Did You Know?

Goofs

(at around 30 mins) Christian Slater pulls the trigger on his gun, but it only goes click. Semi-automatics are designed so the slide (top part of the gun) stays locked in the rearward position when empty. This condition would have alerted him that he was already out of bullets before bothering to shoot. See more »

Quotes

Hendricks: The guy who sold it to them said they had a couple suitcases. Got on the freeway headed east. It's a bright orange '57 Chevy.
Pollen: A bright orange '57 Chevy? We'll never find them now.

Not a very good thriller...
27 September 2008 | by moviedude1See all my reviews

When ex-con Geraghty comes home one day to find his home ransacked (again) and his girl (Dewan) roughed up by gang bangers, he's had enough. When he decides to take matters into his own hands, he shows up at the scene of a shootout over a bag of money left lying on the floor. After grabbing the money and running. He figures a safe distance away and starts to settle down, only to find bad guy psychotic Slater on his trail.

The genre categories on this film are stated as action, drama, and thrills. As for action, very little; drama, more than what should be in any action film; and thrills? Well, no thrills here, especially for someone who doesn't, ordinarily, like movies like this.

As for some of the leads, Geraghty didn't pull off his character, at least I didn't believe him and when did Dewan grow up? In two years, she's gone from high school ballet student in "Step Up" to high school teacher (?!?!?!) in "Fab 5: The Texas Cheerleader Story" and this one, where she's just a kid again starting out on life's journey. Slater was always a favorite of mine, but I just could not believe that he's happy with this performance. Whoever taught him who act as a psycho on the edge should give him a refund (or at least change for that dime he charged Slater for the acting lessons).

Overall, the premise was good, but the acting was not. Three bad acting jobs takes three stars away from what WAS a good story line. 7 out of 10 stars.
