Trivia

In one of the early scenes when they take the spare tyre out of the trunk it has a hub cap fitted to the wheel. Normally a spare would not have a hub cap fitted; the hub cap on the wheel with the flat tyre would end up on the spare after it has been fitted. See more »

Only for JCVD
2 November 2014 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

I bought this film only because it was a mix up between western and crime movie, and also because there was JCVD in a supporting character. Besides this, as we say in french, this feature doesn't break three legs to a duck. Nothing exceptional in this forgettable movie. I did appreciate the wink to THE WILD BUNCH; the sheriff's name is Pike Bishop. I watched Sam Peckinpah's masterpiece at least a dozen times in my life, and Pike Bishop sounds quite familiar to my ears.

It's a new wave crime film, in the line of Quentin Tarantino's world, as we watch since the early nineties now.

An acceptable time waster, no more, just for rent, and certainly not for buying.
