Out of bounds, out of mind
17 June 2000 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

A pretty silly film, "Out of Bounds" begins as a teeny-bopper

style of movie that would suit John Hughes' tastes, and ends

like how a Charles Bronson vigilante film would be. Anthony

Michael Hall plays Darryl Cage, an Iowa teen who travels to L.A.

to visit his brother, only to have his duffel bag accidentally

switched with a bag belonging to a dope runner. What follows is

a frantic yet unbelievable streets of the city of angels. Hall

is a likeable actor (in my book, he's a lot cooler than Leo

DiCaprio!), but I wasn't used to seeing him in a gritty action

film like this. He's too much of a pretty boy to look ind
