The Film CA$H
I have to say this is not a bad movie at all, but I think it could be better. The movie starts with a good premise...a man who is driving down the highway suddenly finds a suitcase with more than half a millon dollars inside...what would you do? expend it? return it to the police? give it to the poor?. Unfortunately for him and his wife, he decided to expend it, only to find later on that the owner of the money has found him and wants the money back. Some of the things this man (Sean Bean) forced them to do are a little far fetched and have no sense at all. The script is far from being a master piece and the dialogues are flat, although the acting is really good, especially Sean Bean's performance. I think the director tried to mix comedy, thriller and action but failed to deliver any of them. I found the first hour of the movie very entertaining, but at the end, it got so repetitive that left me with a bittersweet taste. In conclusion, if you're looking for an entertaining movie, to watch on a Sunday afternoon, this could be it, but don't expect to see the best movie of your lives.
