Nerve-shredding thriller about four friends who get lost in the big city and are pursued by a group of criminals after witnessing a gangland murder.
The film uses a low-key approach and resorts to a clichéd final act, but remains an entertaining watch, though it may have worked better as a TV movie or mini-series.
