Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich "business"-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife (Carol McCoy) to tell him that he's for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison. Benyon pulls some strings and Doc McCoy is released again. Unfortunately he has to cooperate with the same person that got him to prison.Written by

Michael Madsen accidentally banged Burton Gilliam's face into the closet door for real. As a direct result of this, Gilliam had to be taken to the hospital to get four or five stitches in his lower lip and was thus unable to work for five days until the swelling went down and the stitches were subsequently removed.

US theatrical version trimmed sex scenes between Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger to get a R-rating. The European release and US unrated videocassette are uncut. See more »
I usually hate it, when they go back and look for movies to redo just to earn some cheap cash.
In this case I feel differently though.
It begins with the cast. A lot of (then) hot actors like Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Michael Madsen, James Woods... Need I go on?
Also they kept most of the basic plot and elevated it to a new level. The new version is bolder and should appeal to a new audience.
It's a classic tale of deception, love, and betrayal.
First our Hero, Doc (Baldwin) get's thrown in Jail. After a year his wife (his back then actual wife Kim Basinger) makes a deal with the crook turned respected businessman Jack Benyon. He's to rob a racetrack. For this Benyon already assembled a team. That includes the guy that was kind of responsible for Doc getting sent to jail for a year.
The heist goes off almost without a hitch but from that moment on everything goes south. first Rudy (Madsen) kills the 4th guy involved in the thing and then tries to off Doc and his wife. Doc's of course faster with the gun and hurts Rudy badly. He survives though, because he wore a bulletproof vest, which he usually doesn't. Then doc and his wife head up to Benyons place to split up the money. Benyon (Woods) of course has other plans. Plans that involve Docs Wife (a really hot looking Basinger). But she opts to go with her husband and kills Benyon. So no they not only have Benyons Guys on their tail but also the very pi**ed off Rudy.
If I were to continue telling you the plot there would be no need for you to watch the movie.
Just let me tell you that it's a great remake that tops the original in several aspects. The acting is top notch by almost all the major characters. The action is fast paced and very violent. (I base this on the unrated HD-DVD).
So if you have a few bucks lying around. Get this movie, I am pretty sure you can get it for under $10 in about every big store..
