Palmetto (1998)

#100


The previews were rather deceiving but at least it was still watchable, thanks to Harrelson being the badass he is.

Not the role that got Daniel Craig cast as James Bond.

Derek Jacobi pulls off Bacon pretty great.

One of the greatest actors of all time can't pull of this snoozy, lazy crime picture. He and Hackman are excellent, but nobody else really works in this and the story is so uninteresting it can't be helped.

A talented young cast carries what could have been a classic outlaw film; but the themes and pacing forces this to be a mostly forgotten film and a classic Hollywood failure. I still enjoyed it as wannabe outlaw myself.
