About the Movie
Always one step ahead of the Feds, Paul Boxer is the most inventive and principled smuggler in the trade, and has never needed to carry a gun. When violent mid-level traffickers coerce him into designing a foolproof plan to bring ten kilos of cocaine across the México border, he maneuvers to rid himself of their hold over him once and for all. However, when a sharp and beautiful woman from his past enlists his help to escape this rival outfit, Paul must confront the man that is hunting him down, and choose between his livelihood as a drug runner and his integrity as a man.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The implausibilities rack up faster than the body count.
Fresh: 85 minutes' worth of cheap thrills. In a 95-minute picture, that ain't bad.
The kind of flick they don't make anymore!
Remember those stylish crime thrillers in the 80's? If you loved those, you'll love this. DOWN AND DANGEROUS is a modern take on the MANHUNTER/TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA/MIAMI VICE/HEAT subgenre, done very well. It's a serious cinematic treat.
Classic Action Succeeds with Modern Drama
This fast-paced, intense action film fits in with films made on a much larger budget. Viewers should watch it sheerly to see how independents can and should succeed in a genre that's overblown with regurgitated Hollywood plots. Additionally, anyone whole likes action films will enjoy the plot and pace of this based-on-a-true-story film. Lead actor, John T. Woods, really sells the role of Paul Boxer with all his nuances and struggles. Highly recommend this film!
This is a very witty movie which has a great plot.
