This film could change your life. A friend introduced me to this movie a couple weeks ago, and not a conscious hour has gone by that I have not thought of it. If this seems remotely like your type of film (low-budget action gore) then you MUST see this. It immediately became one of my all time favorites. The cover does not do it justice. Think 'Mad Max' meets 'Polyester' meets 'Cannibal Apocalypse'... and you're sort of on the right track. Really, it's like nothing you've ever seen. I have never reviewed any films on IMDb before, with this movie I felt I had no other choice but to shout it's praises to anyone who will listen. It deserves to be legendary. Prepare to have your mind blown away.

Inspirational white trash masterpiece!!!!!Reviewed byyoungvagabondVote: 10/10
I have seen a lot of movies, there is no question there. But once in a while a movie jumps out at me so bad ass, so cool, and so different than anything I've seen in a while, that I need to tell the world. This film my friends is Deadbeat at Dawn.
Imagine the revenge elements of Death Wish, the slum scenery of Street Trash, and the gang battles of The Warriors all pent up in one angry themed film. That's the best way I can describe this film's feel in a nutshell.
Goose, who is played by the films director Jim Van Bebber, is a relatively nice guy caught up as a leader in a street gang called The Ravens. They do not get along with their rivals The Spiders and the bloodshed between the two is constant.
After realizing that he may end up getting killed and leaving his girl high and dry, Goose decides to quit The Ravens and join the working world to start building a better life. But now that he is not connected, The Spiders seize the day and get revenge on Goose starting a hell storm of revenge that ends up becoming one of the coolest paybacks you will ever see in cinematic history.
When I first saw a clip of this movie, I was reading reviews on IMDb before I purchased Deadbeat at Dawn. A review stated, "If you liked playing Double Dragon on your Nintendo, you will love this movie!" I saw some clips online and understood what the reviewer was saying. The last twenty minutes of this movie will make you feel like your playing a kick ass video game from the eighties.
Van Bebber actually has some fighting skills and is pretty awesome with the nun chucks. He beats a ton of gang members up.
The worst thing about Deadbeat at Dawn is that not enough people are aware of this low budget masterpiece. This is a grind house film; not some over produced multimillion dollar budgeted film with a filter over it. This is the real deal Holyfield.
The film is all around dirty and gritty, it carries a no holds barred "I'm making a brutal movie" approach throughout, and leaves the viewer in awe.
This independent, no-budget effort from auteur Jim van Bebber is amazingly powerful, and a must-see for anyone who enjoys realistic, merciless tales of life on the street. Seagal go home, van Bebber is so much intense and believable. A truly appealing masterpiece, which may be watched and enjoyed over and over again!
