Upon getting out of prison, a man who took the rap for some thief buddies gets together with them again, and tells them he's not interested in doing things with them any more. They stick a dead body in his trunk, unbeknownst to him, and he roars off to find his future. Unfortunately, they forgot to get the key they need off the body, so they're chasing him. Meanwhile, a mafia kingpin's daughter is trying to kill the hitman that killed her father, but her grandmother is trying to make peace with the family that hired the hitman, so she and her thugs are trying to stop the daughter. The guy and the daughter get together and experience mayhem on the run from two directions. Written by Ed Sutton <>

Nothing special but it passes the time nicely enough
17 April 2003 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

It's true that the formula to this movie is more than a little overused these days, but it's acted well enough by Madsen and Arquette, and being less than an hour and a half in duration, it keeps you interested anyway. I found it a very easy to watch, albeit fairly predictable film that's inoffensive and, occasionally, great fun. Patricia Arquette looks gorgeous in "Trouble Bound" (I seem to have developed a thing for her after seeing "Human Nature"!) and the overall result is a slightly above average action comedy. 6.5/10
