There is no other greatness! A great comidic opening! following up with some of the greatest gun play scenes in film history! Follow more comedy! Follow even better Gun play!!! NOW, add some amazing quotes throughout the entire movie! Then, the cast adds a whole new flare to the movie, making it seem as though they are all actually enjoying there work! Every time you watch this film you catch more on the plot! Showing an even more indepth plot line that is absolutely brilliant!

Rare movie with both a complete story and lots of action. Starts off with comedy and slowly eases into the action all while telling an interesting story.

I remember seeing this on video in about 2001-2 and it left me with an impression of being really good. On a rewatch, less impressed. Perhaps it's been repeated or I now recognise it's derivative of Tarantine or similar

An excellent, mostly off-the-radar neo-Western. The two anti-heroes are a perfect mixture of cool and bumbling, right up to the climactic old person shoot-out.

This is why we can’t have nice things! 22 years later I am still bitter this wasn’t a bigger deal. Extremely well constructed, written and acted, it doesn’t give it’s thrills away easily, but rather boils and boils until it all comes down in one of the better American showdowns of all time. WotG, you gave us M:I6 but I wish you’d given us 20 more movies like you.

The action itself is (really) good, but this is just sadism.

Stopped watching after 20 minutes. Bad 80s action and clumsily paced dialogue.

Hot off of "The Usual Suspects", Christopher McQuarrie both writes and directs this one (reteaming with the always fantastic Benicio Del Toro). It's not as good but, it would be tough to live up to expectations after such a brilliant film. This is a very enjoyable movie with an opening scene that will blow your mind.

One of those movies that spawned up in the wake of Reservoir Dogs and Boondock Saints. Decent dialogue, but excellent action make me rate this one highly. Like someone else noted it has the feel of a western, but mixed with a roadmovie. The violence and action is occasionally even clever. Gives meaning to the term 'gun-fu'.
