so tacky...
5 April 2004 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

Undistinguished thriller filmed in Las Vegas is a hard-up, shabby affair, but diverting in a curious way tantamount to watching hippos mate. A young dance choreographer in alcoholism recovery comes home from work one afternoon to find that his drug dealing roommate and entourage have been brutally massacred. Soon, he is being threatened by a local gangster demanding the hand-over of some documents he knows nothing about. There's a fish-eyed love story in play as well, and some intermittent dance numbers which are...um...not exactly "Fosse".

A goodly amount of gun violence, cheesy action scenes, and a mild dosage of nudity bring small sparks to this otherwise banaustic endeavor...not recommended, but trash movie lovers may find a glint of redeeming value here.

3.5/10
