Storyline

Our heroine isn't having a good time. Having lost her L.A. job and walked out on her unfaithful boyfriend, she finds herself stuck in nowhere Macon County when her car and possessions are stolen by the girl hitch-hiker she picks up on her way to New York. Though innocent, she is thrown in jail for holding up a local store, then kills the sheriff's son when he rapes her. Now she's on the run with a convicted felon, but she still can't quite see that this really isn't her lucky week. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Before Kill Bill there was...this movie.
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Carradine stars as a prisoner who protects a vulnerable Ally Sheedy from a corrupt prison warden (played by, of course, Charles Napier) who is out to exact vengeance on Sheedy for the murder of a prison guard trying to rape Sheedy, once again it is up to Carradine to protect her and provide us lucky audiences with a romance subplot between the ancient Carradine and the fairly old Ally Sheedy. Back in the 80's, Sheedy was a brat-packer that like Molly Ringwald, went absolutely nowhere after the decade closed. Following her other co-star Judd Nelson's route, she started making B.movie fodder such as this and this is probably her and David Carradine's most high profile movies in quite some time. By that of course, I mean that it was the only new David Carradine movie you could rent at your local video store because the last one I saw was the dreadful Kill Zone and that was of course sad, since David Carradine is a fairly good actor. Oh and unlike most movies with David Carradine it actually was on Cinemax everyday when it came out, So I was able to tape it and watch it. The movie breaks no real ground as it basically is the elderly version of Bonnie and Clyde. However I do like the fact that Carradine at 60 is still doing these type of movies because few actors are as effortlessly likable as David Carradine. The movie itself rarely deviates from formula but for Carradine fans, this was the best movie he starred in, in the 1990's. True story, sad as it is.
