review by
Mike Haberfelner

Back in the day, Ray (Braxton Angle) and Grant (Justice Joslin) were the best of friends, a brother-like friendship that soured a bit when the former became a police officer, the latter started working at his mobster father Carmine's (Michael DeBartolo), but despite that they've never had a real fall-out. Then though Carmine is killed by his opponent Rooker (Vernon Wells), who wants to take over Carmine's outfit, and of course Grant wants revenge and together with his father's right hand man Vincent (Simon Phillips) makes up a plan to kill Rooker. Now Ray's after Rooker himself, and he begs Grant to not do anything stupid and let the law handle it - but somewhat rightly Grant claims that most of the local police is on Rooker's payroll. So somewhat unwillingly, Ray tags along with Grant and Vincent, to see that things don't spin out of control. And in the meantime, Ray's dad (Michael Paré) takes care of Grant's 11 year old daughter Jada (Tenley Kellogg). But somehow Rooker must have been tipped off as he has the old man beaten to a pulp and the girl kidnapped, just to lure Grant into an ambush - which totally works of course. Now Grant's at Rooker's mercy, and his only hope is Ray, who has split ways with him earlier to go see his father in hospital. But this is a bit of a lose-lose situation, because if Ray brings the police, it's more likely than not that Grant will end up in jail, and if he comes on his own, he's grossly outnumbered by Rooker's men ...


End of Loyalty is basically a throwback to testerone-filled 1980s and early '90s action cinema, when men constantly had to prove themselves in fights, would go hand-to-hand even if armed to the teeth, where supporting characters would drop like flies to give testament of the lead characters' prowess, their deaths being treated as means to an end - and as such, End of Loyalty is really very good, all the fights and shoot-outs are well-staged, with some really nice stuntwork, the whole thing's well-paced, and there's plenty of excitement throughout. And even if the film might not be too much on the brainy side, it's actually a lot more believably and thought through than many movies of its ilk. In essence, maybe not an intellectual masterpiece, but good action entertainment throughout.
