Fascinating low budget film by Travis Milloy about a blonde, pony-tailed, wannbe criminal in Minneapolis named Joe Webster (Justin Pagel), who, with his loser buddies Danny (Scott Cooke) and Jake (Michael Egan), rob places but lose the cash during their poorly planned getaways. For Joe, it's not about the money it's about some sort of self-respect. So he muscles his way into the office of mob boss Sid Donnelly (Philip Ray) and boldly says that if Sid gives him a job, he won't regret it. Sid tests the kid first as driver for his creepy son (Timothy Lee), and then on more dangerous errands. Joe witnesses all sorts of criminal activity, but always proves himself reliable trustworthy. Then Joe's given a big assignment and unwisely enlists the help of Danny and Jake, only to find that they're caught in a set up and all their lives are at risk. Pagel makes for an unlikely lead he looks more like a surfer dude than a thug in training and the big syndicate head Philip Ray bears a striking resemblance to actor Michael Murphy, but these incongruities work in the movie's favor: It's violent, edgy and intriguing.
