The Way of the Gun


Two petty criminals decide to kidnap a young woman who is carrying the baby for a wealthy couple, in the hope of getting a few million dollars for her safe return. However, the father is well connected, and soon the heavies, as well as the not-too-effective bodyguards, are on their trail. With fifteen million dollars and a pregnant woman up for grabs, the action soon turns violent.

Ian Douglas: Definitely Tarrantino-influenced, with a good touch of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid thrown in as well. A gritty crime thriller, though I failed to see why the kidnappers continued with their plot as they learned more of the facts. The script features some witty dialogue and memorable quotes.
