Movie Info

A suitcase full of cash spells big trouble for a Chicago couple, who quickly find out that their big windfall comes with some barbed-wire strings attached. Sam Phelan (Chris Hemsworth) was just driving down the street when his life changed in the blink of an eye. Now, Sam and his wife, Leslie (Victoria Profeta), will never have to worry about money again. They will, however, have to worry about Pyke Kubic (Sean Bean), a vicious criminal who has every intention of finding his lost cash. When Pyke discovers that Sam and Leslie have already spent a sizable portion of the loot, he hatches a plan to make them work off their debt by robbing stores. Realizing that the only way out of their mess is through the thick of it, the clean-cut couple begins their life of crime, sinking ever deeper down a spiraling pool of obligation and desperation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Ca$h

All Critics (1)

  • Offers inept cinematography, stiff performances, and Sean Bean using a kitchen sink sprayer to mimic urination. The picture doesn't exactly live up to the sizzling potential of the genre.

Audience Reviews for Ca$h

    The only reviews I've seen on Ca$h have been negative, but I think this is based purely on the fact that when these reviewers saw the trailer, they were expecting a Tarantino or Scorsese film, which was so so so not the case. Professional criminal Sean Bean (Patriot Games, Death Race 2, the The Lord of the Rings series, Equilibrium, Troy, The Island, Silent Hill, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Hitcher [2007], Black Death, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) is attempting to track down miserable tradie Chris Hemsworth (A Perfect Getaway, Thor, The Cabin in the Woods, Home and Away) whom Bean believes to be in possession of the money his brother (also played by Bean) stole and dumped over a bridge when the cops were on his trail. This concept alone is enough to send through me a driving need to watch this film. Why? Because it has fucking Sean Bean and Chris Hemsworth in it, that's why! Sean Bean even plays two characters in the one film, just in case playing one antagonist wasn't enough! And okay yes, I think I jumped on the bandwagon a tad preemptively but is rather a good film. Though sure there's not a lot new to be chucked around in the film industry these days, Ca$h is at least a partially fresh idea, which is always nice to see. There's a couple of moments when the whole "suspension of disbelief" thing gives me some trouble, and the fact that Hemsworth pretends to have a Chicago-accent the entire film is also depressing. But all in all it was totally worth the watch. Though I'm sure put onto a shelf categorised by genre, Ca$h would probably find itself lumped in with the Action films, but in reality it isn't one. If there's such a thing as a comedic psychological crime thriller, then that's more or less what Ca$h would be. It's interesting most of all to think what you would do in the same position as Hemsworth and his wife (played by Victoria Profeta - Push, Meth Head), they have this strange relationship with their tormentor that's sort of a bizarre twist on Stockholm Syndrome, where they put up with him, and get into his world, even though they're in their own house. 70% -Gimly

    No one can be trusted when it comes to... Good entertaining movie! Ca$h isn't a thriller in academic film terms. It's not a traditional action film, either. If the film must have a label, it is neo noir satire. Noir features a desperate protagonist who is an anti-hero. "Ca$h" is an entertaining movie where everybody is corrupt in the end, even those that have been robbed and declare a larger amount to benefit with the insurance. Sean Bean performs a peculiar but very dangerous criminal with a great knowledge of economics. Chris Hemsworth is the typical American low middle class with a great alienation and lack of general culture. The screenplay is enjoyable and the resolution of the situation is satisfactory. A stroke of good luck turns lethal for Sam Phelan and his wife Leslie when they are faced with a life-changing decision that brings strange and sinister Pyke Kubic to their doorstep. As Pyke leads Sam and Leslie on a tumultuous adventure through the streets of Chicago, each are pulled deeper and deeper into a desperate spiral of deception and violence... All in the name of money.

    This movie is hilariously bad, almost as if it was a student film that lasts two hours. The production value is terrible, the story is just ridiculous and the dialogue is unnatural. However, it wouldn't be half as entertaining without the so-bad-it's-good element. I like the various attempts at being quirky and unique, especially the random shot where Sean Bean uses a kitchen sink hose to fake pee on a guy. I mean the only reason you should be seeing this is if you're looking for a Hemsworth fix.
