*Hottie Jesse Metcalfe packs heat in this sexy action-thriller! — Tristan Price (Jesse Metcalfe) has everything: money, privilege, loving parents (Erin Gray, John Bennet Perry), a beautiful girlfriend (Monica Keena), and a ... more »bright future. But he has always had a need for something more, something wilder. Enter Sebastian Cole (Corey Large), a handsome, charismatic, ruthless coke dealer with a taste for fast cars, fast women, rapid-fire weapons...and revenge. Soon, Tristan will be up to his eyeballs in a seedy underworld of drugs, sex and violence before he has a clue that his new best friend is, in reality, his worst enemy!« less
This started out real strong but slow to almost a fizzle. Jesse Metcalfe did not disappoint but Chase Crawford needs to stop acting since he seems to add to the fizz of movies and brings the ratings down.
A SURPRISING RELEASE

"I recently saw this film in Los Angeles at a screening there when I was visiting a friend and was surprised that I had not heard more about it. Good film. Well Made and full of hotties. Natalie Kelly is smoking in this. She oozes Sex when she is on screen. Jesse Metcalf gives a great performance along side Johnny Messner (WHO IS CRAZY IN THIS), Corrupt, Chase Crawford, Vinnie Jones, Lochlyn Munro, and Corey Large. The cast is great, the acting is good, and the film is interesting in its style, plot and execution. Again the girls were hot!!!
I dug the score and source music in the film. It overall has a very fresh and young vibe to it. Would recommend it to those looking for something to caters to that Fast and Furious crowd. Good flick."

"Wow!!!! Where did this film come from??? It was so cool and I never heard of it before!
Really fun, energetic movie about a guy who gets in with the wrong crowd and things get really out-of-control.
Does anyone remember that movie BAD INFLUENCE with James Spader and Rob Lowe? This is that kind of movie with a really cool modern day twist. Smoking hot girls, action and a cool story makes this a really fun ride."
Kick A** Action and Hot Chicks!!

"This is definitely one to check out if you love action, sex and drugs! The chicks in this film are hot and there is enough action around the dramatic plot to keep you interested. A must see in my book! Loaded"
An after school special, but worse...

"Wow. This movie is horrible. Guy goes to strip club meets stripper, smokes pot, and a week later he is addicted to coke, has pretty much dropped out of law school, is cheating on his girl and is pulling guns on people. Yeah. Ok. He does coke 3 times yet he goes through withdrawals in jail. Really?
The chicks are ok, but not enough to save the rest of the movie. If you want to see a guy in a bowling shirt acting like a wanna be gangster then this is your movie. This would fit better as a Lifetime network movie of the week... I bet my Mom would love this movie."

"LOADED is a terrible film. Filled with despicable characters who do ludicrous things, all ninety minutes of this clunker fail to inspire anything but boredom and possibly confusion.
The plot follows the young, wealthy, handsome, and over-priviledged Tristan Price (even his name is cool!). Due to a hazy, drug-induced tragedy during his high school years, Tristan has been put under house arrest by his dad. Six years later, during his birthday, he's allowed one night out with his buddies. The party gets a little out of hand, Tristan gets a little caught up in all of the "fun," and his buddies (let's call them Plot Contrivances) disappear for the rest of the movie, while Tristan does all kinds of stupid and illegal things for no apparant reason whatsoever.
LOADED is filled with the kind of jittery and over-exposed shots that you're more likely to find in low-rent music videos. In this case, they are meant to convey Tristan's struggle with the drugs that surround him and the steadily chaotic life that he finds himself living. The movie trumpets a lame duck attitude of Drugs-Are-Cool-And-Also-Dangerous, a paradox that makes the art-wrecked cinematography all the more unbearable.
That's not the least of this film's problems. Aside from Erin Gray, who plays Tristan's mother, the entire cast of this film fails to make any impression beyond pure boredom. Jesse Metcalfe's Tristan is particularly annoying, although that may just be because he's the main character. His slide into delinquency is so easy and so sudden, it makes one wonder if he doesn't have some kind of mental disorder. The story tries to make the father out as some kind of demanding czar, but considering how Tristan immediately turns to drugs and guns the moment he is let out of the house, the father's knee-jerk paranoia doesn't seem so misplaced. As it is, Tristan is only likable inasmuch as you are willing to believe that he is simply a put-upon idiot.
Tristan is swayed by the schmoozy charms of a drug dealer named Sebastian. Played by Corey Large (who also co-wrote the film), Sebastian is smug, distant, and says all of his lines as if he is at the script's first read-through. He's meant to be charming and absorbing, but the only fascinating thing about him is how tiny his face is in comparison to his head. His world of cocaine and bullets is no different than any other low-budget dreck that tries to make killing people exciting, with the possible exception that it is conspicuously devoid of any graphic violence or nudity. Great pains are taken to make it obvious that there's more to Sebastian than meets the eye, but unless the viewer is as stupid as Tristan, there are no surprises to be found here, and certainly no fun.
