Movie Info

Two lawmen find the call of corruption too loud to ignore in the drama Route 9. Booth Parker (Kyle MacLachlan) and Earl Whitney (Wade Williams) are two deputies in a small town who discover a crime scene along a deserted highway. There appears to have been a shoot-out with no living witnesses, and left in the dust by the side of the road are a van filled with illegal drugs and $1 million in cash. Booth and Earl are too weak to resist the urge to take the money, but when a federal agent (Roma Maffia) arrives to look into the case, they soon discover there's more to the crime than they originally expected. The knots become even more tangled when another sheriff (Peter Coyote), whose wife has been sleeping with Booth, starts sticking his nose into the case.

Audience Reviews for Route 9

Eh, this one is okay the first few times and is Wade Williams' first time acting! It has a few Name Brand Actors, but the direction is rather made-for-tv quality which makes sense because it was an HBO Original. But the plot is suspenseful and certainly original which made this movie one to buy at least just to brag that you own it (which I do)!

Not a bad movie, the storyline was a little bit all over the place though, worth watching if your in the mood for a decent thriller, seemed cheaply made though and the special effects weren't top notch.

Interesting and watchable, if a bit light, character driven film on the destruction of a small town sheriff's department as two of its own spin out of control when they can't resist going bad after coming upon the remnants of a drug deal gone bad, $1 million dollars in cash, and apparently no witnesses.
