[walks into a bullfighting arena with Johnnie and Jamie]
Do you read Hemingway? He understood the fight. He knew why it was important to celebrate the kill. The bull is a symbol for life. The struggle, survival. An elegant and violent journey towards life's inevitable end. Today, people have become cowards. They scream for the Animal Rights, then they go buy meat neatly rapped in plastic from the supermarkets - hamburgers, hotdogs, chickens. They don't kill it, but they sure do eat it.

There is tremendous character development in "One Last Score". Matthew Modine, John Hurt, Kevin O'Conner, David Keith, and Bruce Dern, all deliver excellent performances. The movie is almost dragged to a halt however, every time Lisa Marie opens her mouth. Her acting is so wooden, and character so miscast that she alone almost sinks what otherwise is a fine film. The bull ring caper and subsequent chase is somewhat rushed to conclusion, and the ending most certainly is controversial, somewhat like the final scene in "Cutter's Way". Other than Lisa Marie's performance, the movie is terrific. Seek this one out. You will not be disappointed. - MERK
