    John Cusack (2012) and Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook) star in this action-packed crime thriller about a hit-man named Jack (Cusack), who takes an assignment to deliver a mysterious bag to his crafty boss (De Niro) with strict instructions not to peek inside. With the help of an elusive prostitute (Rebecca Da Costa, Breaking the Edge), Jack battles a mess-load of gunfire, a slew of crooked cops and unruly mobsters on a deadly quest to deliver the precious cargo and earn a big pay day. This action-packed crime thriller also stars Crispin Glover (Alice in Wonderland), Sticky Fingaz and Martin Klebba.

    2.0 out of 5 stars A bad episode of Twin Peaks March 8, 2014
    Format:DVD
    This movie is about a handful of bizarre characters following a twisted, confused plot which creeps along too slowly to hold your interest. They do alot of things that make little sense, things that go against their own best interests. Like when Cusack kills the feds in the next room and returns to find a hooker in his room rifling through his belongings. Instead of killing her, he offers her a ride to the bus station. Even after he discovers she has seen his file inside the fed's briefcase, he lets her live, even showing her the dead body in his trunk. After she bites his hand and breaks free, the prostitute starts laughing, because she thinks it's all funny. Allow me to introduce Rebecca Da Costa folks, graduate of the school of really bad acting. She is a hot Brazilian actress trying to play a Russian hooker, but the script is so bad she struggles to keep a straight face and in control of her accent. Heck, one heavy accent is as good as another, right? Anyway, she is hiding from her co-pimps, one an agent of Shield and the other a Serb-Croat dwarf with a bad spray tan and eyebrows by Estee Lauder. It gets more ridiculous from there.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Title Says It All May 4, 2014
    By C. Rupp
    Format:DVD
    I've been a fan of Cusack ever since "The Sure Thing." and I hate to say this but, it's almost as if he just gave up and is taking movie scripts for the money now. De Niro looks like a homeless gutter pimp with that hairdo. I almost didn't buy it because of the title and I should've listened to my gut instincts. One of the WORST movies I've ever tried to sit through. As I pulled the DVD out of my DVD player I thought about putting it into a yard sale. But being the good guy that I am, decided not to put another human being through the torture of watching it. I instead turned the DVD into an instant frisbee, watching it soar through the air and against the wall. "Did you look in the bag?" My answer is, YES I looked in the bag making sure it contained this movie as I threw it in the garbage can. Seriously, if you have something better to do with two hours of your time do it, otherwise you'll never get that time back.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Grosse Pulp Pointe Identity Fiction Blank March 9, 2014
    Format:DVD
    THE BAG MAN isn't obviously inspired by PULP FICTION, but it comes close. It is a tale about aggressively quirky characters trading offbeat dialogue between scenes of unflinching violence in a convoluted plot that centers around a special bag into which no one may peek. The man in charge of the bag is Jack (John Cusak riding the same facial expression for most of the film), and he is given the assignment by his long-time boss, Dragna (Robert Deniro playing it oddly low-key for a character with a silver pompadour and a name like Dragna). Jack is to stay with the bag in the 13th room of a creepy-deepy motel and wait for Dragna to come and get it. The assignment turns out to be much harder than that, with everyone getting in on the action, including the wheelchair bound manager of the hotel (Crispin Glover), a couple of hard-nosed cops, and a hooker (with a heart of gold?) named Rivka.

    The plot moves forward with our MacGuffin deluxe being the mysterious bag (fun drinking game: count how many times the phrase "Did you look in the bag?" is asked), but really what keeps things moving (even if it's just running in place) is Rivka being constantly beaten or threatened. In fact, every bad guy in this film is very clearly established solely by their willingness to hit a woman, including Rivka's pimps, a black guy with an eye patch and a Serb-Croat midget. Naturally.

    Technically, the film fails right off the bat because it is filmed with a noir-style darkness, but without allowing any kind of contrast to most scenes, making it near impossible to tell exactly what's going on at any given moment. Fortunately (or not), not a whole lot goes on, as evidenced by the dialogue, which is repetitive to the point of distraction.

    1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! March 23, 2014
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Ever start a movie and think it's so bad, but the cast have such great reputations, so you keep on watching it, hoping that it will get better? Well, trust me...it doesn't. Lame noir, stupid characters, silly plot (actually, was there a plot?). What a waste of time and talent.

    Format:DVD
    "Trust, the foundation of friendship." Jack (Cusack) is hired by Dragna (De Niro) to preform one simple task, take a bag to a motel and wait there for his boss. Things start going bad almost instantly. He has to fight off the prying motel clerk and other hotel guests while trying to keep a prostitute that he met safe. Just when he thinks he has everything figured out people and positions change, which only makes his job harder. Like many movies I watched this without seeing the trailer for it first but I thought with John Cusack and Robert De Niro this should be good. I can't say it was bad but it wasn't as good as I was hoping. The main downfall was the dialog, it was awful. As far as the rest of the movie goes, if it wasn't for De Niro and Cusack this would have been a bad made for TV movie. These two together raise the movie to legitimate, but they can only do so much with what they have. Overall, this wasn't a terrible movie but again my theory seems to hold true...De Niro has become an actor where 1 out of every 5 movies he does is really good, the rest are a watch once and forget it type. This is that kind. I give this a B-.
