Movie Info

This violent crime drama has its dramatic roots in old spaghetti westerns. It is set in a small southwestern town on the US-Mexican border. The ordeal begins as a lone Frenchman hitchhikes. He is boorish, misogynistic actor Denis Brabant who was dumped there by his lover after he informed her of his wife's pregnancy. Meanwhile, all-around good guy Zac Cross is on a phone trying to convince his lover, Beth, to return to him. Denis asks for a ride. Zac, who is low on cash decides to take him in provided he pay his way. They load up Zac's convertible and set off. Soon they end up entangled with Astor, a drug dealer, and the non English-speaking Mexican girl Nadia, who hit the travelers up for a ride across the border. Along the way, they encounter a variety of self-serving characters.

Critic Reviews for Scorpion Spring

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

All the elements for a fun hard-boiled crime drama are present, except for a coherent story and a measure of good taste. What enhance the film are Lalo Schifrin's music and some idiosyncratic actors like Alfred Molina and Ruben Blades.
