With the hidden compartments of his SUV crammed with assault weapons, the young Sinaloan and low-level firearms smuggler, Arnulfo Rubio, attempts to cross the Mexican border, only to catch the eye of the veteran ATF agent, Hank Harris. However--not knowing what to do when he manages to turn the tables on Harris--Rubio decides to drive from America back to Mexico, to turn the captive over to the cartel. Now, the lives of the two men become inextricably intertwined--and as they head to a very dangerous place--the bitter adversaries will have to trust each other to make it out of there alive. Can they return to the United States in one piece?Written by
600 miles at 85 minutes is a relatively short feature, but in terms of screenplay and storyline, it actually seems padded out at that length. Truth to tell, though long on distance according to the title, the movie is brief on story. There's plenty of footage of people travelling in darkly lit vehicles, not saying a lot or saying nothing at all. Consider Tim Roth's Hank Harris ATF officer is really only in about the last hour of the film (at most). It takes close to 30 minutes to set things up, before he arrives on the scene and even then, there hasn't been a lot happening. I'm still not sure what the film is trying to say. That gun-running for cartels is dangerous and sucks in too many young Mexicans seeking the fast road out of poverty. Well, we probably already knew that.
The first act involved Arnulfo's American associate walking in and out of several gun shops, whilst looking at guns and talking to staff. Director Gabriel Ripstein doesn't mind repeating himself, but I'm still a little vague at what he was messaging. Suffice to say we get to the denouement relatively quickly, but that all ends up being somewhat ill-defined too. Kind of inevitable I'd suggest, for what really is a pretty half-baked production that somehow managed to get Tim Roth involved. Give me its bigger-budgeted cousin any day of the week.
