Storyline

It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy. Written by Jeff Cross

Trivia

The head of the studio behind the picture, Elie Samaha, was successfully sued by his German finance partner, Barry Baeres, in 2004 for fraudulently "padding" the budgets of the films he was producing. Baeres company, Intertainment, was paying a percentage for the films, based on the budgets. It is believed, due to Samaha's deception, that Baeres may have paid one hundred million dollars more than he had to. The lawsuit ended up causing the closure of Franchise Pictures. See more »

Rest Of Film Can't Match The Wild Beginning
25 October 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This started with such great style, color and pizazz, I thought I had discovered a real "sleeper," a film I didn't expect to be good that was turning out to be very entertaining.

Well, after the big Las Vegas heist and shortly thereafter when we got a full look at the wild characters and even wilder action scenes, the film settled down and the dialog took over. Unfortunately, that was the film's downfall as the dialog is either incredibly stupid and-or annoying in the second half of this movie. Most annoying was this young kid, you know - the smart-ass kind that says things NO kid his age would say in real life. He also had a foul mouth, and I don't like to see that from young kids.

All the characters in here are pretty much low-life people, the worst being the one played by Kevin Costner, who seemed to relish this role. If you like low-class people, you'll like this story. I gave it points for the style and the fast-moving story, but it's too unpleasant overall for me.
