Summary: Angel is released from prison and teams up with his old friend Rich, who is selling illegal firearms. Rich kills a rival outside a nightclub, and with Angel tortures and kills another rival. The police are on the trail and central to their investigation is a heavy duty Smith & Wesson, said by Rich to be the largest hand gun in the world. Later we find that Angel is a police informer and although he gives the feds a false trail, later tells them where a maor meet is to take place where Rich is to buy some top of the market fire-arms. As confrontation approaches how will it all pan out?

Content: There is one sex scene with almost nudity. Some drinking and smoking – well there is a nightclub scene. People are shot down outside the nightclub. Angel and Rich meet and the reason for their frintship established. The police have meetings in the station. A man is tortured and then shot. Various firearms are puchased and used in testing. People sit about in Rich’s club and talk in some sort of code – so it seems.

A View: I think this film has received the lowest IMDb rating that I have seen, and it is my lowest rating ever. It has nothing to recommend it lacking a proper plot understandable dialogue or decent actors. Its only positive is Annalynne McCord who smoulders effectively. And it is very short. Even so do not waste your one hour and 22 minutes on it.

I have reviewed a lot of films involving extensive gunfire on this blog. They can be variable but here are three that I liked: Dredd, Bird on a Wire and the recent Bullet Train.
