Storyline

When two small-town deputy sheriffs stumble onto a crime scene where a drug buy had gone bad and everyone was shot dead, they discover a suitcase full of cash - $1.5 million. They decide to take the cash and cover-up the theft by burning the car the cash was in. However, things take a turn for the worse when they discover that one of the men is still alive and he has overheard their plans. They then have to suffocate him to stop him from revealing their plans. Things get even worse though when the DEA shows up and tell them that the man was one of their agents and he was wired. And then things take another bad turn when the coroner, who first received the body, discovers the tape first, switches it and wants a 50% cut. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

4 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

The movie concerns the usual story of sheriff and deputies from a small-town . Kyle McLachlan and Wade Williams discover a pair of dead bodies , drugs and a loot of cash and they decide to take it . They then burn the vehicle where the money was in . But events go wrong and Feds and DEA (Roma Maffia and Richard Riehle) come investigating . Besides , the coroner (Miguel Sandoval) discovers some engaging tapes . Their chief (Peter Coyote) gets suspects and his gorgeous spouse (Amy Locane) is the lover of Kyle McLachlan who wants to flee with her .

This TV movie contains noisy action , thriller , twisted plot and turns out to be pretty entertaining . From the beginning to ending the tension and suspense is continuous . US ¨Route 9¨, film title , runs from Laurel, Delaware -US Route 13- to Champlain , NY near the USA-Canada border and includes a ferry connection . Actors playing is top-notch with special mention for Kyle MacLachlan and Peter Coyote . There also intervenes two future successful television stars in the hit titled ¨Prison Break¨: Wade Williams and Silas Weir Mitchell . While protagonists watching TV appear images with David Paymer and Tony Godwyn , it results to be the former film by director David McKay titled : ¨The lesser evil¨ also starred by Richard Riehle . The film packs a spectacular , atmospheric soundtrack by Don Davis , David McKay's habitual musician including ¨Turbulence II¨ . He's nowadays very known for his ¨Matrix¨ musical score . The motion picture was well directed by David McKay in spite of the short budget . It's a great stuff for action and suspense lovers .
