It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy. Written by

When Murphy reaches into the bag right before the final shootout, a scorpion stings him. However, the scorpion exhibits some impossible behavior. First, the scorpion jumps on his hand, but scorpions can't jump. A scorpion probably wouldn't attack a moving object like that, anyway. Second, the scorpion stings the hand. However, it stings it by bending the tail under its body. This is impossible since scorpions don't sting like this. They sting up and over their body. They also sting what they have in their claws. They are designed to capture prey in their claws and then feel around it with the tail and steadily deliver the sting. See more »
Blah, Blah, Blah. Yes, there is a lot of violence and foul language in this movie. If that is the sort of thing that offends you than don't see this movie. If not, this was a great action movie. I was really surprised because of negative reviews. I wanted to see it in the movie theater, but couldn't find anyone else to go. I regret now not seeing it at the theater. Costner was EXCELLENT as the bad guy. Russell was good too. And there was an excellent supporting cast. You will see this movie and after you were done with it you will say this movie was different than I thought - guaranteed. This is a perfect example of critics killing a great movie (it was the violence and language). One of the best action movies I have ever seen.
