Casey (Thomas Jane) is a former drug dealer who quit the business to become a family man, he currently lives with his wife and works as an architect. Everything is normal, he hasn't been related to the drug business in years, but one day his former partner Nick (Aaron Eckhart) stops by his house and gives him some heroin, which Casey throws away.
This is where all the problems start, Casey starts getting 'visits' from people who are looking for that heroin. First is the Rasta Man (Glenn Plummer), then comes Dallas (Paulina Porizkova), after that comes Billy Hill (James LeGros) and finally a cop named Kasarov (Mickey Rourke). To make things even worse, in the middle of all of this Casey gets a visit from Dr. Jarvis (Michael Jeter) who wants to interview him to see if he's able to adopt a child, which is what Casey and his wife were planning to do.
I did find a similarity with Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and other films too, and it's the fact that nearly through the whole film you see ther characters in the same place, in Casey's house, but I don't think that means something anywyas. I saw a TV program the other day where they listed Thomas Jane as a promising actor, and I must say he's become one of my favourites, his role in here was pretty good. None of the other actors are seen as much time as he is but ont he supprting side Eckhart, Jeter, Porizkova, Rourke and everyone else were ok.
The film has some funny moments, something good, and some violence which I didn't find disturbing at all, actually some of the scenes where you see blood are rather funny. Through the film I got to really like Jane's character and I wanted the best for him, I guess most people will get that feeling. Nice writing and directing debut for Skip Woods in this cool flick which I think you don't wanna miss if you want some entertainment.
