I'm surprised that this film isn't more popular as it keeps the viewer engaged throughout. The film is basically a road movie based around an inept criminal gang, fleeing from a botched robbery which is revisited in flashbacks. The vehicle, a 1970 Chrysler Newport, looks great if slightly incongruous, but is still an essential cast member. The group dynamic is riddled with tensions, incompatibility, anger and frustration almost totally due to the character of 'Chino' (John Leguizamo). This guy could only be described as 'stupidity' and 'arrogance' personified. A Saint would surely have lost his patience with him, via a 9mm bullet! 'Natalie' the sultry hitchhiker (Linda Fiorentino) adds the glamour. In all this film should be appreciated by anyone who likes, A GOOD STORY, A GREAT CAST and A VERY COOL LOOKING CAR, all welded together to produce a very entertaining film.
