Summer (Hallie Shepherd) is walking the straight and narrow these days,
working at Dex's (Eric Colley) garage, and turning a blind eye when he
does any shady business rather than getting involved, as she has had
enough of that before - which is also why she knows Lance (Shawn
Christian), a local gangster who has once been her boyfriend and
accomplice, and who is now asking Dex to make a couple of dead bodies
disappear. Dex is ok with it, to Summer's shock, but one of his employees,
Willis (Conner Max), turns out to be a rather unwanted witness and is
killed ... before Summer's eyes, and now Lance and his right hand man
Brock (Casper Van Dien) thing it's a good idea to kill her as well, since
she has been an eye witness, and ultimately they blow up her car ... but
somehow Summer survives.
Back amongst the living, Summer has no idea
about what happened the night of her almost-murder, and she's ok with
Dex's statement that it has been an accident due to speeding - but since
she's been pretty much at heaven's door literally, she has visions of the
future, visions that feature her and her sister's (Alexis Monnie) murders,
but visions that also leave room for alternatives. Also, a detective (Ted
Rooney) turns out to be a bit too nosey for her to believe the accident
story, and also the mayor (Richard Carmen) is all of a sudden too
interested in her, with his motives being more than shady. And then
there's Franco (Wes Ramsey), one of Lance's men, who is getting close
enough to her to ring all her alarm bells - but there's something about
him that makes her trust him, among other things the fact that he could
have murdered her a good dozen times if he only intended to. And whichever
way you put it, Summer is far from in the clear now, and it's really
doubtful which is better for her survival, to just pretend nothing is
wrong (and pray that really is the case) or to find out what's actually
going on (and risk a bullet or two) ...
A nice little action
movie that might not be able to compare with its big budget counterparts
in terms of spectacle, but it manages to tell an engaging story that's
character-centered rather than relying on explosions, that manages to
paint in not too broad strokes but leaves plenty of gray between the black
and the white, that does its best to surprise until the very last, and
that keeps the dull moments down to a minimum. And a very engaged ensemble
cast help the audience to really dive into the story of course.
worth a look.
