Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich "business"-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife (Carol McCoy) to tell him that he's for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison. Benyon pulls some strings and Doc McCoy is released again. Unfortunately he has to cooperate with the same person that got him to prison. Written by

wow.lots of action,some brutal violence,even some black comedy thrown into the mix.oh,yeah,also some steamy love scenes and some double crosses.that pretty much describes "The Getaway".for me,all this is a good thing.at least,it works in this movie.there's a great cast,who all put in great performances.Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger play the two lead characters,with great supporting work from Micheal Madsen,James Woods,Jeniffer Tilly and Richard Farnsworth.if you like a action packed movie and don't mind brutal violence and nudity or foul language(there's a lot of that in here)you should enjoy this 1.as an added bonus,there are a couple of twists and,like i mentioned earlier,some black humour.myself,i really had a good time with this movie.i give "The Getaway" 9/10
