Brenden (Chance Gilliam) gets fired from his job - and as what he thinks justified revenge he robs the place the very same night, and gets away with it even. So he teams up with his best friends Ilisha (Jess Tomasko), Mason (Devyn Williams), Tino (Gabriel Hawk) and Sydney (Megan Thompson), and they go on heists, robbing convenience stores and the likes, seeing themselves as the new Robin Hoods - even if they don't give the poor but only profit from their heists themselves, and the stores they rob are hardly "the rich". Soon enough, the friends have ammassed quite a bit of dough, enough to move out of the shoebox they live in and into a house where everybody has their own room, really. They throw a housewarming party, doing more than their fair share of alcohol and drugs - and only later find out that the ketamine they've taken was actually toxic. They all survive, but decide to have their revenge on their pusher Jayce (Nick Schwen) - and they notice a kick out of the violence that comes with this, so change their m.o. slightly to punish those they deem guilty - like pedophile Quinton (Joel Thingvall) -, robbing them blind as a side effect. But of course, every action has its eventual reaction, and it's not long before they take it too far, one of them gets shot, and shit comes crashing down on them ...

 

There's a certain nihilism to this movie that's somewhat reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange, and both book and movie are mentioned in this one more than once, but apart from that, Beguiled Company does not try to imitate the earlier work in any form or way but finds its own path, telling a well-structured story of a downward spiral, with well fleshed out central characters who are each given an individual arc. And solid performances and a directorial effort that finds a balance between action and atmosphere make this a cool cinematic experience.
