Ski Mask (Dave Smith) runs a gang of masked criminals that has a big networ all over the city and ties to the police that should keep complications of his back ... but that only works as long as he and his boys concentrate on black market crime, drug pushing and things like that - business that's not quite legal, so to speak.

Now though, ganbmember Meathead (David Kolenski) has picked up the habit of dragging beautiful women into his car and killing them - something that goes beyond even the tolerance of Ski Mask's police officer of trust (Michael Adam). But since this officer of trust is way too dependant on Ski Mask's money, he gives him fair warning and expects Ski Mask to sort things out rather than booking Meathead himself and risking to blow the lid off Ski Mask's outfit.

Problem is of course, Meathead is a madman as insane as they come, and he can't just be talked out of killing women - so Ski Mask decides to go on a girl-killing excursion with him, to try to somehow get rid of him in the process ... which might be a bigger bite than Ski Mask can swallow ...


Now admittedly, on a narrative level, Blackbags is not the most original of films, and also admittedly, most of the characters are as faceless as the masks they are wearing - but at roughly 20 minutes running time, this hardly matters with this movie, because it moves along at a breakneck speed, something that's only augmented by the movie's excessive use of rapid zoom-ins and zoom-outs (that though always match the current mood of the story), its pulse-pounding soundtrack and of course clever editing. Now add to this some grainy black and white visuals, and you've got yourself a pretty unusual genre flick - that maybe shouldn't be longer than 20 minutes, to be quite honest - but then again it isn't!
