Director: Adrian Powers
Written and directed by filmmaker Adrian Powers, Scruples is a testosterone heavy thriller that has much indebtedness to the early films of Quentin Tarantino. Two ‘cleaners’ for a criminal gang have been sent to tie up a loose end. However, one of them is an undercover cop who finds himself in a tricky spot. A slightly insincere account of how a policeman would actually have to act is forgivable.
The 15 minute action-packed thriller has everything a blockbuster should have; flashbacks, suspense, dark settings, a knack for hiding the truth and top it all, a tremendously apt soundtrack which takes the film a couple of notches higher in terms of ‘coolness’.
