John Milton is up against the clock: Jonah King, the leader of a Satanic cult, has murdered Milton's daughter and kidnapped her baby. In three days, King and his followers will sacrifice the child at midnight. Milton picks up the trail in Oklahoma as well as rescuing a waitress named Piper from her brutal, two-timing fiancé. There are odd things about Milton: his driver's license is out of date, he has a very strange gun, and he's being pursued by a man in a suit who carries FBI ID and calls himself the Accountant. Piper, who's lived a life on the sidelines, has to piece things together on the fly as they close in on King. Written by
When Candy is reading John Milton's driver's license at the Bull By The Balls bar, the D.O.B reads: 1-7-51. The month and the day is actor Nicholas Cage's actual birthday, however, Mr. Cage was born in 1964. The address is incorrect on the license as well, because there is NO 1034 W. 34th STREET, but there is a 1034 W. 34th PLACE, and the Chicago, IL ZIP code is 60608, not 60418 as stated on the driver's license.

In Fat Lou's Roadside Diner where Milton first sees Piper, the other waitress takes his order and he orders coffee "black, with sugar". There is already a coffee cup on the table and a sugar dispenser is already there. Then, as Piper quits her job and walks out, there is a shot of a lone coffee cup on the table and the sugar dispenser is gone. If Norma Jean had actually cleaned the table, the cup would be gone and the sugar dispenser would still be there. See more »
Since the birth of time, humanity has endeavored to restrain evil men in prisons. But since Cain fled the murder of his brother, evil men have fled the walls of punishment. So, it doesn't matter if you're a bad-ass motherfucker on the run, because you think you're better than everyone else, and somehow entitled to do what you gotta do. No. Because you see bad-ass motherfuckers are never fast enough. In the end, they will all be accounted for.

What more can you ask for, muscle cars, hot chicks, and action.
The title says it all. This is a throw back movie to the 70's drive in genre. Don't expect more and honestly that's enough. Some times you are looking for a smart movie like Traffic or Fargo, sometimes you want terms of endearment, but sometimes you just want to grab a hot dog, some pop corn, coke in a real bottle, and get on the roller coaster for the simple thrill of it all. You are looking for good looking cars, good looking girls, action, and a chance to forget about reality, shut down your brain, and get lost in absurd fantasy. That's what this movies is all about,no deep message, just fun. I love the charger in this flick. The chevelle is nice too, but unlike the star character, I'm partial to the charger :-) I would have like to see it remain through out the entire movie, but at least it's there for most of it. Nicolas Cage has been given a hard time lately for his choice of movies. I enjoy him in just about every movie he makes. Whether action, fantasy, family, or some bizarre niche film he's worked on. He always gives a solid performance. I hope to see a second one of these. Not likely, but I can hope.
