Plot

Brooklynite Nick and his childhood friend Manny grow up to become petty criminals. After Manny betrays him during a holdup, Nick goes to prison. Upon release, he visits his ex-girlfriend Maria in Los Angeles, where he learns the brutal, violent Manny has joined the police force and is divorced from Maria. Nick moves in with her and her 8-year-old daughter, Ally, and falls in with Maria's grandfatherly, ex-con landlord, Harry, who tries to groom Nick from his gruff ways. The two men come under police surveillance following a series of Beverly Hills bank robberies where the "gentleman bandit", as the press dubs him is a handsome, well-dressed man with a bandage on his nose.

  • Reception

    The film received generally negative reviews, with Variety saying it "plays implausibly on screen, especially since Jordan Alan has no feel for authentic texture or volatility within the crime genre", The Hollywood Reporter calling it "minimal entertainment with nothing to recommend it," and New Times finding it "[t]edious, poorly acted and predictable." The Los Angeles Times, however, called it "[a] very good, satisfying B picture with a lot of A virtues."
