Fresh out of prison, Thomas Taylor (Christian Slater) assembles a team of outlaws to pull off his most brilliant heist yet. Alas, the stolen money is marked, enabling FBI agent Mark Cornell (Val Kilmer) to swiftly track down Taylor & Co. But the corrupt agent is not interested in making an arrest: Using his knowledge of Taylor's guilt as leverage, the wily agent coerces the crooks into engineering an even bigger robbery, this time targeting a high-profile riverboat casino.

I grant you, I've only been reviewing movies on IMDb for three years now. And, in that time, I've only doled out two 1's for movies that were utterly abominable in every way, absolutely without redemption. Well, make it three. Hard Cash, aka Run for the Money, is simply one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Everything in this film - from the dialogue to the acting to the action to the plot to the direction - on their own are embarrassingly horrid, but combine to make a complete flop, bomb, and any other derogatory adjective I could possibly conjure. What amazes even further is that the cast contains some actors of repute: Kilmer (who, admittedly, has been in decline since refusing the fourth Batman film, a disgrace of a movie in it's own right), Woodbine, Hannah, etc. I truly hope those three actors (all of whom turned in horrific performances) fired their respective agents after this career-killer. As for Slater, well, I'm sure he was happy just to be working. In conclusion, do not, under any circumstances, subject yourself to this mockery of film-making. It's 90 minutes of your life you will never, ever get back.
