Product Description

Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Nikki Reed (The Twilight Saga), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) star in the tough, sexy story of three hit women sent to rural Louisiana to intercept a big money dope deal. But when they get to the near-empty roadside café, bullets blast apart what was supposed to be a simple transaction. It could be a huge, bloody misunderstanding but it might also be a deadly double-cross. Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire) and Academy Award® nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) co-star in this intense crime thriller with a killer twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars A complex Mexican stand-off 9 Dec 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Catch .44 is the story of Mel (Bruce Willis - Setup) - a crime lord in the unspecified deep south. He has sent his all-female hit squad consisting of Tes, Dawn & Kara (respectively; Malin Åkerman - Watchmen, Deborah Ann Woll & Nikki Reed - The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) to a remote diner to intercept a drug-deal.

But when Mel's right hand guy - the chameleonic Ronny (Forest Whitaker - Panic Room) shows up and walks right into the ensuing Mexican standoff between the girls & Mel's man on the ground, Billy (Shea Whigham - The Lincoln Lawyer) nobody is quite sure who is double-crossing who, only one thing is clear; Mel is NOT going to be happy when he shows up...

Catch .44 is an odd film, mainly because we see the end at the beginning. We are thrown in at the deep end, understanding nothing of how the characters came to be in this predicament, as the flashbacks roll, they all bring us back to this scene and we see the same scenario from a multitude of camera angles again & again, adding something each time around. It's an intriguing technique that allows us to see the genesis of each of the characters reasons for being there. Upsettingly, Mel's opening line reveals who the bad guy is in all this, removing some of the tension but this is only crystal-clear in retrospect and is probably easily missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars FAKE GRINDHOUSE COMPROMISE 23 Aug 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The title "Catch .44" appears to be some clever play on the phrase Catch 22, i.e. as in a double catch 22 as well as a .44 caliber bullet. The movie really isn't that clever, but pretends to be. I was confused by the beginning. The film opens with Bruce Willis (Mel) talking to an unseen person who he has worked with for seven years but doesn't trust...cue credits. The music is Mexican-Cowboy grindhouse stuff during the credits. We see Tes driving...Then we see three women in a diner, they are talking about living in a man's world , the apparent theme of the film, when they attempt to rob the place and one of them gets shot...more credits and the music is "Fox on the Run." We have ventured into some kind of "Pulp Fiction" diner scene flashback scenario. The names on the girls flash on the screen by their face, which has come to be the rule rather than the exception in modern action films.

Tes, the leader of the group, works at an exotic dance bar. They work for a drug dealer named Mel. The whole diner scene we saw earlier is about a drug deal. While there are cell phones, Mel talks on a red rotary dial phone to Tes in a remote phone booth, apparently something that still exists in Louisiana.
While the girls are driving to the restaurant, there is some subplot action that is going on that appears unrelated.

The movie swaps back and forth between the restaurant shoot-out action and various flashbacks leading up to the scene. The film is supposed to be a Tarantino style grindhouse, but doesn't really work that well as the characters aren't that great. There is no clever grindhouse dialouge. The flashback scenes don't work that well. Forest Whitaker uses different accents during the movie which doesn't appear to be by design. The movie lacked great action.

F-bomb, sex talk, brief strip club nudity

1.0 out of 5 stars Expletive deleted 25 April 2014
By Daz22
Format:Blu-ray
I would not recommend this turgid film to anybody. Every other word is a swear word beginning with 'F', there is no action in this action movie and up until the time I ejected the disc very little to appreciate why the film was made at all. This was a mistake on my part in placing the film on my rental list, a total waste of viewing time.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright 16 April 2014
By Richard
Format:DVD
This film kind of reminds me of the glut of violent thrillers that emerged after Pulp Fiction in the mid 90's. A solid cast of known names, flashy directing and a non linear plot that jumps between time frames. Unlike many of those imitators this flick is not too bad.

A trio of young ladies (Malin Akerman included) take a job from their drug dealer boss to find out who's moving in on his patch. They aim to infiltrate a drug deal at a remote truck stop but things dont go according to plan and a tense series of events ensues also involving Forest Whitakers "delivery guy".

The script is reasonably punchy and it's well acted all round. Crosses and double crosses take place and there's enough bloody action to keep you involved. Bruce Willis pops up in one of his now trademark fleeting roles as the drug dealer in question before popping off again to count his wages. Cheers Brucie. Anyway, a decent film, worth a spin.

One of the worst films I've ever seen. Poor story line, poor acting. Poor attempt at copying a Tarantino film.
