Plot

Jimmy the Saint's business is videotaping the terminally-ill, so that they will be around to give 'Afterlife Advice' to their survivors. He hasn't been doing too well lately and has had to turn to loan-sharks to accomodate his failing business, as well as his expensive personal tastes. When an evil gangster-overlord buys up his note and demands a favor of Jimmy, in exchange for the interest that he can't afford, Jimmy capitulates. Jimmy is to scare someone for the gangster-overlord--really rough them up. Without giving too much away (spoiler), the scene goes down badly and Jimmy and his crew all end up with contracts on their heads for their trouble.
 

Comments

Not very original, but certainly entertaining The title is interesting in a certain way. You want to know what this movie is about. I was quite curious and while watching it I must say I was not disappointed. The movie is not very original and we see and hear things we recognize but it is all done in a way that I liked. Jimmy the Saint (Andy Garcia) once was a criminal but now he has his own company and wants to go straight. He has to do something for the big boss in Denver, the Man With the Plan (Christopher Walken), and it is made sure he will do the job. He rounds up a couple of his old friends including Critical Bill (Treat Williams), Pieces (Christopher Lloyd), Franchise (William Forsythe) and Easy Wind (Bill Nunn) and they do the job. Because Critical Bill loses his temper things go wrong and their lives are in danger, since the Man With the Plan is not a forgiving man. An assassin named Mister Shhh (Steve Buscemi) is coming for them. There is also some romance. A girl named Dagney (Gabrielle Anwar) comes in Jimmy's life, of course at the wrong time. There is also a hooker played by Fairuza Balk who knows Jimmy. When things are getting harder for Jimmy he kind of depends on her. How I mean this exactly is for you to see. A movie with an unoriginal but pretty nice screenplay, directed by Gary Fleder in a pretty cool way, with dialogue that makes sure we have a lot of nice quotes, with a good Andy Garcia and even better small parts for Walken (who makes every movie he is in entertaining) and Steve Buscemi. Definitely entertaining, just don't expect too much.
