Product Description

Hard Cash

From the Back Cover

Thomas (Christian Slater, "Windtalkers") pulled off the perfect crime, he and his team of master thieves (Bokeem woodbine, "Dead Presidents"), (Daryl Hannah, "Splash"), (Verne Troyer, "Austin Powers 2&3"), (Balthazar Getty, "Lost Highway") got away with millions. The problem is, it's all FBI marked money that dirty agent Mark Cornell (Val Kilmer, "Red Planet") was trying to launder for himself. Now, Cornell's forcing him to mastermind one of the greatest heists in history. Failure is not an option if Thomas ever wants to see his family alive again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Half-Baked February 10, 2003
Christian Slater reunited with Val Kilmer reminds us of the high tension action flick "True Romance." But no more is seen the burning power generated by the Tarantino-scripted film; instead, in "Hard Cash" you only see a banal B-action flick with wasted opportunities for any of those involved.
The story is rather simple: master thief Slater and his cohorts attempt to do their final job as Kubrick's "The Killing," but realize that the money they get are all marked by FBI. They have to wait another day for money laundering, but while waiting, crooked agent Val Kilmer steps in, to extort money from them.
As the mildly interesting opening of the film shows, "Hard Cash" has slightly comical flavor, not taking itself so seriously. OK, but with what little humor in there soon gone away, the film goes on and on without much to boast of. Though the heist scenes are shot competently, the suspense comes very few between the acts, so even its 90 minutes running time looks very tedious. And obligatory explosions and car chase are, to be honest, very cheap.
The leading players, including Slater, Kilmer, and Daryl Hannah might not impress you, but the supporting cast are interesting -- see, for example, Balthazar Getty ("Lost Highway"), Bokeem Woodbine ("3000 Miles to Graceland"), Sara Downing (TV's "Roswell"), William Forsythe ("The Rock"), and Verne Troyer (Mini-Me of "Austin Powers" sequels). But they have no moment to really show something they can, possibly except for Troyer's "contigency plan" and even he, or always reliable Getty or Forsythe cannot save the show. So, what can you expect from the leads, who plays the characters we don't care much?
Even Kilmer's and Slater's fans would be dismayed with their "acting," because they don't show any. Those who like them should wait for a Lenny Harlin film "Mindhunters" where they are sure to live up with our expectations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inconceivable June 20, 2002
How did the production company manage to land two of the best actor's in recent cinema history? Not to mention, Darryl Hannah, Bokeem Woodbine, and Balthazar Getty. The script was dull, the plot was unoriginal, and the production quality was very low-budget. The only reason I gave it two stars was Val Kilmer's portrayal of a very eccentric character which was marginally entertaining. Don't buy this movie, don't rent this movie, don't ever watch this movie. Trust me, you don't want to equate this movie to Val Kilmer's or Christian Slater's acting careers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to make the donuts July 11, 2004
Thieves steal $2 million of marked money and become involved with crooked FBI agent Val Kilmer. Cristian Slater plays chief thief who must foil Kilmer's plans and save his daughter.
HARD CASH is pretty dreadful. How dreadful? It was originally released as RUN FOR THE MONEY. Films don't change their titles for nothing.
The acting is okay, but there are a half-dozen or so too many why-are-we-doing-this scenes. The usually reliable Val Kilmer walks through the movie with a dazed and confused expression on his face. Slater is a little bit more on top of things, but he's saddled with a wise beyond her years daughter who doubles as a card sharp and is forced to read lines like "I just can't live like this anymore." Not your typical eight-year-old declaration.
Granted, not many movies have dart gun toting midgets crawling out of toilets, but that happens before the opening credits are run. After that it's all downhill. Pass this one by.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slater and Kilmer keep this puppy alive October 22, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
starts off good with Slater, Troyer, and two others including his girlfriend try to rob William Forsythes place but it ends up with Slater going into the slammer but then he comes back some months or years later and pulls off a heist that involves Bookem Woodbine, Balthazat Getty, Matthew Schulze and Daryl Hannah, but the problem is that Val Kilmer, a corrupt cop was going to do the heist. all im saying is that Slater and Kilmer do a great cat and mouse game but they should'nt of been in this mess. with wooden characters, but sometimes good action, specifically when the team turns on one another and kills each other over the money. could've been better with different leads

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment July 5, 2002
By A Customer
When I saw the cover, I thought to myself, "Why haven't I ever heard of this movie?". Now I know why. I was hoping that it would be an action packed thriller. Christian Slater and Bokeem Woodbine were both in "3000 Miles to Graceland. Despite getting slammed by the critics, I thought it was a good movie and was hoping this might be similar. Slater and Val Kilmer were both in "True Romance", which happens to be one of my favorites. My hopes were extremely high. To say I was disappointed, would be an understatement. The dialogue was hokey, the car scenes were hilarously bad, and the movie in general is awful. Do NOT buy this movie, do NOT rent it, and your time would be wasted if you watched it anywhere. I own a pretty good size DVD collection and this is one movie I feel embarrassed to admit I bought. I can't even find someone to pay to take it off my hands. You have been warned.
