Below par "on the run" road movie
11 January 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is another road-movie style thriller. The story is not exactly gripping as it slowly moves through the desert. J.T. Walsh 's investigation into the robbery is good but the body of the film is dull. The twists at the end are quite good but the conclusion lacks a punch due to poor character development.

Gil Bellows is OK in the lead but is too laid back for a role in a thriller like this - he doesn't have any mystery around him. Forbes and Sara are both quite dull and could have been played by anyone. Walsh adds undeserved class to the film but he really isn't good as he has nothing to do here.

Overall, a disappointing road movie come thriller that moves slowly along before ending in a good, if unmoving, conclusion.
