Product Description

Ten years ago, a bank-robbing team stole $100 million from a Vegas casino. Not  all of them got away. Now, Bishop (Lennie James) is a small-town sheriff, making an honest living… with no memory of his criminal past. But when his old crew rolls into town looking for the loot, the perfect getaway threatens to turn into a nightmare of greed, revenge, and retribution.

I don't think one of these reviewers watched the same movie as I did because the flashbacks were not confusing, the heat was mentioned every 15 minutes or so in the dialogue and there were clearly more than one leather bag during the robbery.

The movie moved along at a nice pace and had enough character development of the townspeople that you had some what of a connection to them. The underlying theme is about redemption and whether it is attainable for different characters. It is also about a small dying town and the question of whether it is worth saving. There is a lot of killing but it is not really that gory. The acting was decent with exception of the woman playing the girlfriend.

The bad guys were definitely bad, but quite stupid. They got caught because of this and then ten years later they go around brazenly gunning down anybody who gets in their way. The idea that these acts will most certainly get them caught again doesn't seem to enter their minds.

In reference to another reviewer's comments, I didn't find the flashbacks confusing. What was interesting was were the money ended up being, considering Pike was near dead when he was found, I doubt seriously there was anyway he could of placed it there.

Format: DVD
The film opens a bit confusing with flashbacks and partial memories. The Rio casino is robbed by "The Rat Pack" in Vegas as they abscond with 10 million dollars in one leather back pack type bag. (In hundred dollar bills that would be 220 pounds). As several members of the gang get caught and go to prison, one escapes, but loses his marbles to bullet fragments and forgets where he put the money. Awkwardly he goes on to become Sheriff Bishop and hooks up with Carmen (Catalina Sandino Moreno) a gf of a former gang member.

The gang eventually unites and hunts down our sheriff.

The film is semi-grindhouse style with swagger and killing, but falls short in style. The heat, while mentioned, didn't really play into the plot that well unless you count the dry characters. It is an okay crime-drama, nothing special.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb. No nudity. Implied rape.

I am not a Van Damme fan but this movie worked for me. If you don't like westerns then you should skip this one. But if you do then this a modern western film and it is for you. There is a storyline that makes sense and is easy to follow. There are one or two surprises and the acting was acceptable across the board. I am an action fan by habit and this had just enough to keep me happy. My wife enjoyed this movie also and we will be watching it again in the future.

Swelter(released April/14)stars,among others, Jean-Claude Van Damme,Josh Henderson, Brad Carter, Alfred Molina and Lennie James.Swelter is not too bad of a film about crime,its consequences and ultimate redemption.JVCD may be the bigger name,but he is merely a cog in a much larger wheel.
The story finds a group of heist men relieving the RIO hotel in Vegas of a LOT of its takings,10 years before the current date;$10 million worth.During the escape James is shot in the head, while their leader Bowler is captured and sent to prison.The money goes missing.The Vegas police never found Bowler, as he was befriended by Molina,a doctor and spirited away.He took Bowler to Baker,a dusty old town in the the middle of Death Valley.Bowler eventually became town sheriff,with no memory of his past.
Fast forward and as the film begins Bowler is getting busted out during a ride in a prison bus,by the rest of the gang which includes JCVD.JCVD's character has had enough of the criminal life and wants out,once the missing money is found.There is a lot of interplay/bickering between gang members and Bowler has to take a tight reign on his posse.Through the grapevine the group has learned that Baker might be their target town.They drive there and find James,who has no memory of any of them.Bowler also finds that his ex girlfriend is currently shacking up with James,and is not pleased.
The group slowly but surely start to make trouble by starting fights and eventually murders one of the sheriff's deputies and the doctor.One day,with the sheriff as hostage,the group tell the whole town what the back story of the group is and Jame's involvement.They tell the people to either find their $10million dollars by the next morning or the sheriff will die and the town will burn to the ground.

What we have here is a bunch of bad guys who robbed a bank and then went to prison getting out and looking for the only guy that was in the gang that got shot and got away with the money and didn't go to prison who is now a sheriff living in a tiny town. Oh, and he has amnesia. did I just make it very succinct...yes. Now for the good news, terrific action and great performances and just all around entertaining. JCVD isn't the star of this movie and there are no flying kicks to the head. Everyone in this movie is crazy to some degree and it really does work. so just who do you root for? You decide who is the worst of the worst.

Its been quite a while since I was able to ejoy an action movie with a great cast and better than average acting apart from Jean Claude who I realy like but as an actor??? having said that he dosen;t have a major role. Its about a casino heist then cuts to 10 years on won't spoil the fun but its full of shooting, knifing and soforth. Great scenery to boot. Ok watch for in the credits Mr Van Dammes hair stylest. and will someone set me straight on who sings Jesus Is On The Mainline early in the film her name is Samantha ??? and any clues as to where to buy it. Enjoy tye movie I rented it then bought a copy and for $12 its now doing the rounds of my mail friends.
Cheers and enjoy Al Watts
