This ghetto blaster about lethal one-upmanship unloads a heap of meaningless action on unwary viewers. Ambitious crooks Bronco (James Parris) and Simon (Travis Johnson) who richly deserves his nickname, "Psycho Si" are set up to get killed during a stolen-jewelry deal, but turn the tables and slay their assailants instead. They not only keep their cash, but also make off with a fortune in gems that they use to muscle their way into a higher class of criminal. Big Apple mobster Twain Bogart (Johnny Kitt), who has all the fences in town in his pocket, resents their presumption and orders a hit on the duo for daring to try and play in his league. Simon and Bronco lay low and keep themselves one step ahead of Bogart's assassin, getting a breather when he takes time out to punish his mistress for trying to rip him off. They catch another break old pal Shake (Todd Payne) agrees to back them up. Bogart decides to negotiate with his new rivals and offers to reveal the name of the man who capped Simon's brother in return for the gems. Simon can't decide whether to choose revenge or riches and seeks Bronco's advice; unfortunately, someone slays Bronco at his motel. So Simon decides to outsmart Bogart and figure out on his own who killed his brother. Wounded during another robbery, Simon decides to give his half the money from the jewels to the mother of Bronco's child. Can Simon avenge Bronco's death before Bogart's hired killer finds him? Though it's clearly aiming for a semi-documentary flavor, this gangsta saga is relegated to the trash heap by lousy set decoration, colorless performances, poorly inserted flashbacks, gratuitous violence and muffled sound.
