Poor even by Fahey's standards
4 January 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Danny and his gang attempt to rob the warehouse of a mob boss, they find themselves on the run. Danny goes back to his hometown to find his mother has recently died leaving him the farm on the condition that he must open the dairy and run it for two years. However the gang is double crossed by Mo and the mob begin to hunt them down, meanwhile Danny and his gang consider robbing the mill in his town.

This is a very low rent film! It's a thriller that is very slow and dull, with no tension or action to write home about. The story is mostly about Danny going home and learning to be a nice guy again and starting to farm - the plot about the mob and the temptation of the "one-last-job" is almost a sideplot. That makes it feel so boring and slow. The action itself is uninspired - a house blows up, big deal.

The characters are stereotypes - the mob guys are a joke - and the performances match the material. I like Jeff Fahey, however this type of stuff is part of the reason he never gets big roles, he is poor in a poor film. And what is it with Gary Busey in Fahey films? In Lethal Tender he appeared to be in a different film and the same is true here. His character Mo only has a few scenes and all of them in his flat - to Busey this must have represented an easy week on set at most. Michael Madsen shows why he hasn't build on his cult success in Reservoir Dogs in a very, very lazy role.

Overall a very dull film that is bookended by action to try and make it interesting. This is bad even by Jeff Fahey's dubious standards.
