Omar finds faith's salvation through Jesus preached at the mission. A plan proves that Lorenzo is truly a louse as lousy as they come. He collects funds in cash in amounts less than half below the company's goal keeping it for himself--even gambling with it. But just when Lorenzo thinks he's free it gets worse. The humor quickly adjusts to second chances and hope for others, including a homeless mission guy drunk, former aide to Bush the father, played by Christobal Krusen, who also manages to write, direct, and produce.
Multiple roles are common in these low-budget faith based films. I like to review them for what they are, a film as a mission, with a message. This DVD is Dove Approved, but does have some violence scenes. I was pleasantly surprised, as was my wife. A message to goodness and hope but light on the preaching. It's not high dollar Hollywood, not professing to be, but gets an entertainment job done well, and more. It's a mix of new and seasoned cast. Hollywood could not do this on the same budget, I suspect. The story was inspired in part by the real LEC -Life Enrichment Center of Norfolk.
There is CC and Subtitles but they seem to lag behind the scene. Maybe too much for those who truly can't hear. Other bonus includes 3 behind the scenes segments: 4 min of cast/crew commentary; 2 min of the shoot out scene; and 3 min of a dock scene. 7 advertising trailers are also included.
Because The Great Trejo's in it, I'll shout out the positives. Numero Uno, one, single almost-good card game scene featuring Danny Trejo in a maroon zoot suit! Numero Dos: the movie poster is damned fine.
But not even Don Trejo in a stylin' maroon zoot suit, or my really, really wanting to get into this film because of the whole crazy Call Center thing, none of that could keep me watching. This *dark comedy* ==which was neither funny nor noir-ish== was plagued by mostly terrible acting and an even worse script...which may have been the reason for all the bad acting. Just awful. It was a strong example of what they call ham-fisted writing [or directing, hard to tell which] that also seemed to move the focus artificially to some sort of religious conversion that just didn't seem believable.
I gave it a chance for longer than I should've, and watched 40 very YAWN minutes. Sad to say, this movie's not even worth it for free.
Don't believe the shills posting reviews here. Trust the IMDb rating more than Amazon because it really is not a good movie. After reading through most of the reviews I quickly saw the Christian undertones skewing honest opinion. I just wish I would have seen this before I started watching. Please don't make the same mistake I did - find something else to watch.
