Truth or Consequences, N.M. Movie Review Summary

Actors: Vincent Gallo, Kiefer Sutherland, Mykelti Williamson, Kevin Pollack, Kim Dickens

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Truth or Consequences, N.M.

Raymond Lembecke (Gallo), has been freed from prison after taking the fall for a drug dealer. After a year has passed, he, his girlfriend Addy (Dickens) and two other men plan to rob his boss. This seems only fair, because Ray's silence and his time locked up were never rewarded. He was given a menial job after his release. The other men are Curtis (Sutherland), a psychopath ready to kill at the drop of a hat, and Marcus (Williamson), a tough who seems a bit too sensitive for a hard criminal if you were to look more intensely at his actions. When the heist of the drugs goes wrong -- thanks to Curtis's hair-trigger temper and itchy finger -- the quartet goes on the lam. In the process of ditching Curtis's car, they run across a couple whose car they plan to take. The car is an RV and now, they must take the couple as hostages. Gordon (Pollack) is quiet and upright, but he eventually suffers from a bad case of Stockholm syndrome. Soon, it's not only the police but the mob that the group of hapless criminals is attempting to evade en route to a buy in New Mexico.
