Mad Dog Time Reviews
Gabriel Byrne plays as comic relief, who knew that his wit could be turned to satire? Ellen Barkin as the femme fatale takes a gorgeous turn and Jeff Goldblum as suave Micky Holliday is cool hand luke for sure.
I did find Richard Dreyfuss a bit understated, but the rest of the cast made good in support including Billy Drago - always a villain and a wicked sense of humour.
Guns and bullets as a relief for pathos this is not, but certainly not a typical hollywood product either.
I have seen bad movies, really bad movies, atrocious movies, and then there are movies that are unexpectedly worse then anyone can comprehend. That's Mad Dog Time. It's a painfully awful, stupid, idiotic, boring, and horribly scripted piece of trash. A complete waste of time and talent. Set in a different planet were men in flashy tuxes kill each other, talk, kill, talk, then kill. Worst part is that it doesn't make sense. The head bad guy wants to see which one of his men can shoot the best. So what does he do? He make them play in a cowboy-styled shootout. If they're both your best men, why kill one and risk the other just so you can see which one is the best? Roger Ebert gave this zero stars, so I figured that I had to watch it in order to see how bad it was. My expectation was already very low. But it was worse than I thought. Way worse. Do not, I repeat DO NOT watch Mad Dog Time.
