Black Cat Run (1998 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
And to paraphrase the old saying, what's the most important thing about a low-budget action flick? Casting, casting, casting. You'll never find nastier or more dependable villains than the ones that Peter Greene (THE MASK, PULP FICTION) and Kevin J. O'Connor (DEEP RISING, THE MUMMY) specialize in. Not to mention Russell Means, for that extra touch of "desert ethnicity." Patrick Muldoon and Jake Busey were castmates in Paul Verhoeven's STARSHIP TROOPERS, and character favorites Rex Linn, Jeffrey DeMunn and Lois Chiles round out the lineup. Can't go wrong with a roster like that.
Not a movie that pretends to be anything but what it is, so when you want high-speed chases and shoot-'em-up, blow-'em-up-real-good sequences, fire up the VCR with this one, pop the popcorn and have at it.
Lots of action and I love the cool cars.The only part of the movie I had a problem with is when Johnny Dale backed out of the garage through a brick wall being so close...*L*....Overall the movie was awseome and full of excitement.
Homage to old UIP action film
Amelia Heinkle and Lois Chiles is hot!!
---One Truck Drivers Opinion---
The one thing I want to call out, though, which nobody else has mentioned, is the luscious soundtrack. Some really tasty, slow guitar on top of businesslike chord structures. It's not flashy, but it is soulful and sweet. Great sounds and the mixing was spot on: the music was there when it should be but never stepped on any dialogue. Great job!
I wouldn't mind having this soundtrack, and I never say that.
history. I almost have to recommend watching this movie, because laughing at this film is actually quite enjoyable. I came to this site to find the title of the film and was temporarily stunned to see Frank Darabont as one of the writers. i say temporarily stunned because although Darabont is recognized as a Hollywood
heavyweight, educated film viewers will recognize him as the talentless hack
that he is. If you've ever seen the overlong, tedious, Green Mile, you'll know what I'm talking about. He put 2 incredible Stephen King stories on film--damn hard to screw up a story as incredible as the Shawshank Redemption--but when
working from his own material--he produces The Majestic, easily one of the
worst movies of all time. Bottom Line--Frank Darabont sucks, and so does this movie. I'm out.
