Story


In a misguided attempt to protect his family and pay back gambling debts to the local Mobster, Jimbo robs a fish market, which is coincidentally owned by the same Mobster. On the run, Jimbo is cornered in a local curio shop, where he takes hostage an assortment of colorful characters, including Maguire, who may be his illegitimate father. Surrounded by the Police, the SAS, and the Mobster's crew, the young man must find a way out of his precarious predicament with the help of his oddball captives.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a thunderously unfunny mess, anchored by a pair of performances that are screechy (McMann) and completely colorless (Fraser), with the conflict escalating without anything even remotely resembling tension..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]
“..the movie has such a simple, straightforward, low-key approach -- as well as a uniformly likable cast -- that even if we never belly laugh or have our insides churning with tension, Stand Off makes for an enjoyable viewing experience..”
by Perry Seibert [TV Guide]
