Before Willem Dafoe and Mickey Rourke were cast, Morgan Creek (the financier) considered Kevin Costner for the lead and either Jeff Bridges or Nick Nolte as the Gorman Lennox character. In the end, the three actors' hefty price tags were too rich for the medium-budgeted production. See more »
This movie started out promising. Ray ( William Dafoe ) investigates an apparent suicide in the middle of the desert of a man with a briefcase full of money . After following clues ( including one found out of someone's stomach ) Ray eventually finds himself in trouble with criminals and the F.B.I. But after the first 40-60 minutes, the movie loses interest and becomes dull and boring. Even with the supporting cast of Mickey Rourke and Samual L. Jackson, White Sands trails away from the initial interest of the start and becomes a cliched " everyone chasing after the money " flick. I would only recommend this film for fans of Dafoe or people with nothing to do on a Saturday afternoon. 4.5/10
