Movie Info

For Tes (Akerman) and her two cohorts Kara (Nikki Reed) and Tara (Deborah Ann Woll), the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel (Willis) at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game - with large guns pointed at everyone.

Critic Reviews for Catch .44

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2) | Rotten (3)

  • A drug-deal tale featuring top-drawer actors trying to have fun with a medium-strength script. Sometimes they succeed, but not often enough to elevate the film to "Pulp Fiction" territory.

  • Although it gives Willis and Whitaker an off-road chance to show off their character-actor chops, there's not much to recommend in this cinematic conceit.

  • A collection of all the Quentin Tarantino mannerisms we make fun of ... but none of the understanding of human nature that goes along with them.

    Tries so desperately to emulate Pulp Fiction, that it's hard to say if Catch .44 would have been any good if it just tried to blaze its own trail. Seeing as it didn't, this is the movie we have: One that falls just short of "Okay".

    Filmed in a noir style, Catch .44 is a gritty crime drama. Using nonlinear storytelling, the film follows a drug heist that goes wrong and how each character arrived at the heist. Starring Malin Akerman, Nikki Reed, Forest Whitaker, and Bruce Willis, the film has some solid talent. The story is rather interesting and has a number of twists and reveals that add to the suspense and mystery. Still, some aspects of the film don't work; the dialog in particular is weak and uneven. While there are some significant flaws, Catch .44 delivers exciting action and an intriguing story.

    Odd title but familiar film with Willis taking part in another Tarantino-ish outing that does leave you feeling somewhat disappointed. When I say Tarantino-ish I mean the plot is basically cut up and all over the show. We start at the end and work backwards with flashbacks aplenty to find out what happens. Thing is we never really discover the whole point behind most of it (only some characters) and frankly I didn't much care either. The plot revolves around a trio of women (terrible casting and boring performances) whom I'm guessing are suppose to be sexy drug dealing associates of Willis (epic fail there). They are to wait in a diner and pick up a shipment but they are setup and everything goes tits up (yawn!). The problem is these characters aren't developed in any way and don't last too long either, so you aren't given the chance to like them and simply aren't bothered when the shit hits the fan. The other characters are a mixed bunch that include Willis who is badly miscast as a drug dealing kingpin, Whitaker as a associate of Willis, acts well as usual but has this really annoying Spanish accent (I think it was Spanish) and Dourif in a cameo really. He isn't really important in any way, no point him even being there. The setup and shootout that happens at the start (which is the end) is the best part. When you see it you wanna know what happens next but instead you are fed about 1h 20mins of flashbacks showing what happened before and how it all led up to the shootout, which isn't very interesting. So in short the finale stand off is the best bit where as the rest of the film is uninspired and dull with drab acting.

    I wasn't too impressed in the way the direction went with the passing of the acting baton from "ol' skool" to "new school". With Ronny (Forrest Whitaker) taking orders from his boss Mel (Bruce Willis) for years as his "messenger" he befriends and introduces a woman Tess (Malin Akeman) to Mel...into the aspects of "the business" When Mel lets Tess in on "one last score" She invites her two friends who are sisters Kara (Nikki Reed) and Tara (Deborah Ann Wolf) along for this last score which turns out deadly at a diner...as the bodies pile up...the answers become more and more clearer as of whom is responsible for the carnage...not bad but fairly well scripted...see this if you want. I really expected so much more...but was denied that pleasure..
