A light, breezy caper. It's not the most special thing in the world, but is very entertaining and is impeccably paced.
I really only watched this because of Walter Hill's involvement and honestly there is a lot of similarities between this and his work to follow. This and The Driver feel very similar, most notably in its dynamic between the main characters.
Yorkin's directing is standard, very TV movie-ish, but the acting and writing are what makes it stand out. I loved watching O'Neal and Oates stand off, Oates knowing exactly what O'Neal's doing.
This was really hard to track down surprisingly. It was worth it though, I'd say. Fans of Walter Hill like myself would dig this.
