Editorial Reviews

Harley (Jennifer Esposito), a tough ex-con, embarks on a journey to reclaim hidden money she stole from a local mob boss. On the way, she meets Roy (Robert Patrick), a mild-mannered video store owner who is discontent with his ordinary life. Harley figures Roy would make the perfect accomplice, and reels him into her scheme. Before long, the two are running from the mob and heading for the border -- and neither is sure they can trust the other.

I'll be honest. What got me watching this movie in the first place? Well, I was flipping channels and caught a quick glimpse of Jennifer Espinito, Just as if she were standing on the side of the highway hitchiking, and I slammed on the brakes to stop and pick her up, my channel surfing stopped dead right there!!!!

Not expecting a hell of alot from a movie she were starring in, I decided to check a bit of it out, since I was lucky enough to catch it right at the beginning of the movie.

To my pleasant surprise my interest was grabbed and held right from the start. The storyline seemed interesting enough, the acting very good, and it truly just kept getting better, and more interesting, and entertaining.

Robert patrick and Jennifer Espinito had great chemistery throughout the movie. Being a movie you've never heard of, you'd figure, or expect it to end up being a movie that gets to hard to believe. Though this movie seemed as if it were going to go that way, they could not have wrapped it up better.

as the credits begin rolling, you'll find yourself sitting there, eyebrows raised, and saying out loud "That was a really great movie!"

IT WAS! AND IT IS WELL WORTH CHECKING OUT!!!!

BlackFlash is a good movie when you are just bored and want to sit down and watch a flick. There is a lot of good twist and turns which are exectued really well.
What makes this movie is the performances from a very talented cast. Robert Patrick is the "hero" and does a great job with his character through out the film. Jennifer Espizito does a great job as the "Femme Fatale" of movie. This girl is so much more then another pretty face in Hollywood and I wish other directors will notice her talents very soon.
Melissa Joan Hart (TV's Sabrina) has a very small role in this movie which is a bummer. The very talented Hart is one of the best up and coming actress and once she gets out of that Sabrina TV show is going to be a face you see in many major films in the years to come. I did love her role was the mortition who uses her Crime Boss's dead enemies bodies to smuggle cash. Creative idea, but wouldn't be better if it was drugs or something? Why cash? Dogs can't smell cash. Dogs can smell drugs, but will police think twice if a dog goes a crazy on a dead body? Would they even check the body if it has drugs? Or will they think its just in the casket? Sorry my twisted little mind is wondering here.
I enjoyed this movie. That is all I can say about it. If you are expecting OSCAR stuff then don't bother. If you pass this movie up because you don't see any "Star" actors then its your mistake.

I was quite surprised by this movie - I never heard of it before, and going thru the movie section of the TV guide, decided to tape it since I saw it had Robert Patrick...I forgot I had it until several months later, and started watching it one morning while I was getting ready for work. I got so involved in it I was late! Some things are really weird, in a funny sort of way, but the end total took me off guard. Not an Oscar winner, but if you like Robert Patrick, this is a definite buy.

Film Noir takes up a sizable chunk of American film history. Now and then somebody takes a stab at resurrecting it with varying results. This one has all the elements and is a decent effort. It does, though, lack something at its core.

Here's the scoop. Robert Patrick owns a video rental store in some bust-out town in Arizona. He's doing some soul searching and needs to take a few days off. He gets in his Jeep and rides. He picks up a hitchhiking Jennifer Esposito who is fresh out of prison. She was hooked up with a connected guy and the two were working a plan to skim company money. Now she's out and needs a fall guy to help retrieve the dough. Guess who said fall guy is.

As I said, this has all the right elements. A 'Femme Fatale', double and triple crossing, stolen money and ruthless bad guys. But maybe it's all too by rote. It were as though someone was saying we need this, this, this and this. Though there were some surprises here in the plot, other times I pretty much knew where things were headed. The characters were written well enough and the casting was decent. Esposito is always great to look at and she does a good enough job with the role. Robert Patrick, likewise, was good enough. Colm Meaney is always worth note and he doesn't disappoint here. His was one of the better written characters, with his compulsion with Christmas and Christmas related Kitsch. Vyto Ruginis is a real find as the motel manager. The ultimate slimeball. The writers were spot on with certain things and lacking in others. The directing, editing, music and other aspects of production were all up to par with the material. It all just falls a bit short.

This is an eminently watchable movie that keeps the viewer engaged, and it's a tad better than the three stars I gave it. Sit back and enjoy. Just don't expect a life changing experience.

Good Chemistry mixes with Robert Patrick and Jennifer Esposito in this thriller flick like a video store owner and a bad ass chick like when I first saw Jennifer Esposito in this film I nearly fainted because she is a sexy actress and character I loved the film and her acting from then on. Well worth watching.
