An accountant's daughter is kidnapped and the kidnappers tell the father (Johnny Depp) she'll die if he doesn't assassinate the governer of California sometime within the next 90 minutes. Oh - and one of the kidnappers is Christopher Walken.
This 1995 crime/drama/thriller sounds like it should be full of win just because, well, come on. Walken! As a bad guy! and Depp!
Except it doesn't. I watched it mostly because I thought I saw it ages ago. Turns out I did - and now I know why I tried to forget it. Nothing Walken or Depp could do to make this movie any better than it is, which is terrible. Sorry guys. Classic example of how a lot of 1980s/1990s movie sensibilities were crap.
