The Barrage Of Madsen Direct To Video Junk Continues!
26 October 2004 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

In The Late 90's and early 2000, Michael Madsen fell into a downward spiral of Direct To Video Features ("Choke", "Sacrifice", "Luck Of The Draw", "The Ghost", Voodoo Dawn", "Primal Instinct")

Chalk up another mediocre Madsen Flick: "Strip N' Run" (AKA: The Thief and The Stripper) He plays a gangster named Jimmie D. who is the voice of reason for other characters. To get straight to the point: The movie looks cheap, and the editing is jumpy. Madsen doesn't really do anything at all. He looks sleepy. The funniest part of the movie is the appearance of Todd Bridges as a hoodlum. He shoots people and goes way over the top. His death scene is pretty hokey. He just covers his chest after a poorly mixed gunshot noise.

In Conclusion: The movie has the sleazy moments you want (stripper nudity) and some decent acting.
