Three petty thieves who the police believe to be major criminals are chased into a basement bar where they take five hostages including all the bar employees. The rest of the movie deals with the cops lurking outside the bar while the trio try to get hold of the situation inside.Written by

For some reason I really wanted to see this when it first came out. Whether it was the intriguing trailer, or because Kevin Spacey was involved, or because there wasn't much else on I don't know. Funny thing is I never got round to seeing it until yesterday after I picked it up on VHS for $1.
The movie has a decent cast, but a very slow storyline. 3 petty criminals get involved in a bungle, kill 2 cops and need to find a hideout. They stumble across a basement bar (think of "Cheers") early in the morning and quickly take the few drinkers and workers hostage. They are soon trapped with only one entrance and cops swarming. How will they escape? See it and find out (or read a review with spoilers and save yourself one and a half hours).
