Fast Money is a great action movie with a mediocre script but great action scenes. If you're into car chases, big explosions, gunfights and explosive women, this is the movie to watch on a summer's night.
Beautiful and highly strung Yancy Butler steals the show as a professional car thief, when she inadvertently bumps into straight laced Matt McCoy's investigative reporter. When "going to get a car" (i.e., stealing one), she happens to break into the wheels of Trevor Goddard's Regy, a violent criminal in the employ of a developer who wants to finance his enterprise with counterfeit money. With a stupidity only matched by his violence, Regy leaves both two false plates and 2,7 million dollars lying in his car, and guess what, Yancy Butler's Francesca (Frank) has the bonus of her lifetime. They get pursued by both Regy and John Ashton's corrupt cop, Lt. Diego. Ashton (Taggert in Beverly Hills I & II) and Goddard make a fine comical pair of crooks. Always nice to see how the bad guys are getting more dialogue after Pulp Fiction.
In all, this is not a great movie, the script can be clunky, but the action is hot, and since Drop Zone, I admit to being a die hard Yancy Butler fan.
Don't hold your expectations too high, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
