This film is based on the true story of the Wonderland Avenue killings in Los Angeles, John Holmes (Val Kilmer) is an ex-porn star who gets involved with a group of drug dealers and that's where his problems start.
John Holmes and his new found friends decide to rob a crime boss of drugs, guns and cash by the name of Eddie Nash, but what they don't realise is who he is until they are actually doing the job, but they go ahead and finish to job anyway.
It does not take long for Eddie Nash to work out who has robbed him, but does he take his revenge?, or does someone else beat him to it?
This is a really good gritty film, with fine performances from the entire cast, for me Val Kilmer and Eric Bogosian (Eddie Nash) stand out most of all and are on excellent form, in Kilmers best performance I've seen from him.
The film is paced and told very well, it does show various people taking drugs, plus there's some violent scenes too, but for me at least nothing over the top, a very good film overall, well worth taking a look at.
