Dodge is a computer hacker serving a prison term; Piper is a tough guy. They end up chained together, and flee during a chain-gang escape attempt that goes bad. An adventure plot ensues, involving a missing floppy disk, an attractive woman that assists them, a sinister Federal marshal, an honest cop, and the Cuban mafia.Written by

We gotta get into a rhythm.
What the fuck you know about rhythm?
I'm a foster child, raised by the state.
What's your point?
There was this caretaker who was like a father to me. His name was Titus. He taught me that everybody lives their life according to a rhythm. You make love to a rhythm. Your heart beats to a rhythm. If we're gonna run together, we gotta get into the same rhythm.
I got your rhythm, convict.

There is a longer version of the film which runs 105 minutes and features more footage. This cut features:
A love scene involving Laurence Fishburne and Salma Hayek which is only hinted in the final theatrical version.
A longer more developed scene in which Rico and his goons break into Brittany Powell's apartment in search of the diskette.
The motorcycle chase substantally longer and shows the demise of Rico after a showdown with Fishburne, which is completely cut out of the theatrical and home video versions.
As with many movies, as long as the viewer doesn't read too much into the movie you will do OK! Its a fun fast paced road movie-ish, fugitive styled chase movie.
It's well filmed, and slickly edited for a low budget chase flick.The acting is simply and solidly done even if the dialogue is a tad cheesy. Steven Baldwin is the token down at the heel hero, Laurence Fishburne is cool as the mentor type character, pulling the hero out of one fix after another. Salma Hayek is as stunning as ever but the best character is Gib played by Will Hatton, a highly likable character whos putting the puzzle together as the heros run around.
Not a classic but worth a late night look see when you get home from the pub with a bag of munchies.
