Storyline

Can you trust anyone? A corrupt judge is about to rule against the expansion of an Indian casino in the Mohave and needs cover: he tells the tribe's chief that the FBI has an undercover agent on the judge's staff, so the expansion must be on hold. The chief hires a hit man to kill the law clerk. The clerk makes a run for it and manages through a series of botched thefts to end up with the bag of money meant for the hit man. A corrupt cop, a degenerate security guard, a hapless bus station clerk, a scheming waitress, and the hit man himself all want the bag - and the chief and the judge want the clerk dead. Is there any way he gets out of the desert alive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a Plot...You mean there WAS one???
31 August 2003 | by cotton-candySee all my reviews

Never in my life, have I ever seen such a movie-- a movie void of ANY plot, or substance at all. Not to mention, I lived in the beautiful small town of 29 Palms. It is the home of a Marine Corp Base. There are jobs, stores, homes, churches, bars, and yes, even, it's own High School and several elementaries too-- Did I mention it has a playhouse with talented actors? Better than this movie produced! Have you seen "Plan 9 from Outer Space, (1959) With Bela Lugosi? Even that one was better, and Bela died while it was being made! I can not believe I actually Paid over 3 bucks to see it! Can I get my money back? To all those who responded before I, what movie were YOU watching? There as no editing, the actors, while I have seen most of them in some GREAT films, must have done this one for free...it was obvious. I would have worn a mask in this one guys. P.U.! If you really liked this movie...You must live in a third world country and has never seen excellence.
