3 star movie, no bad if you don't expect much
22 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***** Excellent movie, lives up to expecatations and then some

**** Decent movie, has few shortcomings, but could have been better

*** Not bad only if you don't have any high expectations

** Maybe a movie to watch while doing chores

* I'd rather be at work for no pay than watching this film

You can read the back of the box if you want to know what it is about, so instead of me reiterating that, I'll just give you all my opinion. It is a B rated film in my opinion which stars Christian Slater. Tim Allen plays a different character, a hitman of some sort, but yet still finds many times to insert his brand of humor in the flick. Slater plays about the same kind of average role in this one that he always seems to play in most movies, meaning he doesn't hurt the film, but yet he doesn't oooh and ahhhh us either.

Basically, Slater is a prison escapee who assumes a false identity of a man that the mafia thought they had taken out. So now Slater finds himself on the run, claiming that of all the dead people who could steal an identity from, he had to choose the one dead guy that everyone wanted to kill. So yes, there is a bit of attempted comedy in it, but for the most part it is dry and not laugh out loud funny. Then there is the girl, you know, the girl that the escapee falls for, the girl that at first is too good for him, but who then later begins to warm up to him.

All in all, if you rent this expecting it to be just a B rated type of movie, meaning, not that good but not too horribly bad, you won't be disappointed. I'd give it 3 stars on my scale.
