Overachieves thanks to the heavyweight cast........
As has been mentioned, the great cast carries this stolen currency plates crime drama well beyond expectations. Special mention must be made of Eric Roberts, as his performance alone is worth the watch. Michael Madsen is somewhat subdued, Dennis Hopper plays Dennis Hopper, and the rest of the cast is totally acceptable. Thankfully the story plays out in a mostly logical manner, and without any annoying Tarantino-like flashbacks. The film is what it is, and what it is, is pure entertainment with little or no distractions for style points. Pay attention to the sharp dialog, overlook any flaws in logic, and you will enjoy it. - MERK
