Poorly made and going through the motions

THE NIGHT CREW had promise, with an action-focused narrative utilising America's war on drugs as a backdrop, and a seasoned cast of B-movie faces who would no doubt do their best with the material at hand. Sadly, this turns out to be a film which hinges on the quality of the execution, and it just isn't that great.

The narrative is of the typical siege scenario, although it's cheaply-handled and plenty of it takes place at night to hide the paucity of the budget. The cinematography is poor and makes the film look cheap throughout, and the special effects of the shoot-outs and the like are merely ordinary. What's missing is suspense, something to keep you hooked to the unfolding action.

The cast is headlined by Luke Goss (HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY) as the leader of the heroic bounty hunters. Goss is all right, but he has done better in the past, and he seems to be going through the motions here like the rest of the cast members. Reliable B-movie star Bokeem Woodbine is better as the gun-toting Crenshaw. Danny Trejo has an extended cameo, and there are more minor roles for players like Don Swayze and Jason Mewes. Chasty Ballesteros and Luciana Faulhaber are the women of the piece and both particularly poor in the acting stakes. As for the extra, horror-themed sub-plot, that seems to be tacked on to the movie as it bears no influence on the narrative whatsoever.

The IMDb plot section announces: "They soon realize that their fugitive [...] is much more than she lets on." We do as well. We realise who she is in the first minutes. From there, we expect fun... that never comes because the story decides that the bounty hunters will remain ignorant. So, instead of what we want, we get dull images, boring gunfights in the dark.

Of course the bad guys always miss, with either assault rifles or rocket launchers, while the average guys (who hunt people for money, so no, I can't call them good guys) are as good at bullseye as they are at bullshit. Realising their inferiority at handling heavy weapons, the professional killers later opt for much better tactics, going one by one and hand-to-hand against the gun-wielding hero, with the results that you would expect. The Night Crew is one of those movies.

The action scenes do not make up for their inanity, in either tension, humour or spectacle. They are simply bad. As for Danny Trejo, don't expect to see much of him. He is there sporadically, and only for talks.

Pitiful DTV

Danny Trejo who is on the front cover is doing a cameo only. A bunch of bounty hunters crossed the Mexican border to bring back a mysterious girl who is going to testify against some cartel kingpin. We don't really care actually. It's poorly directed. They are supposed to be special ops team and they act like a bunch of amateurs during the siege in the motel. They scream "no" each time one of them is hit by a bullet. So cliché.

The dialogs are horrible. "Promise me you will keep on going if I am going down". Totally forgettable.

I don't even know if I can write 10 lines for this total garbage.
