Storyline

A terminally ill man gets his buddy to bust him out of the hospital. But, in the process, the duo antagonizes a city policeman, who trails them to the boonies surrounding their hometown. The local sheriff and their lady friend (who think more kindly of the pair) strive to find the fugitives before the less-compassionate posse, which includes a deranged, rifle-toting foe of the two. Written by Kim Williams <KDWms@webtv.net>

Quite Boring
11 October 2003 | by Sic CoyoteSee all my reviews

I must admit to start with I only got this movie because 1:It had Jeffrey Combs on the cover and 2:It was £2.99.

The movie started off quite dull with some funny event occurring occasionally through the film, I didn't really feel for any of the characters as most didn't have much depth, in fact the character with the most 'character' was the one played by Jeffrey Combs.

The film could have been saved by editing, if about 10-15 mins were trimmed out of the film, removing unnecessary dialogue and silences. This would have made the film better and easier to sit through, as it was I found myself watching it in fast forward(which is easier as it was a dvd with uncompressed audio so you can still hear the audio).

The Cover of the UK dvd makes it out to be something it's not, it tries to sell it as some kind of thriller which it isn't with the tag line "Why were they running scared?" which makes no sense in the film.

Overall I would only recommend this to Die-Hard Jeffrey Combs and Rip Torn fans, although I did watch it at normal speed for the last 15 minutes where it actually got quite good.

3/10
