Slim and Queen's first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, Slim takes the officer's gun and shoots him in self-defence. Now labelled cop killers in the media, Slim and Queen feel that they have no choice but to go on the run and evade the law. When a video of the incident goes viral, the unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people all across the countryWritten by

Uncle Earl, Naomi, Queen and Slim said their goodbyes after torching the Kentucky sheriff's Ford F-350 pickup truck, which was clearly planned. Queen and Slim drove away in Uncle Earl's vintage aqua muscle car. Uncle Earl and Naomi were then left stranded in the middle of nowhere with a very long walk home, and didn't seem to be bothered about it!
They'd earlier mentioned how many cars Uncle Earl had, so Uncle Earl was stupid not to plan better. Surely they should have driven to that location in 3 cars (the truck they were going to burn, the aqua car to be gifted to Queen and Slim, and one of Uncle Earl's many other spare cars). This would have given Uncle Earl and Naomi the possibility of getting back home safely. See more »
You a good lawyer?
I'm an excellent lawyer.
Why do black people always feel the need to be excellent? Why can't we just be ourselves?

What started off as a decent and engaging plot, ended up being a mushy and unnecessarily long dragged out film. This needed at least 30 mins shaved off, especially from the long and dragged out sappy scenes. The whole Bonnie and Clyde theme was ok, but I would've liked more of a story and less of the unconvincing romance. Nevertheless, decent performances and directing.
