Sundown (2016/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B Extras: C Film: A-

Logan (Devon Werkheiser) and Blake (Sean Marquette) are off to Puerto Vallarta Mexico for spring break. Blake wants to film some 'booty' for his website and Logan is off chasing the girl of his dreams, but instead, meets a mysterious girl Gaby and wakes up drunk with his father Rolex watch missing and now is somehow mixed up with the Russian Mafia.

In Fernando Lebrija's Sundown (2016), all Logan wants is to be is a DJ and get the girl. He ends up in Mexico with his best friend Blake, who is the worst best friend, whose advice more often gets you into more trouble. Instead of hooking up with the girl he followed to Mexico, he meets Gaby (Camilla Belle), the beautiful thief and he loses his father's watch to the Russian Mob. But with a little help her and from their Mexican with mad taxi driving skills (and has more connections than a computer), they must get $5,000 in 24 hours to buy back his father's watch and to get home alive.

This was an amusing comical movie, at first I thought it was going to be another drunk American college movie, but it turned into an adventure. Two boys who went to go have fun, but find themselves in more trouble than they realize, but in the end they learn in order to save themselves they will have to break all the rules and maybe even grow up a little afterwards. Teri Hatcher and Sarah Paxton also star.

The anamorphically enhanced picture looks great, but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound sounds and plays even better. Extras include deleted scenes, behind the scenes and trailers.
