If I remember correctly, I have seen this remake before the original version starring Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw. In my opinion, the first thing we should take into account is that whether the original version was good enough to require a remake or not? I’m not so sure. I mean, I enjoyed the Steve McQueen vehicle and it was a rather entertaining flick but the story was nothing really mind-blo... read more

Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich "business"-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife to tell him that he's for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison.

Failed movie franchises part 2 (108 movies items)

" Note: I never saw this movie, the movie was a remake of a classic movie from the early 70's. It look like that this movie was planned to become a series of movies which never happen most likely due to the bad reviews and it was a box office failure. Almost 20 years later, no one try to remake The Getaway again. "

"Alec Baldwin's presence in this remake of the 1972 heist movie is rather unimpressive. Kim Bakinger, James Woods, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Michael Madsen make the film a bit more interesting, but even so... Language: American English Feb. 2013"

“If I remember correctly, I have seen this remake before the original version starring Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw. In my opinion, the first thing we should take into account is that whether the original version was good enough to require a remake or not? I’m not so sure. I mean, I enjoyed the Steve McQueen vehicle and it was a rather entertaining flick but the story was nothing really mind-blowing. Still, I have to admit, it was pretty neat to have Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger in the title roles. It is also rather funny to think that, back then, Baldwin was trying to be the macho leading man whereas he has nowadays built up a career as a funny supporting actor. There was here also a pretty neat supporting cast (Michael Madsen, James Woods, David Morse, Jennifer Tilly, Richard Farnsw” read more

"13.03. Digibox Kertakäyttö viihdettä, jossa tarpeeksi toimintaa ja jännitystä. Woods ja Madsen vetävät pisimmän korren suorituksista. Perus äksöni. "

"Olipahan harvinaisen typerä elokuva, joka ei edes etene kovinkaan verkkaisesti. Alec Baldwin on roolissaan aivan hukassa. Samaa voi myös sanoa Kim Basingerista. Ainoa hyvä asia tässä koko paskassa on Michael Madsen, joka on kuin luotu psykopaatin roolin. En odottanut tältä mitään, enkä myöskään pahemmin saanut tältä mitään. Uusintakatseluarvoa ei ole. Uudelleen katsellessa tuskin Madsenkaan olisi enää roolissaan kovin vaakuttava. Nyt tämän kaiken paskan keskellä hän oli se"

"Jim Thompsonin jännäristä on jo Sam Peckinpah tehnyt 1970-luvulla elokuvan. Tämä uudempi näkemys kirjasta ei tuo juuri uutta Peckinpahin elokuvaan verrattuna. Tarina kulkee samoja latuja ja monet kohtauksetkin ovat samoja. Toki tähänkin on saatu tiukkaa meininkä ja ihan kohtuullista dialogia. Näyttelyäkään ei voi haukkau edes Baldwinin ja Basingerin kohdalla."
