Information and Film Reviews for Deadbeat at Dawn the Movie

Visitor rating
1.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

Goose (writer/director Van Bebber) is just your average gang-leader who enjoys selling drugs and having knife-fights with rival gangs in the local cemetery. But when his girlfriend Christy (Murphy) threatens to leave him, Goose decides to quit the gang and lead a more normal life. But first he must do one more drug deal. Van Bebber definitely shows a flair for action filmmaking. Stuntwork is fine and he gives the film a kinetic energy that is only occasionally undone by sloppy editing. However, the story and tone of the film leave much to be desired. The whole gang/revenge plot is far from original and the unappealing characters do despicable things.
