Rating: C -- Too bad that the gifted director Hal Ashby (Last Detail, Shampoo) ended his career with such a sleazy thriller that even the reliable and appealing Jeff Bridges can't salvage. Full Review

What happened? With Ashby, Bridges, Arquette and a script co-written by Oliver Stone, you expect the result to be better than a long drawn-out episode of The Equalizer. Full Review

An oddly-paced work that is sometimes a thriller and sometimes a love story, succeeding at neither. Full Review

Product Description:

Hal Ashby's last film, taken from Lawrence Block's novel 8 MILLION WAYS TO DIE, stars Jeff Bridges as Scudder, a down-and-out alcoholic ex-cop who was dismissed from the force after a questionable shooting. He's hired by Sunny (Alexandra Paul), an expensive prostitute, to pay off her pimp, Chance (Randy Brooks), the owner of a an after hours club, so she can get out of "the life." When she's murdered while trying to leave town with a large suitcase full of cash, Scudder decides to find her killer. At the club he meets Sarah (Rosanna Arquette), another prostitute, who has a drinking problem of her own. Through her he connects Sunny to one of the club's frequent customers, Angel (Andy Garcia), a volatile, typically psychotic coke dealer who calls everybody "baby." He's been using a supermarket owned by Chance to smuggle drugs. When Angel abducts Sarah, for whom he has, to say the least, mixed feelings, Scudder must arrange a deal for her return.

The film was written by Oliver Stone with his usual obscenity-filled machismo. Bridges and Garcia's confrontational scenes have a tense undercurrent as they each try to convince the other that they don't care about a woman they both love.

Plot Synopsis:

An ex-cop with a drinking problem freelances on jobs other cops won't touch. When he accepts a fat fee to help a hooker get free of her pimp, he lands in the middle of a savage murder that hits a bit too close to home.

Production Notes:

  • Director Hal Ashby and producer Steve Roth were supposedly fired before Ashby could complete the film. Locked out of the editing room, they later sued Producers Sales Organization, the film's production company.
  • 8 MILLION WAYS TO DIE was Ashby's last directorial effort. He died in 1988 of liver cancer.
