Storyline

Drug addict Jesse think he's found the answer to all his problems in the form of a breifcase full of money. However, the money isn't his and stealing it from right under the nose of a gang's hitman isn't a good idea. With his new wealth, Jesse heads home to the coastal region where he grew up. There he meets up with childhood friends, but the bad guys are hot in his trail, so now everyone's in danger. Written by Rob Hartill

Good drama despite weaknesses
18 July 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Junkie and down and out Jesse stumbles into the middle of a drugs buy. He steals $200,000 from the deal and flees for his hometown in Texas. He joins up with his childhood friends, however the owners of the money begin to search for him and get closer every step.

This story by Thornton is actually quite a good drama. The plot is split in two – one with Jesse with his friends in Texas, the other with Marshall and his gang working his way back to his money. The stuff with the gang is very good but is maybe too cruel for it's own good, however it works well as a crime thriller. The rest with Jesse is OK but doesn't work totally because he is quite a selfish character who brings a lot of harm to those round him – are we supposed to feel sorry for him or like him?

The cast are all very good. Stoltz is never brilliant but is quite good here, however of the three friends Corbett (Northern Exposure) is the best. Billy Bob Thornton is on top form as Marshall and his gang has a few well known faces – the only downside is that the gang are maybe too cruel and their laughing as they kill makes it quite hard to watch at times.

Overall this is better than I expected. The story isn't anything special but it has enough nice touches to make it interesting. The weakness mostly lies in the unsympathetic nature of a character we're supposed to root for.
