With no help coming, and as things become more and more hopeless, it soon becomes apparent that there is more at stake than it first seems. The two kidnappers have their own agenda, and it's not a pleasant one. Starring Michael Madsen and William Baldwin, 2 Graves In The Desert is a cold thriller set on the blazing road to Las Vegas, provoking the ultimate question - is there any way the hostages can escape alive?

Fairly horrendous
20 March 2020 | by latinfineartSee all my reviews

The thing about William Baldwin is that just his presence and hi smirk is somewhat entertaining to watch. The problem with Michael Madsen is that he brings a smugness to every role that got tired 20 years ago. And it has become very, very difficult to watch him for the past two decades. There's really not much to this film. Not much of a story, incredibly claustrophobic, and there's really just not much there. I would say it's a Hollywood version of an empty suit. Please spend your time seeking entertainment elsewhere. Do yourself a favor.
