With outside help from his boyfriend, convicted money-launderer Howard (Paul Ben-Victor) choreographs a Texas prison-bus break and promises his co-felons a plane ride to freedom. One of the desperate men is Joe Ray (Kevin Gage), whose war hero brother Ruby Ray (Mickey Rourke) lives in the vicinity of the escape. Behind the FBI's back, Sheriff Mac Bradford (Frederic Forrest) engages Ruby to infiltrate the shopping mall where the rats have holed up. Initially, Howard makes sham demands about helicopters and ransom. In reality, he's gonna slip away with the loot stashed in his former mall office while the SWAT teams are preoccupied with his former bunkmates. Rourke hasn't looked this buffed in years, and thanks to such distractions as martial arts go-rounds and bomb-bursts, you might not ask yourself why sly Howard would let himself get cornered in the mall; why not let the authorities pursue the other escaped prisoners and sneak in alone to grab the money? Nor does it make sense for white-collar Howard to spoon feed lies to die-hard criminals. Adding insult to injury, Ben-Victor plays Howard like a demented queen. Certainly, most sissy masterminds would have concocted something more foolproof than Howard's idiotic scheme.
