This is a brilliant film from beginning to end. One of the best psychological thrillers to this day, you won't want to be missing out on this one.

Bill Paxton plays a hardware store manager, Hank, who seems from the outside like a mild-mannered guy who would never do anything wrong or against the law. That all changes from one trip to the cemetery with his brother, Jacob, (Billy Bob... read more

Effective and chilling.

"I wish somebody else had found that money."

Not only is A Simple Plan an absolutely brilliant, gripping psychological thriller but it is also an absorbing examination of human actions during times of desperation. The film is a thought-provoking and meaningful character study based on the popular novel by author Scott B. Smith (who also wrote the adapted screenplay).

Two brothers, one a mild-mannered hardware store manager (Paxton), the other an unemployed slob (Thornton) and a friend stumble onto $4.4 million cash in stolen money. The newfound booty leads Paxton's character, Hank, (with help from his cunning wife) to great lengths to keep the money a secret from local authorities. The three men begin to doubt each other's trust, which leads to shocking results of lies and deceit.

A Complete review of Sam Raimi's work (14 movies items)

" Cast : Bill Paxton, Bridget Fonda, Billy Bob Thornton What was it about? When three blue collar acquaintances come across millions of dollars in lost cash they make a plan to keep their find from the authorities but find complications and mistrust weaving its way into their plan. My two cents: From all the movies directed by Sam Raimi, it is probably the best one he has delivered if you put aside the Evil Dead trilogy. In fact, it was hardly a personal project as Raimi was not even the fir"

"16.6. Tavalliset ihmiset eksyvät rikoksen polulle, eikä yksinkertaisesta suunnitelmasta huolimatta sieltä olekaan helppoa poispääsyä, sillä asiat mutkistuvat yllättäen tasaista tahtia. Leffa on siis Coenin veljeksiltä tuttua tavaraa vakavasti tehtynä. Tunnelma on rautainen, mutta tehoa syö se, ettei matkalle juuri yllätyksiä mahdu. Ollaan ensin pyhmiyksiä, mutta sitten houkutus vie mennessään, hyväksyttävistä keinoista tulee kiistaa, kohta kyräillään rikoskumppaneita vast"

"Turhan vähälle huomiolle jäännyt elokuva ahneudesta ja sen tuhoisista vaikutuksista. Tarina on sinänsä elokuvapuolella jo vanha. Näitä "ahneella on ulosteinen loppu" -elokuvia on tehty jo melkoinen liuta. Mutta silti elokuva on varsin mukaansa tempaava, eikä pitkästymään pääse. Pienestä ennalta-arvattavuudestaan huolimatta, tapahtumat etenevät todella mainiosti. Myös hahmoihin on panostettu hyvin, mitä vielä auttaa hyvät näyttelijät. Loppu on varsin karu."
