Storyline

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 Jeff Cross

Goofs

When Quigley and Damitry are discussing Murphy's file, Quigley says Murphy along with 75 others were denounced in their case of being Elvis Presley's biological children. In his very next line Quigley says DNA testing eliminated 73 of the 75 outright. Damitry then asks him if Murphy was one of the inconclusive 2 remaining defendants, to which Quigley responds by showing a picture of Murphy's sideburns. This exchange implies that there were only 75 defendants total when the earlier statement points to 76. See more »

Fun action movie with a lot of style
11 March 2002 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

After hearing a lot of bad reports on this movie I was pleasantly surprised when I finally saw it. The acting is good, Kevin Costner's bad guy is great, it's well filmed with a lot of excellent cinematography, combined with absolutely perfect use of the soundtrack from minor audio cues right through to the explosions. This is not a sophisticated movie, but in its genre it is excellent.
