While working for the mob, Bill "The Mouth" Mannuci, stole twelve million dollars from them, and turned over information to the F.B.I. about the man, from whom he stole the money, the mysterious "Skipper". Now, four of the "Skipper's" men have tracked down Bill to his new house in a small country town. Bill has been warned of this, and sends his wife Debra away. Captured by the "Skipper's" men, Bill is forced at gunpoint to take them to the missing twelve million dollars. But as they make their way to the money, Bill escapes, and the "Skipper's" men end up chasing him into a backwoods crystal meth lab, where a gunbattle ensues, after one of the "Skipper's" men opens fire. As Bill makes his escape, the lab burns to the ground, incurring the wrath of the labs owner, who is owed money by Bill. Soon, Bill finds himself being chased by not only the "Skipper's" men, but by the crystal meth lab owner and his men, and how does the Sheriff of the town fit into the equation?

A pleasant surprise.
22 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie surprised me in a good way. From the box I got the impression that it was an action thriller but it was too funny to be a thriller, even though it was somewhat exciting.

There's a lot of nice one-liners and funny situations in this movie and James Belushi was born to do Bill Manucci, he does a great job. The rest of the cast ain't half-bad either and especially Timothy Dalton is a treat.

The story can get pretty confusing at times as new characters shows up during the film. Things get more complicated as nobody seldom tells the truth about things. If you don't pay attention things might get a bit messy in the end but I really liked it.

Louis Morneau isn't all that well known but he has done a perfectly OK job with this one and I never really grew impatient while watching the movie.

Made men is well worth checking out.
