Synopsis: Danny helps to capture a wanted criminal and receives a $200 reward. However, he has a falling out with the gang when they believe he should share the money with them.

Reaction: Typical East Site Gang movie with plenty of street-wise attitude and a bare bones story.

Personal Rating: 6/10
