A Las Vegas cab driver finds a million dollars of stolen money in his cab after his fare is murdered. Soon after, a ruthless hitman is in pursuit; he will stop at nothing to recover the money and dispose of all witnesses.Written by
This is an extremely suspenseful, lighting paced thriller about a cab driver (Andrew McCarthy - Weekend at Bernies) who finds a suitcase full of money in his cab when a mysterious man leaves it there after being chased by the Mafia. He foolishly decides to keep the money and its not long until a cold faced hitman (brilliantly played by Scott Glenn - Backdraft) is on his case. From here begins a deadly game of cat and mouse. Its intense stuff alright and includes one particular torture scene which makes Michael Madsen's ear slicing incident in 'Reservoir Dogs' look like an extract from Sesame Street!. John Glover (Gremlins 2) is a stand out as Glenn's crackpot associate.
