I kept hoping something would happen but it's just really wooden.Feel nothing fir any of the characters and it felt like there were too many plots that fizzled out and died.Too many wannabe gangster acts and I don't by any of the shootouts.The main feeling I got from this was cringe throughout,like when he walks into the club or when Phil Collins "I can feel it" comes on when someone gets shot and there's this weird camera movement.

Don't bother.

This movie certainly signifies the value of family over money. Really good story about attaing success through honest hard work rather than crime. Well recommended.

Awwwwfuuuuul..!
The worst script.
The worst acting.
The worst story.
A waist of time.
Doesn't mater that it was based on a true story.
This production was very badly executed.
Poor camera work.
Poor directing.
Poor structure.
Introducing characters out of the blue far too late in the story.
Confusing who was who.
Too many actors looked similar.
It is a movie about nothing going nowhere. Total drivel shmivel.

ONE WRONG TURN AND YOU CAN CRASH
Izak (Yehuda Levi) and Yuni (Joshua Biton) are young cousins in Israel with big plans. Yuni has a brother Levi, who robs banks. Izak's family owns a bar that allows illegal gambling in the back room with unsavory characters. When their lives are threaten in Israel,by a hothead named Tommy (Edward Furlong), they head to the LA to live the American dream. While in America, they manage to step on the toes of a drug czar, Mickey (James Caan) while fixing his car. When Levi gets out of prison and rejoins the family, his criminal ways haven't ended.

The film is based on a true story, and during the final credit run they show us actual photos of the characters with spellings such as "Izak" as opposed to the traditional "Isaac." I found that the story bordered on being exciting, but lacked the Hollywood glitz and drama style to put it into that thriller category.

The movie holds your interest, but just when you think it will grab you, it lets go. My biggest complaint is the cliche title. This is the best they could come up with? This is a 2 star film. I added a star for the soundtrack and their attempt to match the music with the era, although they played late 60's music for the 1970s because face it, the music was better.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, nudity (Leilani Sarelle) no sex.
