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).

Movie Reviews (part 10) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Thriller that could be seen as a dark cousin to "Fargo" but without the dry humor. Perfect brother-team of Bill Paxton and Billy Bob Thornton and a perfect cameo appearance by Gary Cole. I love the direction by Sam Raimi and the creepy music too. The Downs: It is a shame it is not the first in a series of dark tales from this village as it is a interesting universe we get to feel."

"Simplicity until it all goes wrong. Simple people stubble upon piles of cash and of course get into all sorts of trouble because of it which inevitably leads to murder."

"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."
