Genre: Action

Director, producer, editor, stunt driver, and screenwriter Paul Wynne completed eight projects with York Pictures over a four-year period. While he is no longer with the company, Wynne left them an archive of films varying in quality. While his last film with the company, Alien 51, truly proved Wynne to be burnt out, his first movie with York, 2 G’s & a Key, showed just how much potential he had, and still does, to be a great independent filmmaker.

Curtis has just gotten out of jail after a three-year stint in the state penitentiary for dealing dope. There to meet him is his best friend, or his only friend since they’ve all been murdered or sent to jail, Warren. While things start out calm, we eventually learn that the drug dealers who provided Curtis with the $20,000 worth of dope that were seized by the police still want their money back. Now Warren must turn to drug dealer Andre, asking that he provide Curtis with a position as a drug runner. Andre agrees, but Curtis is a wild child, delivering the drugs only after stopping off to have sex with a former girlfriend who is able to score a couple grams from him. With Curtis’ decision to add baking soda to the coke, the entire world begins to enclose around him, allowing Wynne to create a relatively worthwhile urban feature.

While Wynne did go a little overboard with his editing techniques, not to mention his lack of attention to continuity, I have to say this was an amicable start for Wynne with York. He did direct three released films prior to his relationship with York, so it’s not like he was a beginner here.

2 G’s & a Key is still impressive despite there being nothing especially special about it.

Also available in a double pack with the well worth-a-look Random Acts of Violence.
