“I’m just going to give you a little time… to try to be reasonable. If you decide you’re not going to be reasonable, then one night when you come home, you’ll find me *inside*, waiting for you. And that will be the night you’ll wish you’d never been born. ” – Harry Reikle

Brief Synopsis – After a bank teller foils a robbery, he decides to take the money himself which gets him into trouble with the robber who wants his mobey back.
My Take on it – I had never even heard of this film until recently and was very pleased with everything it has to offer us.
Elliott Gould and Christopher Plummer are both excellent as the leads and it was so refreshing to meet two very intelligent characters playing cat and mouse with each other.
You never really know what will happen as they each get deeper and deeper involved in the crime.
The plot is extremely thrilling to watch as we slowly learn more and more about who each of the characters are and what they are willing to do in order to keep the money.
This is a film that I can’t wait to see again!
Bottom Line – Such a fun thriller to watch because the characters are all quite intelligent. The cat and mouse games they play with each other are very enjoyable because you really never know what will happen as they get deeper and deeper into trouble. Gould and Plummer are both superb here. Thrilling until the very end. Recommended!
