Don’t mess in your own nest
From storyboarding big films such as Bulletproof Monk, Constantine, I Am Legend and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Jay Martin writes and directs his first feature and he brings us a Pulp Fiction style story, flipping back and forth through time as the story unfolds.
08:30 Beckmore bank at 3013, three men bust in brandishing guns and demanding the keys to the safe, but the manager Pete (Joel Murray, God Bless America) seems to recognise one of the men. “Sam” (Luke Mitchell, H20: Just Add Water) a young man that had high hopes of becoming a football star, but his career was cut short and now he scrapes a living working lathes while his pregnant girlfriend Kate (Leven Rambin, Chasing Mavericks) waits tables in a local diner.
But when he gets laid off he turns to his brother Mike (Jason Ritter, The Steps)
Sam along with his long time friend Owen (Zane Holtz, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) go around all the posh parties selling dope but some of their customers are after E’s a completely different thing. This is where Mikes up-town connection Doug (Chris Soldevilla, The Wedding Pact) who gives them $65,000 worth of pure M.D.A.
On the way back home Owen panics as a cop car follows them onto a gas station forecourt, he grabs the drugs and dashes for the restroom and flushes them down the toilet. This where their problems really start as Doug isn’t a very nice man and he gives them 48 hours to find the money.
Where can three hapless men find that sort of money. This is a tale of if you are going to do something keep your mouth shut until it is done and “Don’t Get Caught”.
Because of his storyboarding past all the camera shots are spot on but some are a little clichéd, still a fair romp.
As Owen says.
“Never underestimate a Mall cop!”
