      Michael M it was amazing until the disaster end, it was totally time wasting because in the end no one wins it...that is why I am not going to watch season 2 and so on... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/08/23 Full Review Chris M This is so dumb. Smart enough to pull an "Ocean's 11" style heist but dumb enough to know it was a mob bank. A massive drug bust with marked money they somehow got into a mob bank. But was stupid enough to post only two feds sitting in a car gabbing, with no surveillance equipment and the feds not even watching the bank. They couldn't even hear a BANK ROBBERY going on right across the street. Which would be fine, if it was a comedy. Also, I don't know how marked money works but I'm pretty sure it's not as bright as a stamp that says, "FBI" isn't how they do it. Also, if it was only visible under black light, then it was odd they'd look for stolen money under black. But it didn't look like black light. Again if this was a comedy it would be brilliant. But the movie was played seriously making it unintentionally funny. Which is something your action crime drama should not be. They wanted "Heat" but they got "The Naked Gun". Lastly, after the heist it stops to a crawl pacing wise as the characters are not that likable. Why is it that movie crooks always goes right back to crime as soon as they get out? If they're smart enough to pull these crimes but stupid enough not to think that the cops knows their patterns. It's just awful. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a bad direct-to-video film. It does have a good story, great acting from Christian Slater and Val Kilmer, and some good action. There are some little cheesy bits here and there, but it doesn't really hurt the film to where I can safely say I've seen much worse. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member More Christian Slater/Val Kilmer fun. So bad it's awesome. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Verne Troyer stars in the beginning of this film. Watch the pregnant girlfriend - that's where Verne first shows. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Thomas Taylor (Christian Slater) is a thief recently released from jail. He's trying to start his life over again with his girlfriend and daughter by pulling one more job to get them enough cash to live off. Except that once they've pulled off the job, they realise they now have nearly $2million in marked bills. To make matters worse, they have now entangled themselves in a money-laundering scheme set up by corrupt FBI agent Mark Cornell (Val Kilmer). In order to clear himself of Cornell's blackmail, and to keep his daughter safe, Taylor has to pull off one more job. The results of which are sadly predictable and clichéd. This film was so low-budget it was laughable, but that is part of what made me enjoy it. The chase scenes in the car were hilarious, as was how cheesy the majority of this film was in general. "Run for the Money" (or "Hard Cash") doesn't take itself seriously in the slightest. The film was definitely carried by some of the more noteable actors - Christian Slater, Val Kilmer, Daryl Hannah, and Verne Troyer - but was highly enjoyable nonetheless.

      Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 21, 2005 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Apollo Guide A moral fable in which the deepest analysis comes from the politics surrounding the film rather than the lifeless garbage found within the movie. Rated: 54/100 Mar 16, 2004 Full Review David N. Butterworth La Movie Boeuf When the opening scene makes you feel as though you've already missed about an hour of the plot you know you're in trouble. Rated: 0/4 Jul 3, 2003 Full Review Caffeinated Clint Moviehole Desperate times call for desperate measures, and for former box office kings Christian Slater and Val Kilmer, the bottom of the scrap heap is "Hard Cash", a mostly mediocre action number that hardly showcases their talent Jun 7, 2002 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com It beats sitcom reruns.
