An examination of the malevolent London underworld with its despicable criminal underground. Ray (Mick Rossi) just finished an eight-year prison sentence after getting set up. Now he is back on the streets to settle the score.
In Moscow, the priest Owen hires a team to guide him in the underworld to find his friend Sergei that is missing while researching the legend about the existence of demons and an entrance to hell beneath the city.
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.

Val Kilmer has chalked up an impressive resume. Some of his films have garnered many top awards and impressive accolades. Select a series of action or dramatic films and you'll find his name listed therein. Alright, he's appeared in a few schmaltzy movies too, but there are others which more than make up for them. Here is one case in Point. The film is called "Run for the Money" also known as " Hard Cash. " The lively story is of a recently paroled thief named Taylor (Christian Slater) who has promised his little girl he will not steal any more, but soon after is ensnared by a corrupt F.B.I. agent (Val Kilmer) who extorts Taylor to rob a Casino's earnings of $6 Million in return for his daughter's life. Having little choice, Taylor assembles a motley crew and sets out to rescue his daughter with the help of his combative and argumentative gang. A fine cast which includes Balthazar Getty, Daryl Hannah, Michael Rosas and Verne Troyer as Attila prove their worth in creating a surprising and exciting drama. The intricacy of the movie is the crossing and double crossing of plans which moves this film rapidly along. Kilmer is very interesting as the heavy, a role he so often avoids. Nevertheless, and despite the occasional cheesy segments, this could very well become a sleeping Classic for Kilmer and Slater. ****
