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
Throughout the movie, Kurt Russell's character is seen wearing a necklace. The necklace is "TCB" with a lightning bolt. "TCB" stands for "taking care of business" which was Elvis Presleys' slogan along with the lightning bolt. He had similar necklaces made, and gave them to his inner crowd. See more »

Then, there is an out-take with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell. Kevin Costner says "You're going back, Michael, back to the future!" See more »
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.
