A good heist, but otherwise a dull drama

Audience Reviews for The Real McCoy

kind of touching in a corny way. this movie took itself too seriously, but kim and val do the best they can.

as far as acting goes, you won't see anything spectacular in this. it is an entertaining action movie though. there are some slower spots but it's nothing drastic. i liked Kim Basinger in this; she was a very strong female lead. the ending was a bit outrageous, if not completely unbelievable, but it creates a happy ending. it's entertaining.

** (out of four) Kim Basinger is in over her head in this drama about a woman who has just spent six years in prison on burglary charges, She finds life hard on the outside and soon drifts back towards a life of crime.
