Goofs

After Dodge tells Piper that he donated 20 million of the 25 million he stole to a charity, a cop car passes with it's sirens on. Piper then tells Dodge, "Nice, Robin Hood but we gotta fled". Fled is past tense, making his statement grammatically incorrect. See more »

Quotes

Dodge: We gotta get into a rhythm.
Piper: What the fuck you know about rhythm?
Dodge: I'm a foster child, raised by the state.
Piper: What's your point?
Dodge: 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.
Piper: I got your rhythm, convict.

Very, very average
13 February 2002 | by Gubby-AllenSee all my reviews

As average a film as you'll se. Not much to say on it. Starts off very well with much promise but once they unchain themselves turns into a run of the mill action film, nothing different. One or two of the subplots, the romances especially, seemed trivial. It may even of been a better story had Fishburne not been a copper and a different plot.

Quite why they didn't shoot the chain apart when they had the gun I don't know either, but they chose to drive, still attached. No character is especially warming, but there's a good cast, nothing wrong with the acting & great to see old Dex Dexter, Michael Nader in a role, as he was brilliant in Dynasty & never looked even slightly out of place here.

Better than it's 4.9 rating, but not by much.

6/10.
