The arrival of a fourteen-year-old Native arsonist (Kyle Henry) sparks a bitter turf war between two rival street gangs vying for control of Winnipeg's North End in Hey, Happy! director Noam Gonick's vivid depiction of the destructive impulses that plague the streets. Backed by a crew of Filipino enforcers who aren't afraid to face up to a challenge, ABS (Asian Bomb Squad) leader Omar (Ryan Black) rules the city streets by utilizing a potent combination of fire and fear. But Omar isn't the only troublemaker looking to cement his status as top thug on the block. Embittered girl-gang leader Mama Ceece (Deena Fontaine) has just been released from jail, and with a little help from her vicious Indian Posse, Ceece is determined to wrestle back control of the streets from the opportunistic ABS gang that thrived in her absence. When a fourteen-year-old Striker (street slang for potential gang member) arrives on the scene fresh from his northern reserve, the confrontation between the ABS and the Indian Posse quickly escalates as each gang prepares to find out once and for all who truly rules the streets of the North End. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Perhaps the film isn't quite that long.. but considering the boring, aimless (and talentless) lead character mutters less than 15 words throughout the entire film, it can definitely feel that way. The story is horrible.. several times the movie should have ended, with the Asian gang leader surrounded and seemingly done in by the "vicious" Indian gang members, yet inexplicably the "savages" just lose interest, drink and smoke, he gets away and the movie goes on and on! The Indian actors, led by the monotone and monosyllabic Mama character, are some of the worst actors I have ever seen. The Asian actors aren't much better.. but I have to admit the only reason I hung in for the entire movie was to see their amazing physiques shirtless (and sometimes pantsless).. sadly, that is no reason to recommend this film.. but it's just about the ONLY thing I can recommend!
