Michael (Robert O'Connor) and Daniel (Raymond S. Kinsella) have been working for crime kingpin Tony (Michael O'Flaherty) for way too long without getting ahead - well, that's how they see it anyhow, but the fact that they might not be particularly bright might have quite a bit to do with it. Anyways, eventually they decide to rob a small videostore, knowing that the owner has quite a bit of money in its safe, and the storeclerk is a young girl, Jessie (Toni Bailey), who can easily be overcome. The also know the store receives deliveries after hours once a week, so that's the best way to get in and out unnoticed.

The heist goes better than expected, Michael and Daniel don't only get their hands on the money but also a package of drugs worth a small fortune. Sure they had to knock out Jessie and almost killed her, but hey, that's collateral damage, right? Well, not only wrong, but Jessie's also Tony's beloved niece, and he would do everything for her, and every cruelty in the book to those who hurt her - and suddenly Michael and Daniel find themselves in a fix. Fortunately, they are not identified as the perpetrators right away and actually asked by Tony to "investigate" in the matter, but being not the brightest, they manage to worsen their situation by the minute, and it's not long before Tony tortures one of them, and the other turns to the one person Tony would not expect him to turn to - Jessie ...

 

The Nixer is one of those little genre films that really rises up to its task to tell a compact genre story that's not too big for its budget, doesn't try to be über-cool, and doesn't try to hide its own shortcomings behind a plethora of genre quotes. Instead it ... just tells an entertaining story carried by black humour, likeable loser characters, a totally amoral approach, and perfect pacing that sees to it that this relatively small movie never loses steam.

Very nice, actually!
