Having never been the biggest Mickey Rourke fan and not entirely entirely familiar with Dermot Mulroney's work, i was skeptical about watching this movie. Needless to say, i got past my skepticism. The only complaint I have about this movie was Mickey Rourke's mustache (damn! what where they thinking?) The tension never really lets up throughout the movie. After a daring bank robbery the gang turns on their leader (rourke) and heads for Mexico, never quite sure if the posse is on their trail or not, and not quite sure of their new leader (mulroney.) To call this movie a "thriller" would go to far but if there was ever a "western-thriller-type-movie" then this is it. The whole movie has a very dark overcast, very well put together, and very well written.
P.S. anybody seen THE WILD BUNCH lately?
