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
Billy Bob Thornton comes across well as a calculating drug dealer who wants his money back. Retreiving it from the loser "druggie" (Eric Stoltz) who stole it leads to Galveston, where Stoltz is hiding out. The movie is engaging, with a logical plot, and decent character development. Screen time is divided about equal between Thornton's pursuit and Stoltz's reuniting with his old Texas cronies. "Don't Look Back" has one very important flaw, and unfortunately it is a desperately weak ending. The "Rambo-like" conclusion seems forced, and totally out of place with what has preceded it. Nevertheless, there is enough good solid plotting, and quirky characters to keep it afloat. - MERK
