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

You were supposed to make a deal with him, not fuck his brains out!
The deal wasn't good enough!
Then you should have walked away.

I tend to like the original more yet the 1994 remake THE GETAWAY, was a very good film. The strength of this version is the modren pacing and action also the revamped dialouge and several additional characters. I bumped into david morse once...of note is his role in this film. THE GETAWAY works because the chemistry of sex and violence between the characters played by BALDWIN and BASINGER works. It's not cheesy or contrived. This film is a tale of moral love betrayal and the classic analogy of there being no honor among thieves. The remake follows pretty much the same plot as the STEVE MCQUEEN classic yet takes a few different turns. Fans of the original will like this version as well, one nice aspect is that it maintains a similar look to the original. During the early 1970's several films like this and GONE IN 60 SECONDS had the same visual flair. This film matches the tone of the original and succeeds as a modren film for contemporary audiences.
