It's been done before, and Raimi doesn't do it much differently or put his own stamp on it.

Overeager to pile so many possible, psych-lite motivations that nothing holds water or compels us very much... Terribly self-serious.

Unravels sadly in its second half, most of what transpires being utterly predictable, and what is not predictable, simply unbelievable.

As each character that we meet systematically gets killed, you care less and less about any of these people surviving.

"A Simple Plan" clutters up the story with unnecessary acts of violence and murder, and mainly stays on the surface, offering little more than cheap jolts of melodrama.

Raimi takes the old story about dishonour among thieves and renders it fresh through the calm, cool, steady assurance of the telling.

Not really a movie about a simple plan that turns out to be a terrible idea, but a movie about a terrible idea that turns out to be a terrible idea
