Storyline

Two Arkansas firemen, Vince and Don, get hold of a map that leads to a cache of stolen gold in an abandoned factory in East St. Louis. What they don't know is that the factory is in the turf of a local gang, who come by to execute one of their enemies. Vince sees the shooting, the gang spots Vince, and extended mayhem ensues. As Vince and Don try to escape, gang leader King James argues with his subordinate Savon about how to get rid of the trespassers. Written by Jesse Garon <grifter@primenet.com>

Goofs

1990s cell phones were far less powerful than those of the 21st century. While it is a cleaver idea to use them as walkie talkies, the fact their signals would have be transmitted outside of the factory and then back in to be received as well the extant metal inside the building would have rendered them nearly useless.

Quotes

King James: [interrupting Raymond's phone call] Yo Raymond. I need you to do some recon for me. See how those country motherfuckers got here. I know they didn't walk.
Raymond: I ain't got time to be playin' army with you trigger-happy motherfuckers! I got business to tend to!
King James: [produces bundle of $100 bills] Cancel it. I'm hiring you for the rest of the day.
Raymond: [into cell phone] Yo. We're gonna have to reschedule that thing.

Who's going to call the cops? The pigeons or the rats?
13 February 2012 | by SpikeopathSee all my reviews

Trespass is directed by Walter Hill and written by Bob gale and Robert Zemeckis. It stars Bill Paxton, Ice-T, William Sadler and Ice Cube. Music is by Ry Cooder and cinematography by Lloyd Ahern II. Plot finds Sadler and Paxton as two fireman who learn of stolen treasure hidden in a disused building in East St. Louis. Upon arriving there they begin their search but are interrupted when a gang led by Ice-T's King James decides to use the building to execute an enemy. A stand off ensues....

It was held back from release under its original title of "The Looters" due to the L.A. riots in the summer of 92. Where under its new title it was released at Christmas and promptly bombed at the box office. A shame since it's a taut and claustrophobic thriller crafted with knowing skill by Walter Hill. Clearly an urban take on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, with dashes of Rio Bravo thrown in for good measure, film makes the most of the premise without using pointless filler and by not being afraid to up the racial hatred aspects of the stand off. Hill's construction of the action is first rate and smooth, and the cast are firing on all cylinders to make the material work in what is practically a one location picture. 7/10
