When a stunt man dies in Miami, his uncle, a New York mob boss, sends a hit man to tail the stunt coordinator, whom the boss wants dead. The hit man, Eric O'Bryne, gets close to his mark's daughter, and through her he asks her dad to teach him to do stunts. While waiting for the word to kill this mentor, Eric discovers the joy of stunt work and of being part of a family. Meanwhile, several people are looking for the dead man's briefcase of money and a cloth bag of illegal drugs that he stole from an undercover FBI agent now desperate to get the borrowed drugs back to the bureau. The stunt coordinator says that 'we dance in the shadows of death.' Can Eric step out into the sun?

One can only take so many minutes of silly wacky scifi that doesn't seem to really offer much outside its own visuals.

When approaching this movie, I kept asking why a prequel? And why new actors? Now, this movie wasn't bad nor was it good. It was just up in the air. There were a few funny parts and then the "really?" parts. Compared to the 1st movie, the actors who played Lloyd and Harry were a lot dumber than Carrey and Daniels. I get that they're supposed to be dumb, but at least the original showed that they were still somewhat smart on their moves. As for making a prequel, I think it was just only on how to show how they became friends, but they could've done that with a sequel with putting in a flashback. D+
