Hard To Follow.
25 February 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Big City Blues was one of those films that was Just to hard to follow.

I thought the quality of the movie was shocking, it was always to dark, so dark That I could hardly see what the hell was going on half the time.

The only good thing going for this film was Burt Reynolds, Without him the movie would have been so much more worse.

Oh and yes William Forsythe was also fantastic.

This is a movie that wonders off in all different directions. Do your self a big favor and stay the hell away from this film, Unless your like me and are a super Burt Reynolds fan and will watch movies that are so incredibly bad just because Mr. Reynolds is in it.
