Storyline

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 Lars J. Aas <larsa@colargol.edb.tih.no>

Trivia

During the scene where Carol is driving the car and Doc is shooting from the back seat, a spent cartridge ejected from the gun hit Kim Basinger on the lip. Filming stopped for over a week while the wound healed. See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence, Doc and Carol are practicing their shooting. One fires a Colt .45, the slides stays to the rear, showing that it is empty. But you can see the crimped end of a blank round stuck in the ejection opening. See more »

Jack Benyon: Thought I'd never see you again. The news said one dead.
Doc McCoy: [drops the bag] Three dead. Hansen got jumpy and shot a guard, and Rudy got ambitious and killed Hansen, then he lost his head and tried to kill me.
Jack Benyon: How's your wife?
Doc McCoy: Let's cut up this money. I wanna get outta here.
Jack Benyon: I don't like complications.

One of the 90's best films in the genre!
1 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

With this movie it's obvious that not all the remakes are a mess. The Getaway's 1994 version is much better than the Steve McQueen-original witch is not a bad movie at all. But the Getaway 94 is a blood-pumping intelligent hot action film with deep human characters, amazing sex scenes (rare in American movies), real action and a very good plot. Roger Donaldson's directing is the highest grade of action film making. The script is perfect the stars are phenomenal (Alec and Kim in their best form), even the supporting actors are very good: James Woods, Michael Madsen, Jennifer Tilly and Richard Farnsworth. Alec and Kim are the Bonnie & Clyde of the nineties portraying very human criminals, their conflicts are so real in the story... after all it's one of the best films in the genre of the 90s! A must see for every action-thriller fan!
