Rescued from the desert by bar girl/amateur painter Vicky (Gloria Reuben), perplexed Jack (Ray Liotta) recovers his physical health quicker than his memory. He manages to recall that he's buried a fortune in loot, but not the exact location. And to whom does the treasure belong? To his ex-partner Hogan (Daniel Kash), who claims Jack double-crossed him? Or to the mysterious Mac (Armin Mueller Stahl), who believes Jack owes loyalty to his crime syndicate? Jeopardizing her own safety, Vicky stands by her newfound man, even when it becomes apparent that Jack was no one's idea of a Boy Scout. After finding a dead man named Stubbs (Harry Porter) inside a motel room, Jack recalls that Stubbs had furnished him with new identity papers. As he recovers more of his memory, Jack begins to realize that he'd been planning to defect from both Hogan and Mac and go straight. The question now is whether he can still do it. Just as you've seen this title before; you've seen this half-baked yet overwrought scenario before, too. Someone loses his memory, and the viewer waits for events to trigger its return; the film's producers must be counting on similar amnesia from the audience. Flashbacks of Jack's prior criminal behavior tip off the audience too soon that he'll ultimately be redeemed by the love of a good drink-hustler. Of course, by the time the inevitable hoary cliches about redemption arrive, this proficiently acted but indifferently directed film has managed &#151 as all films of its genre do &#151 to spent most of its running time wallowing in violence.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
