Starring Anne Hathaway in a provocative leading role, Havoc is the riveting tale about youths with a taste for the forbidden. They were done with playing it safe. When Allison (Anne Hathaway) and Emily (Bijou Phillips) leave their rich, affluent neighbourhood for a joyride through East L.A they gain a glimpse of a dangerous landscape involving drugs, sex and gang brutality. As their fear quickly turns to infatuation, Allison and Emily find themselves seduced by a dark and dangerous world and in a situation they may not be able to get out of.
Spare us the faux "street"!

Early Anne Hathaway vehicle which gives you the unexpected sight of PG fave Hathaway enthusiastically servicing her pretend gangster boyfriend then losing her heart and key items of underwear to a real one played by Freddy Rodriguez. Hathaway and her mates play an infuriating bunch of privileged teens who are obsessed with being “street” and “keeping it real,” taking occasional trips to the less swanky areas of town like tourists at Whipsnade Zoo. When the only characters with any integrity are Rodriguez’ bunch of murderous crack dealers, you know that it’s going to be tough to care what happens to anyone in the film, and the weak ending is lost in a haze of indifference.
