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>

predictable, inaccurate, forgettable
30 December 2006 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

First of all, yes, I understand that movies are fictional and don't always necessarily strive for realism in all aspects, but to name a movie after US Highway 9 -- which runs through portions of New Jersey and Delaware -- even use the highway sign for the title, and then stage the movie in a (fictional) desert town of Grimley, NV . . . that's just stupid.

From there it's all a very predictable, barely average movie. The acting is adequate enough to match the unexciting plot, which isn't saying much, and there seems to be an awful lot of mumbling (or maybe just a bad mix-down).

Don't waste your time on it unless it's one of those times where you just watch whatever happens to be on HBO, it's late at night, and you don't mind falling asleep before the movie is over. . . .
