My rating: 6.5/10
Will I watch it again? No.
When I saw the opening credits loaded with all kinds of fun actors I was certain I was in for a good time. As they quickly came onto the screen it was getting better and better...that is until some of them died off pretty early. Bummer. It's not a bad little revenge picture and having a cast like this really helps sell it. I'm a sucker for flicks that have folks being hunted down and killed in the woods and I was disappointed that this wasn't one of them. You know, the bad guy city gangsters find themselves in the hills of Kentucky being chased down by hound dogs and bare-footed hillbillies. Instead it almost all takes place in Chicago. The ending is pretty silly but it is entertaining. The real fun is seeing a lot of young faces of top current actors. Oh, and seeing Patrick Swayze play a Chicago cop that dresses like Indiana Jones.
