Storyline Heading
Longtime partners abduct a young woman carrying the child of a wealthy Southwestern couple. But kidnapping proves to be much more complicated, than other felonies they've committed. Tensions rise between them and as the moment for the ransom exchange approaches, they must battle not only well-armed opponents, but their own conflicted emotions as well.

Drama - Young adults, particularly males, stand the best chance of enjoying this violent thriller. Older viewers may appreciate the plot twists of the piece, but the carnage could be a major turnoff. The bloodiness of the film make it inappropriate for young children.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
With his directorial debut The Way of the Gun, Christopher McQuarrie, Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Usual Suspects, has said that he "set out to make a crime film in a way that no one would ever ask me to make another crime film again." A number of critics and viewers will doubtlessly hope no one does after witnessing all the buckets of blood shed in this quasi-neo-Western. But if one looks past the carnage, one can see a thought-provoking, solidly constructed entertainment further distinguished by fine performances.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Longtime partners Parker (Ryan Phillippe) and Longbaugh (Benicio Del Toro) are hoping for a quick and non-violent pay-off when they abduct Robin (Juliette Lewis), a young woman carrying the child of a wealthy Southwestern couple. But kidnapping proves to be much more complicated, logistically and psychologically, than other felonies they've committed. Parker is increasingly drawn to the mysterious Robin, whose imminent delivery date awakens strong feelings in him. Tensions rise between Parker and Longbaugh, a ruthlessly decisive man who knows Parker's sentimental impulses could land them in big trouble. As the moment for the ransom exchange approaches, Parker and Longbaugh must battle not only well-armed opponents, but their own conflicted emotions as well.
