Elevator Pitch When two old friends learn that the bar they grew up in is to be reposssessed they determine to rob a bank to pay of the debt, but their heist results in them being in possession of a quantity of a new drug, rather than the cash. How can they avoid being killed by the drug lord’s enforcers and still get the money.
Content Fisticuffs in the bar, shoot-outs with handguns and a variety of automatic weapons, some apparently smart verbal exchanges some female nudity. Time spent in the aircraft graveyard.
A View I found the aircraft graveyard amazing, full of everything from Tornadoes to B52s, but otherwise a forgetable outing for the stars. Mickey Rourke said he only did it for the money but surely it was work, even if it did not make a profit. We would be put off I think by the title, which they must have thought of first, and then written the script.
