Quotes

Curtis: It's a game out here. Everybody who plays the game understands the rules. I certainly understand the rules. The cop understands the rules. He's the good guy, I'm the bad guy, it's his job to catch me, it's my job not to get caught. And I will do everything I have to to stay ahead of the game. I've been to prison. I ain't going back. Nobody's messing with my liberty again.

Seen it all before - but it's still entertaining
26 July 2001 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Another heist-gone-wrong movie. It's been done before - criminals are cool etc. However this is still pretty good and thrilling all the way through. It is rarely slow or dull. All the actors are good with Gallo really bringing his character to life and making you feel for him. Sutherland does a good job of directing and even plays the crazy killer well.

The film evens tackles the issue of us viewing these people as cool - not something many do - and challenges us on our admiration of them (even if it is on a basic level).

Yes, you seen it before - but that doesn't mean it's totally unoriginal or not entertaining to watch.
