Review

Our Score
Demian Lichtenstein utilises the brusque visual and verbal style of Reservoir Dogs in this tired crime comedy thriller. He also over-indulges in the camera pyrotechnics that characterised his time as a director of commercials and pop videos. Kurt Russell (who played Elvis Presley in the 1979 TV movie Elvis) gets to dress like the King once more, as the leader of a gang planning a raid on a Las Vegas casino. Kevin Costner, meanwhile, plays determinedly against type as a foul-mouthed sociopath. On the whole, this is a crass and calculatingly excessive bid for cult kudos.

Summary

Crooks plan to net a huge jackpot when they rob a Las Vegas casino in the middle of an Elvis convention. But when the thieves finally catch a glimpse of the haul, they double-cross each other and end up in a frantic cross-country chase as one of the gang makes off with all the loot. Crime comedy, starring Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Courteney Cox, Christian Slater, David Arquette, Ice-T and Kevin Pollak.
