Way too long and a muddled script ......
13 June 2016 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Right from the git-go, "Payoff" is about 20 minutes too long. Keith Carradine's lovemaking with Kim Greist comes across as nothing more than an ego trip for Carradine. Harry Dean Stanton does not appear for the first two thirds of the movie, which is a shame, because he is the best thing "Payoff" has going for it. John Saxon is the bad guy and the plan to gain revenge by robbing his casino, while a good idea, takes way to much planning, with the actual robbery being rushed and extremely unbelievable. Gratuitous explosions, and an exploding model helicopter turn what could have been a tight caper into laughable action adventure. Recommended only for fans of the cast, because the muddled script drags the film down to mediocrity. - MERK
