Did You Know?


(at around 30 mins) Christian Slater pulls the trigger on his gun, but it only goes click. Semi-automatics are designed so the slide (top part of the gun) stays locked in the rearward position when empty. This condition would have alerted him that he was already out of bullets before bothering to shoot. See more »


Hendricks: The guy who sold it to them said they had a couple suitcases. Got on the freeway headed east. It's a bright orange '57 Chevy.
Pollen: A bright orange '57 Chevy? We'll never find them now.

User Reviews

Good Drama, Action and a Thriller
5 April 2008 | by Pratik112See all my reviews

They say that blood money is never good and this movie proves just that.

Duke and Amber,a young couple who are engaged, are struggling to survive, when one night a corrupt cop, who will stop at nothing to get his money back, shoots their neighbour, who are also a bunch of thugs who had looted the house several times in order to finance their habits. On the night concerned, Duke, who has purchased a gun, upon returning, finds the thugs dead and the corrupt cop wounded on the floor. He takes the money and informs his fiancée that they are moving.

Directed by Keith Samples, written by Brian Strassman, Love Lies Bleeding stars Christian Slater, Jenna Dewan and Brian Geraghty. This is like modern day "Bonnie and Clyde" with the exception that there's emotions involved. But never the less it still manages to captivate audience attention and it is worth watching.

Conclusion: A good one to watch.
