Storyline

Billy Forsetti has grown up poor, desperate and angry. His best friend, Mikey, has taught him how to steal and fight his way through life. Add a couple of friends, and introduce the world of carjacking-amateurs seeking thrills and cash-it all leads to an intoxicating time. But when Mikey and Billy's values collide over where to draw the line, Mikey explodes and Billy finds himself estranged and wanting to move on. Billy takes up with a beautiful girl and finds a more promising life. But when a carjacking goes wrong, his past becomes a shadow that darkens and threatens his future. Mistrust, jealousy and fear will chase Billy down a rabbit hole that might leave him no way out.

Had potential , could have been better
18 July 2018 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

I don't think this movie deserves all the very negative reviews it is receiving. The acting by Blake Jenner is pretty outstanding and Grant Harvey is also excellent. In this film about completely lost lower class hoodlums most of the roles are actually very well cast. There are some very well done, gritty, realistic and painful scenes. The problem is the screenplay by Mr Jenner really needed work and like so many mediocre movies nowadays, there needed to be more dialogue and less filler scenes, people dancing, walking and lying around. The settings were perfect, but the cutting back and forth from past to present and the scenes shown literally in reverse just came across as gimmicky. Taken as a whole, the movie though is tragically realistic on most points and what saved it for me were the very fine performances from most of the cast.
