This was a very entertaining, if morally way below par, action movie which consistently keeps your attention with intense scenes. Kim Bassinger probably looked as good as she ever looked which is saying a lot. She has one of the steamiest scenes I&#39;ve ever seen on a mainline film (my tape was the &quot;unrated&quot; version) but at least it was with her real-life husband (at the time) Alec Baldwin.<br/><br/>This re-make of the 1972 film also has Michael Madsen, James Woods, Mike Morse and Jennifer Tilley - all playing sleazy characters. They are so bad they make Baldwin &amp; Bassinger look like monks. This movie is not exactly Mary Poppins. There&#39;s almost too much of a mean edge to it....almost. Perhaps I enjoy ogling Bassinger too much to can this movie for its baseness.<br/><br/>Whatever, this entertains to the degree that it makes it a very quick two hours. There is no way you could get bored watching this film.

The action scenes are top notch. Maybe I&#39;m just a sucker for colorful characters and the bank heist angle is well done. Best of all is Alec Baldwin&#39;s character, Doc. Baldwin and the rest of the cast really deliver their lines with panache.<br/><br/>Bank jobs, car chase, cat-and-mouse in a four story hotel, steamy sex, crazy characters.... what else do you want?

I usually hate it, when they go back and look for movies to redo just to earn some cheap cash. <br/><br/>In this case I feel differently though.<br/><br/>It begins with the cast. A lot of (then) hot actors like Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Michael Madsen, James Woods... Need I go on?<br/><br/>Also they kept most of the basic plot and elevated it to a new level. The new version is bolder and should appeal to a new audience.<br/><br/>It&#39;s a classic tale of deception, love, and betrayal.<br/><br/>First our Hero, Doc (Baldwin) get&#39;s thrown in Jail. After a year his wife (his back then actual wife Kim Basinger) makes a deal with the crook turned respected businessman Jack Benyon. He&#39;s to rob a racetrack. For this Benyon already assembled a team. That includes the guy that was kind of responsible for Doc getting sent to jail for a year. <br/><br/>The heist goes off almost without a hitch but from that moment on everything goes south. first Rudy (Madsen) kills the 4th guy involved in the thing and then tries to off Doc and his wife. Doc&#39;s of course faster with the gun and hurts Rudy badly. He survives though, because he wore a bulletproof vest, which he usually doesn&#39;t. Then doc and his wife head up to Benyons place to split up the money. Benyon (Woods) of course has other plans. Plans that involve Docs Wife (a really hot looking Basinger). But she opts to go with her husband and kills Benyon. So no they not only have Benyons Guys on their tail but also the very pi**ed off Rudy. <br/><br/>If I were to continue telling you the plot there would be no need for you to watch the movie. <br/><br/>Just let me tell you that it&#39;s a great remake that tops the original in several aspects. The acting is top notch by almost all the major characters. The action is fast paced and very violent. (I base this on the unrated HD-DVD).<br/><br/>So if you have a few bucks lying around. Get this movie, I am pretty sure you can get it for under $10 in about every big store..
