This has a charismatic cast, some impressive stunts, and good production design. And Robert Blake's hilariously threatening dialogue rivals that of Dennis Farina in Midnight Run. The problem is that it's predictable, and there's something unsatisfyingly noncommittal about the whole enterprise; it's not quite action, not quite comedy, not quite romance, AND it's about a trio who keep trying to stay uninvolved with the things that interest them.

Lame attempt to cash in on the Snipes and Harrelson chemistry leaves out one important ingredient--a competent script. The movie is almost over before the train actually becomes part of the plotline.

Viewed August 2, 2021. I'd assume that the filmmakers were hoping the Snipes and Harrelson charm would carry this in the same way it carried the great White Men Can't Jump. They do have great chemistry, and the script puts them into so many weird scenarios — in a love triangle with Jennifer Lopez, going toe-to-toe with the terrifying Robert Blake or the equally terrifying Chris Cooper. This movie is clearly a mess and bordering on incompetent, but fun nonetheless.

So messy and dumb that I'm not sure it's eligible for my mid-90s-action-flick free pass programme. The arc of each character seems completely removed from the actual narrative arc of the film, and it's a jarring and disjointed narrative nightmare. Normally I love Chris Cooper but I'm not sure why the hell he was in this film - not him, specifically, but his character. What a weird movie. Robert Blake's set-chewing is the best part of it.

I haven't seen this kind of on-screen chemistry since White Men Can't Jump...but they switched the latin female lead around.

Numbingly commercial in its general outline, running gags, and exploitation of a readymade partnership, yet bears little resemblance to a polished commercial product on a script level. Dunno if there were too many rewrites or too few, but it's so sloppily and confusingly put-together as to represent something of a watermark for Hollywood action of the era. This is about the extent of the interest, but there's also Chris Cooper as a psycho firebug and Aida Turturro making to rape a drunk hobo.

MT or as it is more accurately titled, Unapologetic Money Spinner, is a completely predictable, by the numbers, Cliche ridden, unfunny mess of a film, with lead characters that seem to have been drawn together by lottery; either that or they were the only two people who read the script and said 'yes'. "We need two guys to play brothers" "But the only people available are Snipes and Harrelson, Boss!". "No problem, they can be foster brothers!". The special effects are OK, but the rest is dreadful

Cops John (Snipes) and Charlie (Harrelson) are also foster brothers who have spent years working the New York subways. John is a by-the-book cop who is growing tired of helping his brother Charlie out of trouble usually revolving around his gambling problems. When a beautiful transfer Grace (Lopez) arrives to their unit, the competition between brothers for her attention finally breaks the bond of their relationship and Charlie contemplates stealing the very money he is paid to protect.

The heist genre suggested by the title is misleading; the film is more a brother-brother comedy/drama with heist/action sequences thrown in, instead of the other way around. In this way, the plot's a bit of a jumble and the tone is confusing. While it gets points for uniqueness, focusing on just one of the aspects would have made for a better and more streamlined film, as neither the relational drama nor the heist scenes were particularly enthralling, despite decent chemistry between the leads.

Yeah, it's a cliche-ridden, pointless, loud Hollywood blockbuster, but I'd be lying if I said it's not fun on the first time through. Wesley and Woody (boy that's catchy) really do have great chemistry. I'd have given this about ten more points if it weren't for Jennifer Lopez.

Horrible movie. The only thing it had going for it was J-Lo (Living Color time period), still from what I remember there was little point to the whole thing except that snipes and harrelson were fighting over her. Stupid
