Film, Thrillers
Poor old Elmore Leonard, always getting dud movies made of his books. In this case, he's partly responsible, since he co-wrote the script, which sees Reynolds as an ex-con bent on avenging the death of a buddy and getting involved with the drug-dealing low-lifers of Miami. It's deeply flawed by Reynolds' less than lustruous but screen-hogging performance, by a tortuous but dull plot, and by leaden direction. One for completists only.
