This laughable crime drama coughs up drug-movie stereotypes at an alarming rate, and hiccups on every cliche. Two assassins, Jesus (David "Dyno" Rocha) and Navajas (Carlos "Pelon" Vasquez), realize that that dope dealing is more lucrative than their chosen profession and decide to branch out. After bending their ear of their venal boss, Logan (James Muldoon Logan), the beefy boyz get the nod to make their drug-trafficking debut at a Mexican border town. In a sure-fire deal arranged by Jesus' cousin, Tony (Daniel "Young D" Landeros), the entrepreneurs plan to pay $100,000 for enough heroin to yield a tidy profit in California. The exchange proceeds without a hitch. But when Jesus and Navajas stop for tacos, two young hoodlums steal their vehicle. The car boosters discover the heroin when they unload the auto with chop-shop specialist Robert (Justin Smith), and decide to peddle it. When Jesus and Navajas finally spot their stolen wheels, they torture Robert into revealing the name of the thieves' Ecstasy connection, Frankie (David Petersen). Jesus and Navajas kill Robert and terrorize Frankie into helping them locate the small-time crooks, who've already sold the smack to a border-town bad boy named Sleeper (Michael Rinks). Jesus and Navajas lure the wary Sleeper into a new deal, but their paramount concern is retrieving their cash and their goods before Logan discovers that they aren't smooth operators. This vanity production, which features a cast of unusually protly performers, sorely needed slicker writing and directing. This pulpless fiction is so devoid of suspense that it can't even be called amateurish.
