After one too many encounters with The Spiders (a rival gang), The Ravens’ leader’s girlfriend tells him to quit the gang or it’s Splitsville. He does so, but the leader of The Spiders is hellbent on revenge and arranges the murder of the girlfriend. That ticks off the boyfriend, who wreaks havoc with the two gangs, who have joined forces in order to pull off a security truck heist.
If you liked playing Double Dragon on your Nintendo, you will love this movie! It’s about the kind of blokes you’d have in the video game but now it’s just about as psycho crazy and atmospheric as Abel Ferrara’s Driller Killer. A street-brawler kid quits his gang to live with his girl, but off course it’s not that easy to turn his back on the gang.. It’s a very simple plot, but it has a certain style and intensity that make up for that lack of complexity. The style, to compare, is a bit between Driller Killer and Richard Kern’s short films (The Hardcore Collection). A sometimes psychotic montage with lots of stylish and semi-shocking images and great action scenes with intense gore and a haunting musical score.
