Laughably bad
9 October 2002 | by (Southern Ca.) – See all my reviews

The "plot" of this movie has more holes in it than a brillo pad. FBI agents in cars can't keep up with Michael Madsen loping down a country road -- the same road that all the pointless chase scenes were filmed on.

Can you imagine a bank robber burying his loot in anticipation of incarceration then escape? How about if he buries his favorite jacket with it? Did Madsen have costume approval or something?

This is a great movie if you love coincidences. From the very conventional turning on the TV to find the announcer saying, "The latest Sweetwater killer victim..." to the imaginative: having the first four victims of the killer be women wearing uniforms. The sudden unslaught of a hurricane at the climactic scene, the sudden appearance of a laser scope on Madsen's gun, the mob boss who apparently doesn't miss his girlfriend when she's off with Madsen for a week... the mind boggles.

The part I found the most unbelievable was his ex-wife's new husband warmly welcoming the escaped bank robber into his home.

On the plus side... let me think... oh yeah. The plot was better than the acting, or editing.
