3000 Miles To Graceland

3000 Miles To Graceland, 2001 film starring Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Courtney Cox and more.  Quite the departure for the two main characters I think.  Haven’t seen Russell and Costner as such evil and criminal before!  Not saying it wasn’t entertaining though.

Costner plays Murphy, the head of a gang of ex cons who decide to rob a Las Vegas casino during an Elvis week.  Dressed as the King himself they enter and rob the casino and have to shoot it out to get out.  The gang is merciless in killing any in their way.  After escaping, and loosing one member on the way, decent reigns in the group as to sharing the money. Hanson, one of the gang played by Christian Slater, gets mouthy and Murphy quickly kills him off.  Telling the other two to bury him they are double crossed by the crazed Murphy and he shoots them both.  Zane (Russell) had been wearing a bullet proof vest and he is now out to get Murphy and the money.

As I said, a departure for the two but I think they had fun with it, they could let loose and be the ultimate criminals.  Enjoyable yet bloody movie.  Lots of killing but the plot line and the comedic scenes mixed in were great.  If you haven’t seen it I recommend you do.
