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.

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).

Even though this movie seems to be rather forgotten nowadays, in my opinion, from all the movies directed by Sam Raimi, it is actually probably the best one he has delivered if you put aside the Evil Dead trilogy.

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.

" Three blue-collar acquaintances come across millions of dollars in lost cash and make a plan to keep their find from the authorities, but it isn't long before complications and mistrust weave their way into the plan. Based on the novel by Scott B. Smith, the film didn’t do all that well in theatres, critics the movie to actually not that bad."

The Savoy Pictures Story (26 movies items)

"Released on December 11, 1998 Savoy actually fully produced this movie and it became the company's final production. However, Savoy remains uncredited in the final release print and the rights were picked up by Paramount Pictures. An acclaimed crime drama/thriller that just might have turned Savoy's fortunes around had the company not closed a year before its release. Produced in association with Mutual Film Company, BBC Films, Toho and Newmarket Capital Group."
