Good action film with a deranged Billy Drago .................
5 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure you get the required car chases and explosions, but you also get a fine cast, interesting characters, and above average acting for this type of movie. There is also some sharp dialog and humor. Chad Lowe and Jeff Fahey play brothers who have issues, after being separated for ten years. Sherilyn Fenn is a waitress who helps them avoid the law, and an old enemy, Billy Drago. Everything moves along at a fast enough pace, and the characters are well developed. The New York locations work, and there are even some genuinely tense moments. If you go into this low budget action film with realistic expectations, it will not disappoint.
