    Incredibly trashy but still enjoyable (if pointless) remake of Sam Peckinpah's original. Basinger is awful, Baldwin is serviceable, Woods chews the scenery.

    Cool criminals cavort capriciously in this casual entertainment effort that's concerned about how cool everything looks and not about the complexity. Still fun.

    The Getaway, a remake of Sam Peckinpah's excellent escape thriller of the same name, adapted from a story by Jim Thompson, is the story of ill-fated romance on the run. Doc McCoy (Alec Baldwin) is released from a Mexican prison with the help of gangster Jack Benyon (James Woods) who wants Doc's help in the hold-up of a racetrack. With the help of Doc's wife Carol (Kim Basinger), and Jack's thugs Rudy (Michael Madsen) and Frank (Philip Hoffman), the robbery is successful, but a guard is murdered. Doc also finds out that Carol has had an affair with Benyon. Carol shoots Benyon and the two flee for Mexico and freedom.

    The plot had suspense, momentum, some spectacular action, not to mention some steamy sizzle between the two leads Baldwin and Basinger and it held my interest throughout. Very entertaining and I liked Michael Madsen as the "bad guy" and James Woods was creepily sinister as Jack Benyon.
