Synopsis

Garrison
James Barnes, Erik Collins, Kerry Valderrama and Elizabeth Ingalls co-star in the Valderrama-directed military thriller Garrison. A mystery directly inspired by the Fort Bragg mariticides of June and July 2002, Garrison tells of a military unit searching for a lost A.W.O.L. member named Nathan Cross. Hints abound that the soldier may not have absconded voluntarily - and that an onslaught of ugly violence belied his disappearance. Reaching out to their fellow enlistee, a number of soldiers set out to find the truth - but can scarcely prepare themselves for the skeletons they will uncover. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Jump Out Boys
DMX and Kris Kristofferson star as two men who share a similar goal despite operating on opposite sides of the law in this action thriller set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans and centering on the search for a dangerous Mexican drug lord. New Orleans is in the cold grip of chaos, providing the perfect cover for Mexican drug lord Santiago Rodriguez to stage a daring escape from a local jail. Aiding Rodriguez in his escape is his powerful uncle, the notorious head of the Catalina Cartel. But in return for getting him out of jail, Rodriguez must pay his uncle the $15 million that his girlfriend stashed away after he was arrested. But getting his cash back will be no simple task for the crafty escaped convict, because standing in the way is a veteran cop (Kristofferson) determined to put Rodriguez back behind bars, and a notorious hit-man (DMX) seeking to settle the score for the death of his niece. With death closing in from one side and justice fast gaining ground on the other, the only hope for this dangerous drug lord is to escape in a hail or gunfire, or die trying. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Valley of Angels
The Grand Prize winner of the 2004 WriteMovies.com International Screenwriting Contest, Valley of Angels follows a twenty-something drug dealer who falls into the dark side of the underworld after realizing that the City of Angels has lost its soul. Zachary "Zeus" Andrews is a Chicago transplant who moved to Los Angeles as a young boy, and quickly realized that he would never fit in there. A stranger in a hostile plastic landscape, Zues quickly became the go-to guy for rich kids in search of chemical kicks. One day, after meeting a girl who appears to transcend the materialistic culture they both inhabit, the small-time drug dealer receives a tantalizing glimpse of his true destiny. Now, just as Zeus becomes convinced that he is finally on the path to enlightenment and begins preparing to leave his old life behind, the harsh reality of his grim existence strikes back with deadly vengeance.

Who will the students elect to usher in a new era for humanity, and how will the rejected respond to the knowledge they don't have what it takes to form the building blocks of a new society? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
