Christian Slater and Minnie Driver battle the elements in this slim, waterlogged but fast-paced adventure that throws the bad guys together with the forces of nature after a massive flood envelops a small town on the same night that a daring robbery takes place. Utterly preposterous in places (why can movie characters hold their breath underwater for about 20 minutes and we mere humans can't?), it nonetheless zips along merrily and offers the bonus of impressively tongue-in-cheek performances from Morgan Freeman and Randy Quaid.

Plot Summary

Action thriller starring Morgan Freeman and Christian Slater. An armoured car transporting $3 million breaks down in the flood-stricken town of Huntingburg, Indiana, and is held up by a gang. One of the guards manages to escape with the money, but he is closely pursued through the rising water by the robbers.
