Storyline
It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy.

User Review

Costner and Russells' Revenge

Rating: 8/10

Scrolling through the 135+ comments, I'm amazed at how outraged so many
viewers are at the "excessive violence," "explicit sex," "foul language,"
etc., etc., etc. C'mon. A film is advertised as Elvises robbing a Las
Vegas casino during an Elvis convention. How much more lead in do you want?
You expect, action, thrills and … content? Amazing. Listen. This is
one of the funniest, outrageous films I've seen in a long time. Yes. The
story's incredible. But, in any film, we have to consider the level at
which we're willing to "buy in." I mean, some people were outraged at the
farting scenes in Shrek. Now, they're complaining because Russell and
Costner– especially the latter– are too violent. Well, let's go back a
year or so when Russell and Costner both made Wyatt Earp films, playing the
title roles. From my view, both vehicles were ghastly but entertaining.
So, I submit that what we have here is the COSTNER and RUSSELL Revenge
vehicle. Costner is always on the leafy edge, whether he's dancing with
wolves, building baseball fields for ghosts or water-skiing as bait for sea
monsters. Russell, whose track record in shoot 'em-ups is no less than
Stallone or Arnie, is likewise coming off some hound dog roles, such as
being an automated soldier, a remake of his Escape from New York (LA? Why'd
anyone want to go there in the first place?) and the sci-fi Stargate. Now,
we get these two guys in a mindless, black comedy, full of S&V– the most
since the cult film Thursday– with quirky twists and turns. Mindless
violence? Yes. Gratuitious sex? Yes. Entertaining? Yes– but only if you
don't take it too seriously. I loved it.
