"Some of the performances and key scenes are so eccentric that the film is surely destined for some kind of cult status."
While pursuing a runaway teenager, Jack (Samuel L. Jackson), a cop, stumbles across a gang of crooks trying to pull off a heist. When they are alerted to his presence, Jack is taken hostage, and left in the custody of Erin (Milla Jovovich), the gang leader's girlfriend. While they are left alone, Jack and Erin form a bond, which creates complications for the rest of her crew. Based on a story by Dashiell Hammett.
