Made in 1987, The Killing Time is the kind of unambitious, low-budget crime thriller that Roger Corman would have produced in the 50s. It stars B-movie veterans Beau Bridges and Joe Don Baker (Walking Tall), plus then newcomers Kiefer Sutherland and Michael Madsen (Resevoir Dogs). The story is basically a Double Indemnity retread set in sleepytown California. The story has some implausible parts and they could have thought the story out a bit better, but I enjoyed seeing a lot of good actors work together in this one, and I liked that the movie ended with a fistfight over a pistol on a rural California beach. Also, I liked that the Kiefer Sutherland's character has no name and his past and his motives remain unexplained at the end of the film.
I realize this film was not well received by critics when it came out, but I think fans of these actors and fans of The Fast and the Furious (1954) will enjoy it. The DVD has no extras.
