102. Truth or Consequences, N.M.
Watched Truth or Consequences tonight. It was ok. The movie seemed to borrow pretty heavily from other criminals on the run films. I defiantly got a bit of a Bonnie and Clyde feel as well. It was interesting enough to keep me watching for most of it.
The movie starts of miserably. A long clip showing Ray getting out of prison to a nice ballad. Way to long and it just isn’t needed. Kiefer Sutherland makes up for this (he’s the director) by basically having the heist take place within ten minutes so things start rolling pretty quickly and the pace is nice until the last forty minutes or so. Things get a bit slow and boring. I lost track of what exactly the characters were trying to achieve. Really it seemed like they wanted to make a movie with some crooks on the run and they just didn’t give a shit about everything else in the story. They just threw some shit in to show how they got on the road.
It’s a decent flick. The acting is pretty decent, but I can’t say I’m yearning to see it again.
