A struggling young couple stumbles upon a cache of dirty money after a shootout in their apartment building. With hopes of a better life they flee with the money -- provoking the fury of a corrupt DEA agent who will stop at nothing to get his money back, and arousing the suspicions of a detective who is determined to find out what's really going before its too late.

(at around 30 mins) Christian Slater pulls the trigger on his gun, but it only goes click. Semi-automatics are designed so the slide (top part of the gun) stays locked in the rearward position when empty. This condition would have alerted him that he was already out of bullets before bothering to shoot. See more »
The guy who sold it to them said they had a couple suitcases. Got on the freeway headed east. It's a bright orange '57 Chevy.
A bright orange '57 Chevy? We'll never find them now.

Christian Slater released two films at approximately the same time, "He Was a Quiet Man", and this particular piece. "Love Lies Bleeding" is a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde, but imagine Clyde as a miserably ignorant, somewhat philosophical "nice guy".
A young couple, Duke and Amber are living together on the wrong side of the tracks, dealing with poverty, crime, and general economic misfortune until coming upon a bag of money belonging to their drug-dealing neighbors. Also sought after by dirty cop Pollen, they go on the run to escape their depressing lives and find their dream life of a house with a yard and 2.5 children...etc...
Jenna Dewan is really developing quality acting skills, especially opposing Christian Slater's frightening "dirty cop" routine. Christian Slater once again shows his talents and versatility (very obvious if going between this film and "He Was a Quiet Man). This was a fantastic role for him. Brian Geraghty was slightly over-done, but it suited the role (Iraq war-vet that didn't come home quite right).
Overall, this film was chock-full of stereotypes and stayed rather cookie-cutter and predictable throughout. However, it was entertaining, and kept you going right until the end. Hence my rating of 8/10. It's not perfect by any means, but if you're not looking for substance, it's just a good entertaining film.
