guy from his variety store. Due to a bribe sting, some very stupid FBI agents instigate a shoot out in a crowed club, causing the death of untold innocent bystanders. I?ve learned one thing from all of this: The FBI REALLY HATES SHOPPING MALLS.The true break out in this film is Vincent Ventresca. He has the ability to take any role make it fascinating. He?s intelligent thought in motion. I?d watch this guy read the phone book. Five Stars for Ventresca!"
Much better than given credit for.

"I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by how good this movie was. The characters had just enough quirk to make them interesting, especially Vincent Ventresca as Marshal, who stole the show during his on-screen time.My only problem with this movie was that there were times were things were progressing way too fast. This is most prevalent in the begining of the movie. But as soon as the introductions are over, the flow begins to fall into place nicely.I recomend this movie for those looking for an interesting indepenent film starring some great, up and coming actors."
