Good opening, terrible film
15 January 2000 | by Meredith-7See all my reviews

The first part of this film is not too bad for an action, we get the normal buddy jokes and some great lines from money train carer Robert Blake. But the film as a whole is fairly poor. It turns fairly serious after about 45 minutes and is generally down hill all the way after that. There really is not much to recommend this film, except for the scenes with Robert Blake, who, in his over the top performance, delivers some comic lines. Jennifer Lopez's character Grace has very little to do, and just really does not seem to fit in or be particularly believable in the role she is meant to play. More fine tuning of the script may have been a good idea, but then they probably thought who needs a good script or any type of continuity when we have two very bankable stars? Meaning even though the film is bad, people will unfortunately still pay money to see it. A total waste of time & money.
