With Merc, actor and director Justin Slayer attempts to meld hardcore sex with a storyline that pays homage to the artificial world created and glorified in the hip hop culture of the past and present. Slayer’s film epitomizes gangster life, guns and pussy, but whether or not his vision exemplifies a true reality is debatable. However, this reviewer would be lying if he was to call Merc uninteresting or even boring, and for what it’s worth the sex isn’t half bad either.
The film’s opening scene is heavy with narration and the whole thing coincides with a street chase involving a few hoods who rough up some guy in an unsightly back alley. The narrator [who is later revealed as being a hustler named Sick (Justin Slayer)], talks about how people like him are faced with death every day and that it’s ultimately their own inaction and cowardice that does them in at the end.
It turns out that Sick works for a thug named Greedy who seems to be drunk on power and severely limited by his decadent ways. His major flaw (as hinted by our main character) is his lustful desire for women and it’s this weakness that Sick intends on exploiting in order to take over his boss’s entire operation.
At some point Greedy becomes obsessed with Roxy (Roxy Reynolds) and she manipulates him through the course of the film before eventually robbing him blind. In an effort to sniff out the thief, Greedy calls upon Sick who’s instructed to investigate the theft with the help of his friend Rico (Nat Turner). Greedy tells them that he wants the thief dead and his money recovered. Meanwhile, Sick and Nat know that the true sticker-fingered crook is none other than the stunning Roxy. Yet, they play it dumb, because the two of them had fucked her on two separate occasions and didn’t want the truth to get out.
To make a long story short, Sick employs a character named Tawanda (Melrose Foxxx) to persuade Roxy into revealing the details of the theft so that he could get a better handle on the situation. Before long Roxy skips town and Sick seizes the opportunity to take over Greedy’s crooked business affairs by, well, killing him of course. To accomplish this he arranges to have Rico present during his attempt at taking Greedy’s life. Unfortunately for Sick, his buddy needs some hefty convincing before he agrees to go through with the plan; so to win him over Sick reminds Rico of their amazing trip to Brazil. Naturally, this portion of the film comes complete with flashback segments where the two of them are seen doing the nasty with some attractive Brazilian babes.
In the end, Sick and Rico seek out Greedy who foils their murder attempt and prompts the two to chase after him in their Range Rover. Following this scene the words: “To Be Continued” are displayed on the screen and the end credits roll.
While the story dialogue and the general plot of Merc proved to be exciting, the major drawback of the film was the shooting. Much of it was filmed by Sick on a camcorder during his many sexual conquests. So, right there the filming was of a poor quality. The portions where Sick wasn’t filming himself involved the work of a cameraman whose equipment drifted in and out of focus constantly and this only hurt the overall quality of the film.
Apart from those drawbacks, Merc was most enjoyable. The sex was hot, the plot was well structured and the acting was oddly convincing.
